Brighton Modular Meet

Live: Saturday 1st July Concert at the ACCA - tickets here.

Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe (b. 1975) is an artist and composer that works with voice in the realm of spontaneous music. Most recently, creating work with modular synthesizer for both sound and video has been a focus of live performance and installation.

 

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.

 

 

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.
