Robert also recently collaborated with singer/songwriter Danny Michel to release KHLEBNIKOV, an album of music written aboard a Russian icebreaker ship crossing the Northern Passage, featuring astronaut Chris Hadfield.

The diversity of Robert's music can be attributed in part to his years of experience as a performer of musical styles ranging from avant-garde and classical to jazz and rock.

Mr. Carli has collaborated on numerous projects with The Art Of Time Ensemble, including two recordings and a composition based on prose by Michael Ondaatje, which premiered with the author as narrator.
