Who's on this release:
“Robert T, is a retired Air traffic controller, father of two and a full time Sonic Sorcerer.”
All of his tracks are recorded live in one take, with only hardware, no computers. In essence, everything he does is a live concert with a one-person audience: himself.
His sound ranges from rhythmical to soundscapes and ambient beats; a hybrid of 70s Analog sci-fi music and 90s beat-driven electronica. Inspired by avant-garde artists like French pioneer Jean-Michel Jarre and the influential German electronic group Tangerine Dream, Robert T uses an array of vintage and modern hardware synthesizers and drum machines to produce radical, ambient sounds. But Robert T isn't your typical experimental artist—he found himself in the game unexpectedly. Six years ago, he was forced into early retirement after a 20-year career as an air traffic controller in New-Brunswick.
Quite suddenly, the 50-year-old father of two found himself with a lot of time on his hands, so he started playing with used gear—an old drum machine and a Kaoss pad. His new 'toys' suddenly became a form of therapy.
Now he presents us with two original compositions: Alkali and DOS Hack.
As guest remixer, Possibly Infected converts DOS Hack into a dance floor friendly version.
