Scanner

Real Name:
Robin Rimbaud
Profile:
With his work as Scanner, Robin Rimbaud implicates himself in processes of surveillance, engendering access to both technology and language and the power games of voyeurism. Dubbed a "telephone terrorist," Rimbaud is a techno-data agitator whose scavenging of the electronic communication highways provides the raw materials for his aural collages of electronic music and "found" conversations. Musician, writer, media critic, a minimalist anti-hero, and host of the monthly digital club, the Electronic Lounge, at the ICA in London since 1994, he is currently at work on a variety of projects. In 1996 he completed a lecture/performance tour of Australia at the invitation of Australian Network for Art & Technology. 1997 took him all around Europe and the USA, composing the soundtrack to the Delta ballet at the Paris Opera House, touring the USA with DJ Spooky and performing with 100 violinists alongside Laurie Anderson. 1998 brought sound work on Bryan Ferry’s new album, production work for the American band Combustible Edison, a Fellowship in Sound at John Moore’s University in Liverpool, collaborations with visual artist Mike Kelly and composer Charlemagne Palestine and a sound bus tour around London entitled Surface Noise.
