Ian Rodriguez is an artist, producer, and composer.
His work as Lorica (and previously as Avbvrn) filters a surgical attention to detail and sound design through a wide-scope approach to atmosphere and the spatial qualities of music. The resulting works conjure up dramatic, vivid, and tactile sonic landscapes that recall classical forms and techniques, while drawing upon contemporary textures and approaches to rhythm and memory.

His sound, video, performance, and visual works highlight interests in topics such as ecology, interdependence, the impermanence of things, our relationship to history, our experience of nature, and considerations of fragility.
