Robin Coudert (born 15 May 1978), also known by his stage name ROB, is a French pop/rock musician, singer-songwriter, producer and film score composer.[1]

Life and career[edit]

Born in Caen, Robin Coudert, alias ROB, is a musician, author, singer, composer, producer. He began learning music with the classical trumpet at the age of 8, and continued his instruction with the synthesizer and the piano, and thus created his first electronic compositions at the age of 10.

Rob discovered performing with a heavy-metal band at 14, then a funk band at 16.

Along with his musical experiences, he entered the Beaux-Arts in Paris in 1996, where he joined the studio of the painter Vladimir Velickovic.

However, it was the Source label that spotted Rob, presented by his friends from the band Phoenix. In 1998, he participated in the Source Rocks compilation, from which his first EP, "Musique pour un enfant jouet", was extracted. In 2001, Source released his first album "Don't Kill", followed by "Satyred Love" in 2002. During the production of these, he met the sound engineer Jack Lahana, with whom he continued for all of his works.

Rob then began a series of collaborations: with Sébastien Tellier or Phoenix, whom he will accompany on stage on keyboards and percussion since then.

He then produced / directed albums for various artists, Melissa Mars (2007), Zaza Fournier (2008 and 2011), Alizée (2010), Adanowsky (2010) or Leon Larregui (2016)…

In 2010, with the Institubes label, he created the “Dodecalogue” project, a series of 12 instrumental discs devoted to the Gospels. The work will be left unfinished in the sixth volume with the closing of Institubes.

His cinematographic experience began in 2005 with the short film "Pink Cowboy Boots" by Maria Larrea, which he married that same year, and has been actively pursued since 2010.

Rob creates the original music for "Belle Épine" by Rebecca Zlotowski (2010), "Populaire" by Régis Roinsard (2012) nominated for the Césars for best original music, "Maniac" by Franck Khalfoun (2012), "Made In France" by Nicolas Boukhrief (2015), “Revenge” by Coralie Fargeat (2018)… In 2015 he began his collaboration with Éric Rochant on “Le Bureau des Légendes”, for which he created the original music for the five seasons, until 2020.

His career continues to continue in cinema, series and documentaries with more than 30 original music composed to date.

The Parisian studio Hippocampus, created with Jack Lahana, houses all of his productions.
