Robert Blatt’s work is rooted in explorations of expanded sonic situations through varying frames and gradations of environment, notation, object, performance, text and tone.

Recent projects include Experiments in the Periphery from 2017, which included realizations of his works in numerous open and private locations across South Florida. In 2017, Much Too Much Noise published his paperback, Beach Bums, part text score, conceptual writing and beach read, which became the focus of a recording project shown at Studio Loos (The Hague/Netherlands, 2017), Post-Paradise (Birmingham/Great Britain, 2017) and Subtropics (Miami Beach, FL/USA, 2016). His work Everybody Peepin’ out They Window When They Hear Me Beatin’ up the Street saw a realization with over fifty cars at MDC Live Arts (Miami, 2016), and his practice of foregrounding the concert/exhibition situation is found in works presented at Keith (Berlin/Germany, 2017), Weisslich (Manchester and London/Great Britain, 2017) and A1LabArts (Knoxville, TN/USA 2016). Robert Blatt has been supported with residencies from Jack Straw New Media Gallery and GEMAK (The Hague/Netherlands).

He runs Inlets Foundation for Experimental Practices, is a member of The New Fordist Organization and was co-founder of the radical composers collective Acid Police Noise Ensemble. He received a Master of Music from the Royal Conservatory of The Hague from 2008 to 2010 and a Bachelor of Music from the University of Washington from 2002 to 2006.
