In the first time collaboration between innovative sound artists Todd Barton, Rachelle Rahmé, and Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, the trio will tonally sculpt a hypnotic sci-fi dreamscape.
The evening will begin with a solo improvisation by Todd Barton, followed by a duo of Todd and Rachelle Rahmé, who will be doing a reading from her science fiction novella, Superveillance, published earlier this year by art edition press Aventures Ltd. This duo will be followed by a solo improvisation from Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe for voice and modular synthesizer. The finale will be a trio improvisation between Barton, Rahmé, and Lowe.
