Lowell Gerard Fuchs


(b. 1993, Gainesville, Georgia) is an avant-garde composer who currently resides in Atlanta, Ga. An explorer of unique sonic synthesis, Fuchs’s curiosity shepherds his compositions in various directions. From experimental music with unspecified ensemble, to art songs with percussion accompaniment, a fascination of timbre, extended techniques, and texture are the cornerstones to many of his compositions. Many of his works encompass a strong symbolic and programmatic undertone, often concerning politics and the human condition.
Fuchs is working on a Bachelor of Music degree in Music Composition at Georgia State University. His principle composition teachers include Robert Scott Thompson (2014- present) and Brent Milam (2013-2014). He also studies closely with composer Nickitas Demos (2012-present) and percussion professor Stuart Gerber (2011-2014). Currently, Fuchs is Georgia State’s SCI (Society of Composer Inc.) Student Chapter President (2014-2015) and has also held the chapter position of Secretary (2013-2014). He is also a University Assistant of GSU’s School of Music and was awarded Lucille Allen Memorial Scholarship (2013-2015). In February 2014 The Voices in Maximilian’s Head, his art song for soprano voice and percussion, was featured on the Southeastern New Music Symposium.
