Biography

Robin Barstow aka. “Sky” is British blood, born and razed in the mysterious fjordscapes of Malvik, Norway. Building electronics in the shape of midi controllers and aura sensors by night and sequencing computer music by day is the style of this shaman of art. He started out in 2009 with the album “It’s Circular”, released digitally on peppermillrecords.com. It received a fair amount of exposure online and was rated by Beat magazine editor Thomas Raukamp as one of top 5 Creative Commons releases. In the time following the release he played concerts regularly, accompanied by electronica/IDM nutcase Daniel Lacey-McDermott aka. Captain Credible. In 2010 he released a small digital release called “Electronic Horse” which they added to their live show. In 2009 he was also rated by NRK p3 (Norwegian state radio) as week 20’s untouched artist and received airplay through their program on P3 radio. He is inspired by Electronica in the fashion of Aphex Twin and Clark (Chris Clark), but also heavily inspired by game music of the 80’s and 90’s (Commodore 64, Atari, Amiga, ADLIB). His live shows are also inspired visually by those computer systems mentioned.
