Robert A.A. Lowe
LAMPO PERFORMANCE SERIES
On November 8, Brooklyn-based artist and composer Robert A.A. Lowe will perform a new improvisation with voice, using a modular synthesizer amplified in quad sound.
Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe (b. 1975, Kansas City, MO) is an artist and composer who works with voice in the realm of spontaneous music, often under the moniker of Lichens. Interested in the physicality of sound, Lowe creates patch pieces using modular synthesizers and tonal vocalizations, both in live performance and recording. His music relies on the sensitivity of analogue modular systems to echo the organic nature of vocal expression in order to create a trance-like state and usher in a deeper listening through sound and feeling. Lowe has collaborated with Ben Russell, Ben Rivers, Sabrina Ratté, Rose Lazar, Nicolas Becker, Tarek Atoui, Evan Calder Williams, Ariel Kalma, Lucky Dragons, Doug Aitken, Hisham Akira Bharoocha, Patrick Smith, Monica Baptista, Kevin Martin, Chris Johanson, Tyondai Braxton, David Scott Stone and Rose Kallal, among others. Select performances include Doug Aitken's "Migration" happening at 303 Gallery (2008) and Princeton University (2010); "La Suite" for Serpentine Gallery (2012); "In the Wan Light of Napalm and Moon," a collaboration with Evan Calder Williams (2012); "Peradam" with Sabrina Ratté at EMPAC (2014); and Cinema du Réel at the Centre Georges Pompidou (2014).
This performance is presented in partnership with Lampo. Founded in 1997, Lampo is a non-profit organization for experimental music, sound art, and intermedia projects. Visit www.lampo.org.
