Brad Robin is a composer, pianist/keyboardist, improvisor, computer programmer, and creator of new opera, electroacoustic multimedia works, and works for instruments and computer.
Often while merging media into the world of theater, dance, and video, his music produces visceral experiences integrating musical and naturally occurring sounds and images, creating fabrics of sound, both natural and imagined, streams of water and glass, striking and scraping of objects earthen, metallic, and wooden, natural and electronic air. His music swirls, bites, and caresses, creating an immersive experience for performers and audience.
His music has been performed at national and international festivals including the International Computer Music Conference (ICMC), SEAMUS, and the New York City Electroacoustic Music Festival, Ecos Urbanos (MX). His recent work Spread for piano and live electronics received 2nd place in the Golden Key National Piano Composition Competition, will be performed in Vienna at the awards ceremony and Electronic Music Midwest, and appears RMN Classical's Call of Piano Works 2020. His live piano improvisations album, Release, is available through Naxos on the Centaur label.
He holds a doctorate in composition from the University of North Texas, and master’s degrees in composition and sound art from DePaul and Northwestern Universities, respectively, and currently teaches at both.
