Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe
The »ePhil« season is opened this year by the American Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, who appears under the name Lichens. Lowe embeds his ethereal voice into the pulsating sounds of the modular synthesizers so skilfully that it is soon hard to tell what is electronic and what is acoustic. The listener rapidly finds himself in a trance-like state.
At the centre of Hamburg’s St. Pauli district, in the bunker on Feldstraße, audiences can hear electronic music in the »ePhil« series that has the courage of its convictions. Electronic artists, creative hardware builders and freethinkers who love to experiment have been producing exciting sensual experiences here since 2015, with sounds analogue and digital, and with visual installations. In the darkened atmosphere of the »resonanzraum«, voted Music Club of the Year for 2017, four musical adventurers give us a look at the music of the future.
