Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe is an artist and multi-instrumentalist who works with voice in the realm of spontaneous music often, under the moniker of Lichens. Most recently, creating patch pieces with modular synthesizer and singing to them has been the core focus of live his performance and recording practice.

Quality of sound through the marriage of synthesis coupled with voice has allowed for a heightened physicality in the way of ecstatic music, both in a live setting and recorded. The sensitivity of analog modular systems echoes the organic nature of vocal expression, which in this case is meant to put forth a trancelike state and usher in Deep Listening through sound and feeling; losing one’s self in sound while being acutely self aware.
