At 25, Robert Harder owned a studio, a production company and a pro audio equipment company in Germany. In 1997 he moved his production facility to Shoreditch, the cutting edge part of East London.
Incrementally he and his work merged into this thriving scene. He collaborated closely with up and coming artists: Whitey, Babyshambles, Polar Bear, Ali Love and Acoustic Ladyland, putting together the early building blocks.
A Grammy for David Byrne & Brian Eno’s “Everything That Happens Will Happen Today” and a Mercury Prize for Polar Bear’s “Dim Lit” constitute some of the awards for albums he has worked on.
Recent projects are a VR recording with Anderson Paak through Q-department NYC with Robert Strombergs/Stephen Spielbergs VRC in LA. An album with Neneh Cherry together with the Free Jazz formation The Thing, a recorded live concert of Thurston Moore and Mats Gustafsson. Currently he is working on a Pan-European holographic Symphony project with contemporary composer Adam Donen and a classical 360 record with Anna Zassimova (piano).
Some of his work featured on Super Bowl half-time ads and on major TV series ranging from Breaking Bad to The Sopranos and on catwalk shows from Dior to Carl Lagerfeld.
