    Mr. Robert Slap ~ Composer, Multi-instrumentalist, Engineer & Producer

    in Radio

    Composer, multi-instrumentalist, engineer and producer, Robert Slap is a native of Detroit, Michigan. His music spans a wide spectrum of styles that include blues, rock, new age, jazz and film music. Born August 24, 1951, Slap grew up in the working class communities of Hamtramck and Roseville, learning to play trumpet at the age of 10. He played in his school concert and marching bands, and also performed with several drum and bugle corps. The classical training he received would benefit him later in life when pursuing a career as a music composer. By age 12, Robert’s interests were dominated by playing guitar (self taught) and tinkering with electronic equipment, radios, speakers, etc. Little did he know that these “hobbies” would determine the course of his life.His philosophy is, "Music is made to generate emotional response; life is a tapestry of ever-changing moods, colors, textures, and emotion. It reflects life and touches our souls' strings, pulling feelings out with passion into the open. It is the only medium through which I can truly express my innermost feelings."
