Robin Storey was born in 1955 in Cumbria, England. While studying fine arts at Sunderland University, he began pursuing a long-held interest in sound manipulation by taking classes in electronic and experimental composition, additionally joining with friends to perform the works of Karlheinz Stockhausen (a key influence, as were the Krautrock bands of the early 1970s). In 1979 Storey formed the pioneering industrial group :zoviet*france:, remaining a member until 1992; the year previous, Storey issued the first Rapoon album, Dream Circle, its entrancing fusion of Indian ragas, African rhythms and experimental textures anticipating the evocative soundscapes of the many r...eleases to follow. Also a noted visual artist, painter and animator, Storey's work was exhibited throughout the world, collections include the Berlin Museum of Modern Art and The Pushkin Museum Moscow.
Pas Musique emerged from Brooklyn, New York in 1995 as a solo project of founder Robert L. Pepper and has since gone through many variations of experimental, electronic iterations. In 2018, Pas Musique remain as a four piece consisting of Jon V Worthley, Michael Durek, Jesse Fairbairn, and Robert Pepper, pursuing the musical elements of krautrock with electronic music undertones.
Pas Musique have collaborated with many great musicians which include Faust, Rapoon, ZEV, Philippe Petit, HATI, Chester Hawkins, and many more. Pas Musique have performed in 17 countries and all throughout the United States. Sound and video installations have also included Chile and the United States. Pas Musique also curates events in New York such as Experi-MENTAL nights, Ambient-Chaos nights and the Experi-MENTAL Festival once a year.
An intense hybrid of word and sound, a punk ethic colliding with dark noise loops and experiments.
