Biography: Robert Rich - Lia Moskow

Robert Rich began building his own analog synthesizers in 1976, when he was 13 years old. He later studied computer music at Stanford's CCRMA while earning a degree in Psychology. His all-night Sleep Concerts, first performed in 1982 for a sleeping audience at Stanford, have become legendary around the San Francisco area. He has since performed throughout Europe and North America. In 1996 he revived his all-night concert format, playing Sleep Concerts for live and radio audiences across the U.S. during a three month tour, which also included evening concerts of his more active, rhythmic music. Since 1982, Rich has released numerous influential and critically acclaimed albums, ranging from early slow motion works like Trances/Drones (1983) to the electro-acoustic world music of Rainforest (1989) and Propagation (1994). Rich's collaborators have included Steve Roach, Lustmord, David Torn, Alio Die, Lisa Moskow, Vidna Obmana and Forrest Fang. Rich frequently contributes pieces to multi-artist compilations, many of which have been collected on his solo albums A Troubled Resting Place (1996) and Below Zero (1998). He also records with his group, Amoeba, exploring atmospheric songcraft on their CD Watchful (1997). Along with his recordings, Rich has written technical articles on electronic music and microtonality for such publications as Electronic Musician, Keyboard and Music Technology. He has also designed sounds for electronic instrument manufacturers, written software for composers who work in just intonation and helped develop a microtuning specification for synthesizers, which has been accepted as an industry standard.
