Lowell Gerard Fuchs (b. 1993, Atlanta) is a multimedia artist who currently resides in Greensboro, NC. An explorer of unique extramusical concepts, Lowell’s curiosity shepherds his compositions in various directions. From graphic art notation constructed from oil stains, to multimedia works conceived from theories in neuroscience on reality and consciousness, a fascination of human perception, social movements, and sense of community are the cornerstones to his work. Much of his works encompass a strong symbolic and programmatic undertone, often concerning community, impermanence and the human condition.
His recent works include, MAYA (commissioned by saxophonist Reese Burgan, VDAY Global Organization, and Lone Star College Montgomery - Houston, TX), People (commissioned by pianist James W. Iman, Pittsburgh, PA), Oil Stained America (performed by loadbang), and AMERICAN BEAUTY (commissioned by Bent Frequency, Atlanta, GA). Lowell is currently working on a multimedia work commissioned by Chamber Cartel (Atlanta, GA), an installation + performer work for percussionist Victor Pons, and a piece for Pie for Two. His music has been heard at New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival, Atlanta’s SoundNOW Contemporary Classical Music Festival, Boston’s Summer Institute for Contemporary Performance Practice, Charlotte New Music Festival, the XXII Festival Eduardo Mata in Oaxaca, Mexico, and elsewhere.
Currently, Lowell is working with the Charlotte New Music Festival as Production Manager while attending the University of North Carolina Greensboro for a Masters of Music in Music Composition. He holds a Teaching Assistant position and was awarded a Graduate Fellowship at UNCG. Lowell received his B.M. degree from Georgia State University and held a University Assistantship at GSU’s School of Music and was awarded Lucille Allen Memorial Scholarship (2013-2015). His principle composition teachers include Mark Engebretson (2016), Mischa Salkind-Pearl (16-17), Alejandro Rutty (2017), Robert Scott Thompson (2014-2015) and Brent Milam (2013-2014). He also studied closely with composer Nickitas Demos (2012-2015) and percussion professor Stuart Gerber (2011-2014).
