Welcome to the Website of ROB THORPE

(Guitarist (unemployed), Novelist (unpublished), Composer (unreleased) & Human Being (undaunted))


This is the website of Rob Thorpe: composer, guitarist, writer & dreamer.

My album, The Other Planets--a suite of original, mainly orchestral music inspired by Holst's The Planets, filmmusic & the planets of science-fiction films, books & TV shows is available now:

On this site you will find a link to a blog about the music, details of the gear used to write and record it, plus album art including 'virtual CD' liner notes.

As well as The Other Planets, my YouTube and SoundCloud channels also include additional music tracks I have written and/or arranged, such as:

The first draft of my first novel, called Time & Hope & Elephants is almost complete, and will hopefully be published  in 2020.

Finally, in 2020  I plan to start gigging again as guitarist for a new band--Stripe--which will play a rock/rock-blues tribute to guitar heroes Gary Moore, (Dr) Brian May of Queen and more. 

Thanks for visiting,
