Robert Montoya -- known as Robert M -- has been active in the local music scene for the past two decades as a percussionist, improviser, and sound artist. In recent years, his work has focused on sample-based electronic music, creating complex, subtly evolving soundscapes which can be heard on his eponymous solo release on the Accretions label and in his ensemble projects: Wormhole, with long-time collaborator Marcos Fernandes, and mrlectronic with Lisle Ellis and Fernandes.
