Rick Reed is a self-taught composer and electronic improviser whose “artistic vision and execution has a remarkable and unhurried focus & poetry. His live sound and multimedia performances are constantly evolving yet grounded in his clear sensibility. A high bar to set and a treat to observe unfold.” (Austin Chronicle, 20 May 2016) Since the mid 1990s, Rick Reed has released several LPs and CDs on labels such as Ecstatic Peace, Beta-lactam Ring, Pale Disc Japan and Elevator Bath. The collaborative track between Rick and Tara Reed, ‘Brilliant Flashes’, appears on the split tape Brilliant Flashes/Coalesce the Vapor (Rick Reed/Smokey Emery), released by the label Obsolete Future (2016).
