in 1997 rob walmart was found wandering the streets of düsseldorf, no parents, no paperwork...

it was a problem again and again with the cops, caught, as he repeatedly would be, climbing into people's houses, sneaking into their basements to play their keyboards. no one ever knew what he did, what he ate, where he slept.

in 1999 he was taken and put in a home for refugees and for a while stayed there until they released him under his own recognizance, though with several documented intractables. one was that he refused to speak. another was, when caught again, as he inevitably would be, climbing into the rec center to play their keyboards, it was never with identification, or paperwork of any kind.

when he was released this continued to be a problem for him, sneaking into people's houses, climbing in their windows to play their keyboards. after a while the cops decided, “why bother with him anymore? let him do his thing.” it's not a problem. people love it. it's beautiful.

after a few days he would leave and go back to his wanderings. since then rob has been wandering around the streets of portland, going in and out of windows, playing their keyboards. he has no identification, no paperwork, no memory of anything before the keyboard session began. there was nothing, and then there was the keyboard.
