ROB ASTOR

Listening to the music of ROB ASTOR is like listening to Instrumental Science Fiction. The titles of his albums (MARSTROPOLIS, BEYOND MARSTROPOLIS, RAHU, AD ASTRA, and BELLATRIX'S MUSIC BOX to name a few) and the tracks on them ("Swimming Between Galaxies", "Canopusopolis Carina", "Holographic Nightclub [Dance Of The Boytaurs]", "Tropic Of Antarctica", "Forest Of The Black Moon", "Flight In Ursa Minor", "Chocotopia", "Life On Europa", "Six Moons Of Pluto", "Earth Twin & Earth Parallel", "Tiamat", "Pluto - Bringer Of Change", "Stairway To The Fifth Dimension", "Seduction Of The Minotaur") create instantaneous vivid mental imagery demanding musical explanation and interpretation.

Combining elements of New Age, Ambient, Classical, Electronic, Rock & Roll, Video Game Soundtrack, and New Wave, ROB ASTOR successfully melds the sounds of musical legends (Tangerine Dream, Spencer Nilsen, James Horner, John Williams, Moby, Erik Norlander, Electric Light Orchestra, Duran Duran, Norm Orenstein, Vangelis, Mars Lasar, David Arkenstone) into an sonic tapestry of his own design. Every track comes alive with unique vitality, steering clear of conformity and accepted rules to break ground in unexplored territory. With every new release, ROB ASTOR creates a soundscape story. Strap yourself in. ROB ASTOR's music is all about the unforgettable journey.
