Weinstein, Robert (  )
Compositor Estadounidense nacido en Nueva York
Robert Weinstein was born in New York into a family of artists and musicians. His grandfather Philip Sklar, was the principle bassist under the great Maestro Arturo Toscanini and The NBC Symphony Orchestra. Raised in this atmosphere Robert inevitably followed and pursued his education at The Eastman School of Music (Gene Bertoncini), The Manhattan School of Music (Sharon Isbin), Ithaca College and York University studying Classical and Jazz guitar (Tuck Andres, Chuck Loeb, John Scofield, Fred Hand), composition (Andy Brick, Edgar Grana), arranging (Don Sebeskey), ethnomusicology, and film.
Over the years that followed Robert collaborated with many filmmakers, dancers, and musicians performing live, recording extensively and creating unique scores for a myriad of projects. Special creative alliances were formed and gave birth to a highly innovative and unique circle of musicians called upon in his work for commissioned scores. Principle members include maverick-Grammy award winning cellist David Darling (Paul Winter Consort, music for Jean Luc Goddard, Wim Wender, Ashes and Snow), master multi-woodwind instrumentalist Paul Butler, and renowned world-percussionist John Marshall.
Collaborations with David Darling include Musical Massage: Balance, Musical Massage: In Tune , and Open Window . Recent collaborations in film include “Sisters” produced and directed by Manuel Lopez, “Downsizing of The God’s” , a Vag’ film produced by jsenko productions, “To Remember Him” a film about Indian Spiritual master Meher Baba produced by Shiva Sawyer for which he created a unique piece composed for tabla and orchestra. . In the spring of 2009 the film, “ Peter Matthiessen: No Boundaries” directed by Jeff Sewald premièred to a sold out audience at Brooklyn Academy of Music (BAM) for which Robert completed a compelling score. The film was broadcast nationally on PBS and has lead to an EMMY nomination and productions on other great literary luminaries. In 2010 Robert contributed to Gothic Storm, the brainchild of British composer Dan Graham with US licensing through Hollywood publisher PSI records. Robert’s compositions are featured on these albums used in major Hollywood productions
