Robert Rich

Although his music is often consigned to the new age bins of record stores and the bulk of his work has been released on labels more closely associated with that classification, Robert Rich's solo and collaborative recordings have proven extremely influential on a range of new-school ambient and experimental artists. His association with older space music pioneers such as Steve Roach, Kevin Braheny, and Michael Stearns also makes him one of the few of that generation to have interfaced creatively with the new wave of experimental electronic composers.

A California native, Rich began experimenting with electronics in the late '70s before attending Stanford University, where he completed a degree in psychology. While at Stanford, Rich's involvement in the university's prestigious Center for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics expanded his interest in electronic composition, as well as bringing him in contact with a wide range of nontraditional, non-Western musical ideas. Rich's performance of several all-night "sleep concerts" during this period also helped solidify an aesthetic focus on psychoacoustics, perceptible in early recordings such as Geometry and Trances/Drones.

Rich's more mature works such as Rainforest and Propagation have sought to combine that interest with more recognizable electro-acoustical elements (Rich plays a wide range of instruments, from synths and effects racks to hand drums and flute), but the influence of digital sound manipulation has also moved increasingly to the fore. Inspired by the more textural works of artists like SPK and Throbbing Gristle, Rich's interest in the edgier side of electronic composition has also earned him a reputation among fans of gothic, industrial, and dark ambient, made most obvious by his collaboration in 1995 with Brian Williams of Lustmord. In addition to his more ambient-leaning works, Rich also plays in the experimental pop band Amoeba. He is also a scholar of just intonation, writing regularly on the topic and co-authoring the software program JICalc. He released Inner Landscapes in 1999 and Humidity: Three Concerts a year later. ~ Sean Cooper, Rovi

I love this sound
Yes, His music is a pure state-of-bei n g
Physical dissolution, music as pure state-of-bei n g .
Sounds like what goes on in the Devil's head when he takes a shower.
Every morning I play music. My cat likes to lay down next to the speakers and adsorb the follow. This music will surround your soul
Held in a dream like a drop of water falling, what would illusion be like with out the music of the spheres.. In the huge vast blackness of nothingness, there is clear light. This clear light the fire and the darkness cannot overcome it. You can learn this from this music.

Along with Vangelis, Jon Anderson, Jonn Serrie, Steve Roach and others, Robert Rich's music has provided some of the most haunting, mysterious background music for my spiritual studies as well as added inspiration to pursue my own music career. This stuff is what the alchemists once called "primae materiae", or 'first material,' for Robert Rich's music is the sort of music where you dig deep to explore what it means to transform your soul...

love this.. shadow line electric ladder
I am a big fan of Robert Rich and Pandora has exposed a lot more of his music to me, which I'm quite happy about. I'm curious why his album "Propagation " is not in the discography though, it is one of my favorites.
this guy sucks symbolics is just a skin flute player
this man understands the meaning of objective art and even if you are not paying particular attention to the sounds of his musical offerings you will be reached on other levels of your phsyche ...and feel centered , focused ,aligned w the etherial substances of the cosmos...thi s man truely understands the purpose of the allegory. listen please and you to will know what i have found to be true....this mans higher art always leaving you better than it found you !
Incredible for sure!
This guy's stuff is unbelievably good.
My favorite of his works is Tracery on Gaudi,
Love it.
Yes, good stuff. If you like space music, check out John Serrie - he's the best I've ever heard and his masterpieces were composed for planetariums around the world. He lives in Atlanta, GA, last I heard.

Heard this on the Universe Sampler 92'. One my most favorite songs, also aired on a low power AM radio station on 540 kHz and alse 515 kHz. I am planning on buyin g the CD and the universe sampler. This is good for astronomers who like music about space.
