One World, One Voice

A ground-breaking project in 1990 for the BBC with Kevin Godley, 'One World, One Voice', assembled 300 musicians worldwide to create the first global composition for mankind. In the form of a musical chain-letter, it travelled the world with Hine improvising its form on the fly. The grand spectacle was ultimately seen by more than 200,000,000 people in 26 countries on the same night!

Leader of Technology

As a leader rather than a follower when it comes to technology, Rupert pioneered electronic musical instrument interfaces with the fledgling MIDI. Invited by Apple in the 90s to help demonstrate the powers of their ground-breaking software engines to the music-world's creative thinkers, Rupert has consistently championed the incorporation of the digital environment into art and creativity. In October 2011 tech writer, entrepreneur (and fan) Alan Graham contacted  Rupert from California. After several months of exchanging news and views on planet earth, Alan announced that he would be moving to London, England, accompanying his wife's change of location with Apple computers. This music-loving tech guy and this tech-loving music guy pretty soon hit it off with regard to new ideas for young artists (if not all artists) to cultivate their musical world via the online community. This notion became REBOOT and, after Rupert attended the World Creators' Summit in Washington in 2013, became the start of an initiative in 2013 called One-Click Licence.
