FOR DIRECTIONS & FURTHER INFORMATION:
hardly needs an introduction to members & trawlers of this forum. No doubt across three decades and over 30 albums, Rich has helped define numerous electronic music genres, be they ambient, dark-ambient, tribal and trance, yet his music remains hard to categorize. Part of his unique sound comes from using homemade acoustic and electronic instruments, microtonal harmonies, computer-based signal processing, chaotic systems and feedback networks.
Rich began building his own analog synthesizers in 1976, when he was 13 years old, and later studied for a year at Stanford’s Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA), releasing his first album, Sunyata
, in 1982. Most of his subsequent recordings came out in Europe until 1989, when Rich began a string of critically acclaimed releases for Fathom/Hearts of Space, including Rainforest
, and Seven Veils
, in addition to the two esteemed collaborations with Steve Roach, Strata
. Rich has also worked with fellow luminaries Alio Die, Brian Lustmord & Ian Boddy, all of which yielded their own particularly fetching & expertly designed topographies.
Live albums such as Calling Down the Sky
and the three-CD set, Humidity
, document the unique improvised flow of his performances. As anyone who has witnessed him on stage over the last 20+years, a live Rich performance is an often stunning sensorium of liquified electronic textures underpinned by multi-kulti rhythms, wind instruments, languid washes of guitar and numerous other exotic acoustics, an experience not to be missed.http://www.robertrich.com
