Resonance
Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe: Performance (Clip)
Date: June 18, 2014
Running Time: 00:43:00

Join us for the fifth event in the series, this time featuring Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, an artist and multi-instrumentalist who works with voice to create spontaneous and ecstatic musical compositions. Lowe—who also performs under the moniker Lichens—uses effects boxes to loop guitars, percussion, and vocals to form a reverberating drone. His most recent performances and recordings, such as Timon Irnok Manta and Lítió Fólk, have combined his voice with modular synthesizer patch compositions. Lowe believes that the sensitivity of analogue modular sound systems echoes the organic nature of vocal expression, and that the two together can induce a trancelike state that promotes deeper listening. Lowe recently worked with video artist Sabrina Ratté on a live performance work entitled Peradam, which means an object that is revealed only to those who seek it.
A new series exploring the work of contemporary composers and sound artists hosted by renowned musician and San Francisco Bay Area radio host, Sarah Cahill. Resonance performances will be held in the Exploratorium’s new Kanbar Forum, and enlivened by its state-of-the-art, 72-channel Meyer Sound Constellation sound system, providing the audience with an intimate experience of each event’s sonic details. The series will also include additional media on the topic of sound .
