m o u s e t r a p r e p l i c a is the solo project of composer/performer Ryan McRobb, who performs on guitar, laptop, synth guitar, electronics and mandolin. The performances take the format of a solo concert, using the conservatory trained McRobb`s unique usage of the electric guitar, which through electronics manages to encompass the richness, power and vitality of an orchestra.

Ryan draws inspiration from artists such as Arvo Part, Ligeti, Sigur Ros, Merzbow, Frank Zappa, Boards of Canada, The Necks, Bill Frisell, Colleen, John Zorn, traditional Japanese music to name but a few.

mousetrapreplica performances lead the audience through a maze of entranced joy, stark beauty, brutal barrages, quirky humour, dark subtlety, exquisite ambience; a journey which everybody leaves feeling that little bit better.

Ryan McRobb`s composition experience includes writing for film, computer games, big bands, theatre, childrens music, electroacoustic ensembles, multimedia projects involving painters, dancers, electro visual artists and poets.

Ryan is looking for paying composition work of any kind, and is always keen to participate in any interesting music making project, be it in person or online.
