Michael Robinson (b. 1977, Detroit, MI) has a diverse creative history spanning both still and time-based media. At an early age he held simultaneous interests in fiction, poetry and illustration, which later coalesced in the synthesis of experimental animation and short film. This led to explorations purely in realms of light, abstraction, texture and colour--interfacing with imagery in site-specific settings to live music; a diametric approach to working with frame by frame minutiae. He has collaborated with Ant Yeti Ant, µllet áp, Thinking Machines, Solar Bears, Bibio, Ronika, and The Go! Team in the forms of music video/visual accompaniment across a variety of mediums, tools, and techniques. His work has been featured by the Underground Film Journal, Warp Records, Planet Mu, The Creators Project, Resident Advisor, Pitchfork, XLRR8R, Buzzfeed, Stereogum, Fact Magazine, Gorilla Vs. Bear, Nialer9, Tiny Mix Tapes, The Line Of Best Fit, Dummy Magazine, Dangerous Minds, Ad Hoc, Death and Taxes, and has been screened by the MicroCineFest, the Boston Underground Film Festival, the Maryland Film Festival and the Echo Park Film Center. He has been a core member of Moviate since 2006.
