... hypnotic rhythms inspired by the vastness of the Australian
Robert Lloyd's brightly coloured dances for keyboards and percussion are an exciting synthesis of shimmerring vibraphones and marimbas, melodic drumming and percussive pianos weaving together to create a genuine cross-cultural intercourse of American minimalist and Balinese gamelan music.
Lloyd's music finds its poetry in the combining, recombining, reconstructing and deconstructing of complex rhythms. 'Nullarbor' is a dance work inspired by the vastness of the Nullarbor desert. There is a strong relation between the topography of the Nullarbor and Lloyd's scores, with their seemless rhythms and a sense of endlessness and isolation.
