J.R. Robinson
jrrobinson

J.R. Robinson is a Chicago-based sound artist who works under the name Wrekmeister Harmonies. He has exhibited his ambient tonefields in numerous international institutions including the Museum of Modern Art, the J.Paul Getty Museum, the Guggenheim, and the Centre Pompidou. For the MCA’s Face the Strange series, Robinson screens and conducts a live score to his video You’ve Always Meant So Much To Me. Inspired by minimalist and structuralist filmmakers, Robinson’s video is a highly meditative and starkly beautiful work that juxtaposes various locations in Tasmania, Detroit, Joshua Tree and Brooklyn. Sonically, this version of Wrekmeister Harmonies explores the darkest corners of ambient black metal. The renowned artists joining Robinson for this performance include Jef Whitehead (Leviathan), Jaime Fennelly (Mind Over Mirrors), Bruce Lamont (Yakuza), Sanford Parker (Minsk), Stavros Giannopolous (The Atlas Moth) and Mark Solotroff (Anatomy of Habit) as well as a string section and harpist.
