Robert A.A. Lowe
Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe is an artist and multi instrumentalist that 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 a focus of live performance and recordings.
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 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 Deep Listening through sound and feeling. Losing one's self in sound while being acutely self aware.

Arik Moonhawk Roper
Arik Moonhawk Roper attended the School of Visual Arts in New York from 1991-1995 specializing in cartooning, illustration, and screen printing. He began his early career primarily working with bands creating album art for cds and records for which he developed a devoted following. He soon moved into storyboarding for commercial and ad agencies, then onward into animation design, book and magazine illustration, visual design for music industry artists, and art direction for creative groups and game companies. Roper’s work encompasses a diverse field of design and distinct style, ranging from black and white illustration, to meticulous lettering and logo design, to rich abstract psychedelic color and landscapes that often seem to exist in their own universe. The imagery springs from the depths of a fertile imagination, invoking psychedelic visions, ancient dreams, and idyllic natural environments. With an interest in mythology, consciousness, psychology, religion and other timeless subjects, Roper mixes the light and the dark within his art to reveal imagery which is at once strangely unique, distantly familiar and always soaked with an earnestly fantastic aesthetic.
