Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe (aka Lichens) is one of the faces you may have seen in around the Make Noise booth at NAMM, MESSE and also Superbooth. One thing that we often forget, or at least focus on is that many people involved on the manufacturer side are not just technically minded, but artists and performers in their own right.
Here we see Robert performing at the Superbooth show in Berlin from earlier this year, where manufacturers were invited to present in timed slots during the day. This was all streamed live, and archived on the Superbooth Live Channel ( well worth a browse). In most cases, talking tech was kept to a minimum and performance was the focus - showing the musical applications so often missing in tech demos.
