BLOOMFIELD, NJ, UNITED STATES, May 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — BLOOMFIELD, N.J. – Nye & Company’s Estate Treasures Auction slated for Wednesday, June 5th, will be a diverse sale featuring nearly 700 lots gathered primarily from the tri-state area and includes ceramics, furniture, jewelry and paintings. The auction, starting at 10 am Eastern time, will be held online and in the Nye & Company gallery, located at 20 Beach Street in Bloomfield.

Nye & Company Auctioneers recently launched its new updated website (nyeandcompany.com). It allows clients to bid directly on the site, simplifying and streamlining the process. The site also offers more access to the bidders, with online forms and pre-formatted inquiry forms. Of course, they are still able to use the popular platforms LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com. The full catalog can be viewed now, on the new website. Phone and absentee bids will be accepted.

“This auction includes a diverse collection of furniture,” said John Nye of Nye & Company Auctioneers. “The Continental offerings date back to the 17th century, with fauteuils and case pieces. We also have 18th and 19th century English and American mirrors; Chinese, English and American ceramics made for export and domestic consumption; a wide variety of paintings, from the 17th century to the present time; and a small collection of WWI memorabilia and uniforms.”

Nye added, "One of the most enjoyable aspects of a regional auction house is the wide-ranging consignments one has the privilege of handling from one sale to the next. The idea that we have WWI memorabilia, Mid-Century Modern and fine art alongside fine silver, estate jewelry and traditional antiques makes no two auctions the same and constantly broadens one's knowledge."

The quality of the 17th, 18th and 19th century "traditional antiques" is quite good, Nye remarked. “There are pieces from America, England, Sweden, France, Italy and more. There is a group inherited by the consignor from her grandparents who were dealers in London at the turn of the last century, so the furniture and Chinese ceramics have been off the market for over 100 years.”

A ceramic charger made by Pablo Picasso for Madoura in 1956, titled Visage a la Grille, 16 ½ inches in diameter, edition 50 of 100 and stamped on the reverse “Empreinte Originale de Picasso”, is estimated at $3,000-$5,000 and should realize more. Also, a micro mosaic from the School of Giacomo Raffaelli (Italian, 1753-1836), titled Owl Hunting a Rabbit, has an estimate of $800-$1,200.

An enamel on canvas over panel marked STP, by Lucien E. Smith, labeled, signed and dated (2014) on verso, measuring 45 inches by 56 inches, is expected to finish at $6,000-$8,000; while a German porcelain figure of a tailor on a goat, standing 9 inches tall, should reach $800-$1,200.

Also sold will be a 19th century brown bear automaton, probably French, 17 ½ inches (est. $1,000-$1,500); a 19th century Federal oval giltwood two-light mirror (Albany, N.Y.), with an eagle surmount, 39 inches tall be 30 inches wide (est. $1,000-$2,000); and a New York and New Jersey antique surveyor’s tool mounted in a fitted wood case, signed on the face “Sawyer & Hobby” (est. $800-$1,200).

Modern lots of the furniture category will include a Florence Knoll marble-top and chrome oval table desk, 27 ½ inches tall by 6 feet 6 inches wide by 47 ½ inches deep (est. $800-$1,200); and two Mid-Century Modern Mies Van Der Rohe-style for Knoll Barcelona chairs (est. $400-$600).

Catalog online viewing and pre-bidding is already underway and will continue on up to auction day. Folks can still preview and bid on and during auction day. In-person previews will be held on weekdays, May 28th thru June 5th, and on Sunday, June 2nd, from 10 am to 4 pm Eastern time.

John Nye had a long and fruitful career at Sotheby’s before he and his wife, Kathleen, acquired Dawson’s in 2003 and started Dawson & Nye. With the move to Bloomfield seven years later, they renamed the business to Nye & Company (Auctioneers, Appraisers, Antiques). The firm is nationwide, but the vast bulk of the business comes from trusts and estates in the tri-state area.

National Model 3 cash register, the wooden inlaid model coveted by collectors, in untouched original condition, as featured in the book The Incorruptible Cashier (est. CA$2,500-$3,500).

The two-day, two-session auction will feature over 700 lots, including items of historical interest from world-class makers, many of them Canadian in origin.

A tidal wave of market-fresh collections and individual items of merit. Friday evening includes an old-time gathering of fountain pens. Saturday features the Curt Davidson Pequegnat clock collection.”

— Ethan Miller

NEW HAMBURG, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — A two-day, two-session auction featuring over 700 lots of collector-grade art, clocks, fountain pens, lamps, art glass and many items of historical interest from world-class makers will be held Friday and Saturday, June 7th and 8th, by Miller & Miller Auctions, online and in the gallery at 59 Webster Street in New Hamburg, Ontario, in Canada.

The Friday, June 7th session will highlight vintage and contemporary fountain pens from notable brands such as Parker, Schaeffer, Waterman, Bexley, Conway Stewart, Montblanc and may others – over 150 lots in all. The Saturday, June 8th session will continue with a representative collection of clocks from the Arthur Pequegnat Clock Company, plus many other fine offerings.

Start times are 7 pm on June 7th and 10 am on June 8th (both times Eastern). Online bidding is open now, on LiveAuctioneers.com and Invaluable.com, as well as the Miller & Miller website, at www.millerandmillerauctions.com. Phone (519-662-4800) and absentee bids will be accepted.

Two lots – #430 and 431 – are certain to spark keen bidder interest. Both are Birds of Paradise table lamps made by Handel (Meriden, Conn.). They’re similar: both have a domical 17 ¾ inch diameter shade (signed) in “chipped” and “sand finished” glass, and both are decorated with two exotic birds of paradise amongst blossoming branches (est. $9,000-$12,000 and $6,000-$9,000).

All prices quoted here are in Canadian dollars.

