From neurobiology to cochlear implants, from analog synthesizers to audio controlled lasers, Robin Fox’s work knows no boundaries and no borders. He works across the spectrum from live interactive computer music performance to the creation of synaesthetic audio-visual environments.

He’s made soundtracks and video/light works for numerous dance companies, has exhibited large-scale photographic works and recently conducted a residency with the Bionic Ear Institute in Melbourne. Currently Robin Fox is working on a giant Theremin style public interactive instrument installation.

Far from a simple description of his practice Fox’s artist talk serves to contextualize his work through the lens of synaesthesia, audible and visible electrical signal equivalence and the history of electronic and visual musics.

Synesthesia and Netaudio London present Robin Fox live, alongside Sally Golding and Tom James Scott at Cafe OTO on  Sunday, 16 September 2012, 8pm.
