Robert Moss studied numerous instruments and orchestral composition. He began his career playing various instruments in bands and as a studio musician. He then moved into production until finally settling down as a screen composer, operating his personal studio. His screen music has been broadcast worldwide in numerous film and television productions. He is now focusing on developing a new approach to music designed to unmask the orchestra in a popular music context, while drawing on cross-cultural Chinese and Western popular music aesthetics. This has resulted in four major works, each a set of songs for voice, string orchestra and additional instruments.
