Michael Robinson brings his Indian raga-styled compositions into being using the Meruvina, in essence a software-hardware mix that enables him to perform his fully notated scores in real time; in a typical Robinson work, sound samples of acoustic instruments from multiple world cultures appear in long-form settings of powerfully hypnotic character. Michael was born in Manhattan at French Hospital, and grew up in Borough Park (Brooklyn), North Merrick (Long Island), and Wantagh (Long Island), graduating from Wantagh High. He received a BM in Composition from Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam, and also studied at CalArts and Tanglewood. Robinson's composition teachers have included Steve Reich, John Cage, David Lewin, Morton Feldman, Salvatore Martirano, Mel Powell, and Leonard Stein
