Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe: Three-Sided Figure Lampo Performance Series

Saturday, May 21, 2022 4 – 5 pm

Register here; limited capacity  

Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe 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. In November 2014, Lowe premiered Early Hypnagog in the Lampo series at the Graham Foundation. 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.
