Great tuba player and composer Robin Hayward, born in Brighton, England in 1969, has been based in Berlin since 1998.His astounding technical mastery and musicality are expressed through the perfect and balanced control and through the sound articulation that make listening a pure experience.Hayward plays tuba in a very easy way but with a strong impact. These are the elements that caracterize his musical aesthetic.He has radically extended the tuba’s potential both in the areas of noise and microtonality, and his compositions for other instruments reflect a similar medium-specific approach. As an interpreter his specific playing ability has been utilized by leading composers such as Alvin Lucier and Christian Wolff. He has toured extensively both solo and in collaboration. His research to date has been documented in his solo CD Valve Division and numerous collaborative releases. Active in many contemporary music ensembles including Phosphor, and Kammerensemble Neue Musik Berlin, in 2005 he founded Zinc & Copperworks for continued research into brass instruments.
