Robin Koek

Robin Koek is a composer, musician and designer of artistic systems from the Netherlands.

Koek’s works explore states wherein acoustic, digital and analog signals intertwine and merge into one body of sound. The origins of his compositions follow a line of research into the acoustic ontology, urban transcription and spatial potential of sound. Koek earned a Bachelor with Honours and a Master of Arts specialised in Sound Design at the Utrecht School of the Arts, Faculty of Music Technology in 2011.

Stemming from a tradition of improvisation, Koek’s tape, live and installation works immerse the audience and construct new realities, manifesting through multi-channel projection, binaural experiences and wavefield synthesis; he has performed at Bimhuis, Rijksmuseum Amsterdam and TodaysArt festival. Koek is an active member of the Soundlings collective, a gathering of international sound professionals, and his current focus is on an ongoing series of sound structures and systems based on city soundscape phonology, electronic processing and scores for instrumental improvisation. These pieces have been performed in Toronto, Viseu, New York, Ohio, Berlin and Amsterdam.
