Scanner - British artist Robin Rimbaud traverses the experimental terrain between sound, space, image and form, creating absorbing, multi-layered sound pieces that twist technology in unconventional ways

As well as producing compositions and audio CDs, his diverse body of work includes soundtracks for films, performances, radio, and site-specific intermedia installations. He has performed and created works in many of the world’s most prestigious spaces including SFMOMA USA, Hayward Gallery London, Pompidou Centre Paris, Kunsthalle Vienna, Hanoi Opera House Vietnam, Bolshoi Theatre Moscow, Tate Modern London and the Royal Opera House London.

He doesn't drink alcohol, tea, coffee, smoke or watch TV but he does have an addiction to fresh bread and milk, and has kept a diary every day since he was 12 years old, never missing a daily entry.
