Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe
Curated by The Bug
Few musicians are as versatile, risk-taking and compulsively explorative as Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe. This nomadic musician redefined math and noise rock with 90 Day Men and helped spearhead druidic drone metal deities Om. Under the moniker Lichens and his own name, Lowe conjures astonishing ecosystems of modular soundscapes and alien-sounding vocal improvisations. As fickle and unpredictable as Lowe’s career has been, his well-scrutinized body of work is perpetually driven to amass new skills, new collaborators and a new understanding of sound.
