Biography

Lowfish is the musical guise of Gregory de Rocher, co-owner of Canada’s premiere source for robot music, Suction Records. Born in Toronto in 1972, Lowfish spent his earliest years plagued with hearing problems, and was forced monthly to confinement in a sound-proof hospital laboratory, listening to the gurgling sounds of his brain. Once cured, young Lowfish found sanctuary in the sound of music, and was particularly infatuated with his mom’s disco 8-track of Giorgio Moroder’s robotic masterpiece “I Feel Love”.

On a subsequent trip to the Ontario Science Centre, Lowfish witnessed a modular synthesiser demonstration, where he made the connection between this machine and “those cool sounds”. This began Lowfish’s quest for all things robot, from dodgy 70s modular music, to 80s new wave and industrial, through to various strains of 90s weird electronics.

Lowfish has been collecting gear and committing noise to tape since the age of 16. For over a decade, Lowfish has witnessed trends in electronic music come and go, and has developed a thorough appreciation for electronic sounds and melodies that are warm, memorable and timeless.

Raised on substantial doses of industrial music (Skinny Puppy, Nitzer Ebb) and early melodic electronica (Aphex Twin, early Warp Records output)
Lowfish now finds himself an influential international player in the world of electronic music.
