Fazo IV: La Kvalito de Speguloj
Rainbow Body Records
rbbd004 - 2009
Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe (Lichens, Singer, 90 Day Men) constructs haunting, beautiful, at times hypnotic rhythms and melodies using synthesizers. His love of the warm, bubbling, physical sounds of the synthesizer permeates these seven songs, which seem simultaneously strangely familiar yet also somehow distant and alien. Fazo IV: La Kvalito de Speguloj (Phase 4: The Quality of Mirrors) is a further extension of Lowe’s exploration of sonic vocabularies and emotional landscapes. Because the modes Lowe utilizes are tonally and melodically universal to his ear, he has titled the album in the language of Esperanto-- the universal language constructed to foster international understanding and peace.
