Robert Mann's Studio

How would you describe your music?

Combining his vast array of influences, Robert Charles Mann pushes the boundaries of music for film, TV and multimedia. With a particular bent toward creating ambiences which include traditional orchestral elements with unusual sounds derived from recording common objects and processing them through a bevy of electronic circuits, the result can be unpredictable yet familiar, troubled or tranquil. This is exemplified by his personal projects such as the ambient Glacier Project, or the live conversions created only of modified and time-stretched wine glasses called Momentums, as well as co-composing with other composers such as Cliff Martinez on films like Espion(s) and Severe Clear among others. This in contrast to working commercially with France Telecom, Ducati and Calvin Klein, makes for a composer who is continually breaking through with new ideas in sounds and music.

What computer and audio hardware do you use?

Logic, Reason, Live on Mac
What software and samples do you use?: EastWest, SAM, VSL, Miroslav, Tonehammer, amongst tons of others and of course my own samples specific to each project.

What would be your dream studio setup?

Solid State Logic SL 4000 board with an arsenal of the best ribbon mics ever made, mega terrabytes of memory and RAM, every guitar every made, a few MacPros with eight cinema displays, 7.1 surround with Golden Acoustics sound panels and a permanent live-in orchestra.
