Since 1991, British artist Scanner (Robin Rimbaud) has been intensely active in sonic art, producing concerts, installations and recordings, connecting a bewilderingly diverse array of genres. His work traverses the experimental terrain between sound, space and image, creating absorbing, multi-layered sound pieces that twist technology in unconventional ways. He scored the hit musical comedy Kirikou & Karaba (2007) and Narnia ballet (2015) based on the popular children’s book, the re-opening of the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam in 2012 and in 2016 permanently installed his Water Drops installation at Rijeka Airport Croatia. His work Salles des Departs is permanently installed in a working morgue in Paris.
Committed to working with cutting edge practitioners, he has collaborated with Bryan Ferry, Wayne McGregor, Mike Kelley, Michael Nyman, Steve McQueen, Laurie Anderson and Hussein Chalayan.
Scanner performs as part of the Pomperipossa Records showcase at Norbergfestival 2017. Pomperipossa Records is an experimental record label owned by Anna von Hausswolff and run by Anna von Hausswolff and Laura Lee De La Vega. Their focus lies in finding and releasing hidden gems from the forgotten world of pure musical expression, and their showcase at Norbergfestival a glimpse into this magical land.
