(Currently in a 2013 "Winter Hibernation" in Vail, Colorado from the heat of the Caribbean) Former US Marine Pilot and one of the Ableton Master Artists, Robert Foster is best known for developing in a "Neoteric Ambient" style, while providing weekly mix sets of Dance, House and Electro from around the globe on his live show, "Digitized Weekly."
"For every play I receive on my SoundCloud of a Digitized Weekly episode this year, I am going to spend a dollar towards helping a kid learn how to make music. For every live gig, all profit beyond the overhead costs of the show are going to an inner city grant, established by Berklee in Boston, Mass. You read it right. Clicking play, jamming to my show for 2 hours and BAM you've helped make the world just a bit better. I am also going to try to have my staff figure out how to get these shows on YouTube, so we can expand the idea of free music and goodwill."
Robert Foster also ghost writes and consults for movie scores and electronic music in his free time -- recent projects are heard globally in major hotel chain and automobile advertising, as well as college and Hollywood films.
"This journey with music has already taken me on tours of the Caribbean, Brazil, and North America. I was scooped up from Tiki Island and moved to Puerto Rico for a residency, performing my 'Black Gloves' show and 'Digitized Weekly'. It is a fantastic and wonderful celebration; come along and join in!"
"My shows are designed to give you the experience of being with me at the venue and enjoying the great music, no matter where you are. You won't need special wristbands, plane tickets, hotels, crowds or even money to jam along with us. I am always brainstorming the next way to make sharing the show even better, through technology."
"I deeply enjoy the Caribbean and living on the concept of 'Island Time', but I am still a Southern California kid through and through. I love a good dinner, I love my friends, I love my family, most of all, I love music and the power it contains to heal, motivate and create happiness in life."
"I have been involved in playing various instruments all my life, no matter where it took me - from student to US Marine and back again. My passion for technology has naturally paired with my love for music - and here I am - remixing and producing my own flavor of EDM."
"Innovators like Robert Miles, BT, Paul Oakenfold and Kimball Collins have forged the path for awesome music, while software suites like Ableton and Pro Tools have given us the vehicles. All we need to do now is follow our hearts, get in and drive to our dreams. I look forward to seeing you out there!"
