Robert Farrugia (born, 30th November 1994) is an Ambient/ Experimental/ Neo-classical artist from Mosta, Malta. At an early age he started piano and music theory lessons focusing mainly on classical music. Besides being a full-time university student, Robert still writes music in his free time, and recently graduated with a degree in Music Theory from the London College of Music. A self taught-guitarist, with a certain minimalist approach when it comes to composing/performing, he is also the guitarist of Maltese post-rock band “Shouting at Echoes.”
Robert’s work is mainly influenced by the styles of Hammock, Sigur Rós, Stars of the Lid and Brian Eno. His works are comprised mainly of vast soundscapes integrated with piano tracks and voice-over samples.
All of Robert material is completely home recorded. One can see that a minimalistic approach in his music is certainly prominent, ultimately creating these rather soothing and extensive soundscapes.
