Robert McFadden

Robert McFadden has been writing and performing music since the late 1970’s. Originally trained as a visual artist, Robert developed his music as part of a multidisciplinary practice including installation, digital media, and performance art. Early projects give a clue to the diversity in Robert’s approach:

  • Sounds on Wednesdays (1978): a free improvisation series hosted by the National Gallery of Canada
  • The Post Barbie Band (1978 - 81): a cocktail of musicians, artists and programmers performing in clubs and art galleries
  • People in the Speakers (1986 - 90): a karaoke/movement ensemble championed by Gay Delorme (Frank Zappa, k.d. laing) as “seriously bent; way hip”.
