Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe: Three-Sided Figure
Lampo Performance Series
May 21, 2022 (4pm)
Performance

RSVP required

Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe (b.1975, Kansas City, Mo.) premieres Three-Sided Figure, his new modular synth and voice performance. Lowe is an artist and composer working primarily with voice and modular synthesizers in the realm of spontaneous music. Speaking about his work, he reflects that “the marriage of synthesis and voice has allowed for a heightened physicality in the way of ecstatic music.” The sensitivity of analogue modular systems echoes the organic nature of vocal expression, which in this case is meant to put forth a trancelike state, to usher in a deeper listening through sound and feeling.

Collaborators include Ben Russell, Ben Rivers, Rose Lazar, Hisham Akira Bharoocha, Ben Vida, Lucky Dragons, Alan Licht, Patrick Smith, Monica Baptista, Lee Ranaldo, Kevin Martin, Chris Johanson, Tyondai Braxton, David Scott Stone, Genesis P-Orridge and Rose Kallal, as well as many others. Select appearances 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 with Evan Calder Williams (2012), Peradam with Sabrina Ratté at EMPAC (2014), Cinéma du Réel at the Centre Georges Pompidou (2014), performances with Ariel Kalma at Lincoln Center (2015), Unsound Festival and San Francisco Electronic Music Festival (2018), and Tarek Atoui’s Organ Within at Kurimanzutto and the Guggenheim Museum (2019). In November 2014, Lowe premiered Early Hypnagog in the Lampo series. Recent projects include composing the Candyman score (2021), which was on the shortlist to receive an Oscar nomination for Best Original Score, and sound for Rashaad Newsome’s Assembly at the Park Avenue Armory (2022). He lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Since 2010 the Graham Foundation has partnered with Lampo to produce an international performance series held at the Madlener House. Lampo, founded in 1997, is a nonprofit organization for experimental music and intermedia projects.
