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(Guitarist (unemployed), Novelist (unpublished), Composer (unreleased) & Human Being (undaunted))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

The first draft of my novel, Time & Hope & Elephants is almost complete, and will hopefully be published  in 2020. Also in 2020  I plan to start gigging again with a new band--Stripe--which will play a rock/rock-blues tribute to Gary Moore. 

Thanks for visiting,
