Grapefruit Sound Lab: Refreshing, Uniquely Satisfying,Timeless...Robert C. Cotnoir of Grapefruit Sound Lab believes that a mix of music or sound should be refreshing, uniquely satisfying, clean, and unencumbered as in flavor. The founder of Grapefruit Sound Lab credits his intellectual and creative curiosity of all things musical, theatrical and cinematic to his parents Bonnell Marie and Robert Cotnoir, and to his late childhood friend, Brandie Barrie Weston. During his youth, Bobby was drawn to the sound of Walter Murphy's "A Fifth of Beethoven", and his father quickly picked up on this by giving him the original Beethoven's Fifth Symphony on LP. One of Bobby's first motion picture experiences was, thankfully, to be taken at age nine to the local cinema to see "Midnight Express" where he instantly began to develop his adult sensibilities toward motion picture and theatrical story telling, with the added bonus of being simultaneously exposed to Georgio Moroder's virtuoso synthesizer programming and film scoring. By age fifteen, his mother brought home Yazoo's "Upstairs atEric's" and he learned at that very moment to appreciate the new sound beginning to take hold of popular music of the 1980's. Having grown up in the New York City semi-suburb of Mount Vernon, Bobby was thankfully exposed to the genuine diversity the area had to offer, and in middle school, Bobby's love of all things disco and electro was born.At school, one of Bobby's closest childhood friends, Brandie Weston, a natural and subtle talent, drew him to his creative side. Together, Bobby & Brandie would draw, rhyme, sing, harmonize, satirize, perform, create, re-create, laugh and cry. All of Bobby's creative endeavors are dedicated to her memory.When not producing for Grapefruit Sound Lab, Bobby works as one of New York City's top motion picture music editors.Grapefruit Sound Lab is always evolving, and credits the stellar contributions of fellow artists K. Shawn Muldoon, Philip J. Caporaso, Jr., Robert Dombrower, Alexandra Madden, and Jonathan Ashford.
