François De Roubaix
François de Roubaix (1939-1975) was a french multi-instrumentalist and composer for commercials, TV series, and about 30 feature-length films. De Roubaix had a home studio which he used a lot for both experimentation and final tracks. He freely combined classical (prerecorded) music with electronic instruments, early synthesizers and rhythm boxes. François de Roubaix died in an diving accident near the Canary Isles in 1975. He received new recognition because he provided 'sample material' for a new generation. Carl Craig remixed him and Robbie Williams' producers sampled him.
