Robert Pot is born in the place called Nijverdal, a quiet village
in the country of Holland. Since he was 14 he began to develop
a great predilection for symphonic oriented rock music.
Groups like: "Genesis, Yes, Emerson, Lake & Palmer", and later
on "Camel, Asia and UK", became his favorites, in addition to
which Tony Banks, the keyboard player of "Genesis" became his
great inspirer. "Keys" is the keyword in Roberts musical life.
At the age of 16 Robert bought his first keyboard, an organ build by a neighbor.
As a student electronics he soon began to modify the keyboard to develop his own, unique sounds. He realized that synthesizers had a great future and were to create a brand new view of making music. By delivering newspapers and to work as a DJ in local discotheques in his spare time, Robert earned the money he invested in the newest synthesizers and recording equipment.
A few years later he had expanded his equipment at a level of a professional recording-studio, where he started to record his first compositions. In 1980 Robert met Gerto Heupink who also worked with synthesizers and recording-equipment and…Future World Orchestra was born.
With Future World Orchestra or for short F.W.O., in the period from 1982 to 1985, scored several European hits, like: "Desire", "I'm not afraid of the Future", "E.T." and "Roulette".
Also because of the world-wide economic depression in the recording-industry, F.W.O., unfortunately stopped recording together in 1987, although Robert continued with F.W.O., now solo.
Robert, more a studio musician than a live-performer, maintained his effort, to keep writing and recording despite some major setbacks in his personal life. Until now, Robert has developed himself further and now has written many musical works for radio and television productions.
One of Roberts highlights, is his collaboration with Rob and Ferdi Bolland which resulted in the realization of: "Darwin - The Evolution", a CD with an international style. Not in the least because of the collaboration with: Colin Blunstone (Zombies, Allan Parson's Project), Ian Gillan (Deep Purple), (late) Falco (Rock me Amadeus) and Barclay James Harvest and Suzi Quattro.
In 2000 Robert released: "The Hidden Files", an instrumental (synthesizer) album, containing own written and produced tracks, similar to: "Alan Parsons Project", "Vangelis" and "Tangerine Dream".
Beside making music, Robert is a dedicated private pilot. In 2001 he started flight training in Florida (U.S.A.). Now Robert is an "Instrument Rated - Private Pilot" and has accumulated about 200 flying hours and 1500 flightsimulator hours.
