about

A collection of short soundtrack pieces created for animations that don’t exist, hypothetical schools programmes in need of a theme, disturbing children’s serials and whimsical art shows.

Film-makers, feel free to use these pieces as long as you credit me.

Performances, production and engineering by Colin Robinson,
with Michael Linden West (guitar & devices) on "Fragment no.4".

All instruments recorded in Hebden Bridge.
Other sounds found in Sheffield, Cumbria, County Durham, Prague, Greenwich, Cornwall and Hebden Bridge.

"Very 'Scarfolk' - you've nailed all those strange little bits of music that used to be on TV in the nooks and crannies. Before 'marketing' and 'demographics' and all that sort of thing took root TV was clearly full of interesting creative people who no one paid enough attention to. Excellent." - Mark Williamson

"I have it on very loud in my shed, it's jolly good." - Zulu Dalek

"One of my favourites..... a beautiful 3D landscape of sounds....many very atmospheric and dark.......... these puppets aren't to be messed with....... " - Rick Holstead

"Fabulous fabulous stuff" - Craig Manga, Sine FM

"Colin Robinson's stuff is always well worth checking out. This is remarkable." - Richard Sanderson, Linear Obsessional Recordings

"This is absolute pure genius!" - Richard Kemp

"Who could turn This Salty Armada into a series of short movies? Robinson himself obviously. The first frames of "It's fookin' dark down there ..." are a no-brainer. The rest of it could be made by Aardman Studios and Wes Anderson." - Hans Werksman, Here Comes The Flood weblog

"Robinson follows just one rule: there are no rules." - Hans Werksman, Here Comes The Flood weblog

"Ace" - Craig Manga, New Weird Planet radio show
Album included in "Best of the Heap 2016" on New Weird Planet radio show, SineFM.

The album is No.10 in Here Come The Flood's "Best of 2016" album list.

"A one-man musical infinity engine by the name of Colin Robinson, who turns out albums like the world might end tomorrow... “it’s fookin’ dark down there” in the depths of his imagination, which seems to have veered off into a semi-remembered childhood reverie with the inklings of the bogeyman never far away. The playful nature of this album is indicated by its full title, but I would imagine the puppet show referred to would be scripted by Chekov. This is as serious as it is throwaway, a neat juxtaposition." - Roger Trenwith, The Progressive Aspect
