13.02.2017 - Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, Nicolas Becker, moderated by Milena Fessmann
Often these days the canned scores of blockbusters seem almost indistinguishable. But why leave your audience tone-deaf when half the impact of a good story emanates from an original soundtrack? Through a range of collaborations from experimental (A Spell to Ward Off the Darkness) to major productions (Arrival), artist and multi-instrumentalist Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe and sound designer and foley artist Nicolas Becker have developed a unique working relationship. Rather than composing, they improvise, let go, jam. They prefer field recordings to library sounds and use their voices and bodies as instruments, turning sounds into music and music into sounds. Through a mix of talk and performance, the two make tangible how creating scores can be a collective discovery trip that demands complete physical play.
