Robert Rich | New York | Autumn Equinox
September 22nd, 2018
Across four decades and over 40 albums, Robert Rich has helped define several genres of ambient music, yet his music remains hard to categorize. Part of his unique sound comes from using home-made 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).
