"Robin Fox is a Melbourne based sound and visual artist currently working with live digital media in improvised, composed and installation settings.

He creates audio-visual works for the cathode ray oscilloscope, which have been released on the DVD Backscatter (Synaesthesia Records). The DVD has screened at the Rotterdam International Film Festival; Mittwoschule (Berlin); 8th International New Media Arts Festival (Riga) and TRANSIT Festival (Switzerland).

Live audiovisual performances have taken place across Europe including appearances at the Netmage Festival (Bologna); Wien Modern Festival (Vienna); Noise and Glamour Festival (Moscow) and Transacoustic Festival (Auckland). This work, in constant development, is currently being realised with a high-powered, audio controlled laser system with recent performances at the Institute for Modern Art (Brisbane); NIME06 (Paris); Wellington International Jazz Festival (New Zealand); Totally Huge New Music Festival (Perth); October Contemporary Festival (Hong Kong).

A major European tour took place in May/June 2007 with laser based presentations at Musique Action Festival (Nancy, France); VENN Festival (Bristol, UK); Music Genera Festival (Szczesin, Poland) and Neia Musik Festival (Mulhouse, France) among numerous other appearances. His recent installation work Volta has featured at the RoslynOxley9 Gallery and Orange Regional Art Gallery in 2006 and in 2007 featured at the Asian Art Biennale (Tapei).

Musically, he has performed with some of the world’s leading improvisers including Jon Rose, Tony Buck, Oren Ambarchi, Lasse Marhaug, Jerome Noetinger, Clayton Thomas (Album Substation released by Room40, 2005), Erkki Veltheim, Natasha Anderson and Sean Baxter among many others and has an ongoing collaborative duo with composer/performer Anthony Pateras. This duo is documented on Coagulate released through Synaesthesia in 2003 and Flux Compendium released on eMego in 2006. He is also a member of Beta-erko, a quartet recently released on Berlin based Quecksilber label.

Fox is a regular performer and speaker at festivals around Australia (What is Music, Liquid Architecture, Electrofringe, SOOB, NowNOW, Big Day Out) and performs regularly across Europe and Asia."
