Experimental Eurorack - Robert Lowe
Artistic Process with Modular Synthesizers
The talk will be focused on artistic/creative process with the modular synthesizer as the tool/object for said creation.
Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe (b. 1975) is an artist and composer that works with voice in the realm of spontaneous music often under the moniker of Lichens. Most recently, creating patch pieces with modular synthesizer and tonal vocal work has been a focus of live performance and recordings.
The marriage of synthesis and the voice has allowed for a heightened physicality in the way of ecstatic music, both in a live setting and recorded. The sensitivity of analogue modular synthesis echoes the organic nature of vocal expression which in this case is meant to put forth a trancelike state.
Lowe’s works on paper tend towards human relations to the natural/magical world and the repetition of motifs. Recent video work has been a concentration in analogue video synthesis.
Through collaboration Robert has worked with Ben Russell, Ben Rivers, Sabrina Ratté, Rose Lazar, Nicolas Becker, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Tarek Atoui, Philippe Parreno, Evan Calder Williams, Ariel Kalma, Lucky Dragons, Alexandra Wolkowicz, Biba Bell, ADULT., Doug Aitken, and Rose Kallal, as well as many others.
Im Kultursaal wird gefeiert: Nach der Messe ist vor der Messe und hier wird kultiviert, was theoretisch soeben noch eine Maschine war. Techno und andere elektronische Musik für den Tanzboden in unzähligen Facetten zeigen unsere Kunden hier auch den Herstellern und Entwicklern, das konstruktive Gespräch ist auch hier nicht ausgeschlossen.
