Robert is a media composer with over twenty five years worth of experience creating music and sound design assets. His passion first began when he was 12 years old, using an Atari ST running Hybrid Arts Edit Track, Steinberg Cubase and a four-track tape recorder.
Robert’s current and past clients include Sonoton music, Caged Film Ltd, Greater Manchester Police, the NHS, Henshaw’s Society for the Blind, Dance Syndrome, TV Salford, Classical Revolution, the Edinburgh String Quartet, and Manchester University to name a few.
Robert has a Master’s Degree with distinction in composition, a 1st class BA (Hons) Popular Music & Recording degree from the University of Salford and currently holds the position of Lecturer of BA(hons) Composition & Music Production at Futureworks School of Media & Music in Salford, teaching undergrad students how to make an absolute racket.
His weapons of choice are the piano, synthesiser, guitar, voice, microphone, sampler, objects and things, other assorted studio based noise machines, oh, and red wine.
Robert is the co-founder of Manipulated Acoustics, alongside Dr Neil Bruce, and both have an obsession with interfering with sounds and recording bodily noises and laughing about the results to pass the time as they are both still about 10 years old mentally.
