PETER MANNING ROBINSON IS A PIANIST AND AN EMMY AND MULTIPLE BMI AWARD WINNING COMPOSER
Performing live with his newly created Refractor Piano ™, Peter plays a new style of music called “Refracted Music”. Without prerecorded tracks, triggered samples, external sounds or MIDI instruments, he creates innovative music that combines classical and jazz composition and improvisation and is acoustically refracted during live performances to create a transcendent musical experience.
He has performed and recorded with such jazz greats as Ernie Watts, Phil Woods, and Freddie Hubbard and composed for Film and TV (credits include: “Without A Trace, “The Crow”).
His orchestral works have been recorded by members of The London Philharmonic MusicaNova, and the Los Angeles Chamber Orchestra.
His solo work has been described as:
"Brilliant" by Michael Cuscuna of Record World magazine
"an alchemist's experiment" and "futuristic, mystical" by Philippe Oreille of Dauphine France
Phil Cohen, director of Advanced performance Studies at Concordia University wrote: "Some of the most original music since Olivier Messiaen. The listener is assaulted, disturbed, enveloped, given new life".
Titus Levi of Contemporary Keyboard commented, "With Lisztian abandon, Robinson is obviously at home in free-form atonal music while maintaining both his classical and his jazz roots".
