Performance by Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe
In conversation with Sarah Cahill
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.
