Synthspert Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe has been releasing a slew of excellent modular experiments for labels far and wide, with techno blurtings on DDS, pretty sounds on Kranky and Type, plus a cosmic collaboration with legend Ariel Kalma for FRKWYS. His newest release comes for More Than Human and sees him working with unprecedented narratives, offering an imaginary soundtrack for an African sci-fi film. Comes with phenomenal artwork by Lowe himself.
Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe
Lichens’ Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe is well-versed in the way of the synth, releasing various meditations and collaborating with the likes of Ariel Kalma, Neotantrik and one Suzanne Ciani. Arriving via Latency, one side of this 12” considers “the relationship of machine and human”, whereas the other sets its sights on a “unified human machine wherein the voice becomes the rhythm – all become one instrument.” Sound a little grand? Take it the Robert AA Lowe way: one second at a time.
A special recording of a special concert by the duo of Air Cushion Finish and Lichens. This all took place at Wokule!, an old GDR holiday camp in Biesenthal, where the artists apparently played in the kitchen! It’s a lush and floaty session that must have been a treat to witness. Released by alt.vinyl on heavy-card-sleeve-housed vinyl, in a limited edition of 250.