A star of the fine art category is an oil on canvas depiction of a warrior on horseback, with others in the distance behind, by Jozef Brandt (1841-1915), 12 inches by 9 ¼ inches (est. $15,000-$20,000). A complement to that work is a military scene with one cavalry facing the admirer, signed by Dutch artist Jan Hoynck van Papendrecht, 24 inches by 17 inches (est. $6,000-$9,000).

“Out of nowhere this has become one of our most eclectic and exciting sales,” said Ethan Miller of Miller & Miller Auctions, Ltd. “A tidal wave of market-fresh collections and individual items of merit have combined to achieve what bidders will see. Friday evening includes an old-time gathering of fountain pens and Saturday features the Curt Davidson Pequegnat clock collection.”

Pequegnat clocks are as much about an impressive Canadian success story as they are about finely-made timekeepers. Beginning in 1904 the Pequegnat family beat the odds and made finer clocks than most companies in the United States. Curt’s complete and meticulously curated collection of Pequegnat clocks includes every model the firm ever produced, and with variations.

Pequegnat clocks in the auction include a rare “Nelson” tall case clock, one of only a few known, 81 inches tall, with beveled glass door and correct ‘twin dolphins’ door key (est. $3,000-$5,000); and a “Regulator #1” wall clock, Pequegnat’s only weight-driven wall clock and arguably the company’s most accurate clock, with a signed dial and quarter cut oak case (est. $2,500-$3,500).

“Complementary to the Pequegnat ethic and spirit,” Mr. Miller said, “we have attracted exciting additions, to include original paintings, fine art glass, pottery, early electric lighting and period furnishings.” Miller added bidders will delight in finding choice “Pequegnat-quality” antiques by names such as Loetz, Quezal, Steuben, Moorcroft, Tiffany, Handel, and Bradley and Hubbard.

In addition to the Brandt and Papendrecht paintings, other artworks expected to do well include the following:

• A watercolor of a warrior on horseback by Juliusz Kossak (1824-1899), with a dwelling behind, signed and dated “1886”, 8 ¾ inches by 11 ½ inches sight (est. $8,000-$12,000).
• An oil on canvas by Frederick Stanley Haines (Canadian, 1879-1960), matted / framed, signed on lower left edge, measuring 32 inches by 24 inches sight (est. $8,000-$10,000).
• A figural forest scene by Canadian artist Homer Ransford Watson, in the original frame, signed lower left edge, measuring 24 inches by 18 ½ inches sight (est. $6,000-$9,000).

A birdseye maple library cupboard made in the Eastern Townships of Ontario in the 1880s or 1890s, made of solid birdseye maple with paneled sides and pull-out ironing board, should bring $4,000-$6,000. Also, a horse statue plaster cast by the famed Woodstock, Ontario sculptor Ross Butler (1907-1995) for Dawes Black Horse Ale, 19 inches tall, is estimated at $2,000-$2,500.

A Stella mahogany music box with 36 discs, the front panel of the original condition case carved with oak leaves and acorns, in excellent playing condition, should rise to $3,000-$5,000. Also, a National Model 3 cash register, the wooden inlaid model coveted by collectors, in untouched original condition, as featured in the book The Incorruptible Cashier, should hit $2,500-$3,500.

A Baccarat close-packed millefiori paperweight, made in France and incorporating canes featuring various figures, to include a monkey, squirrel and birds, signed and dated (“B 1847”) is expected to bring $2,500-$3,500; while a Canadian National “2659” train plate, built in 1910 by MLW for CNR Steam Locomotive, one of two plates in the sale, should achieve $2,500-$3,000.

The auction will also feature Canadian and international art, including works by Thomas Mitchell; Canadiana; folk art and early country store advertising items; period showcases, cabinets and advertising displays of the late Victorian period, and many other fine items.

Previews will be held on Friday, June 7th, from 6-9 pm; and on June 8th from 8-10 am. People can pre-bid live online at the Miller & Miller website – www.MillerandMillerAuctions.com.

Unblock Your Creativity After a Long Winter Indoors

Do you find it difficult to meditate successfully, find your centre, or practice mindfulness? Getting out into nature can help put you back on a healthy path.

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Do you find it difficult to meditate successfully, to find your centre, or to practice mindfulness? Getting out into nature can help alleviate these symptoms and put you back onto a healthy path.

Breathing fresh air, grounding yourself by planting bare feet in the grass, and swimming in a natural body of water can have quite the rejuvenating effect. Stretch out on the ground and watch the clouds roll past to help unblock creativity. Stretching, mindful breathing and doing yoga can also help.

If you can get away from the city to do so, even better. Many artists have found that creating in nature gives them a creative boost. Yoga enthusiasts often speak of the heightened euphoria they can experience while practicing yoga outdoors.

Footprints Resort, a private, natural retreat in central Ontario, sees many artists flocking to their grounds to create beautiful art. “We often see guests sitting on the hill overlooking the lake, with an easel set up or a sketch pad in their lap.” says Footprints owner. “The lake is quite beautiful and inspires a lot of artists to capture it.” The resort sees many photographers as well, hiking through the forest looking for that perfect picture. Sunsets over the lake are particularly breath taking.

Likewise, yoga practitioners are often seen on the beach or on the dock, surrounded by the natural beauty that is Footprints Resort. “It’s so quiet here,” the owner says, “and with no traffic noise, and no children on our Adults-Only resort, our guests can really meditate and practice yoga with none of the usual interruptions.”

Yoga instructors have flocked to Footprints in years past with their clientele to enjoy the view and the natural healing benefits of time spent in nature. Artist groups have booked the entire resort to offer their followers a creative retreat where they could paint, draw or otherwise create with abandon.

So, if you are having trouble tapping into your creativity or meditating successfully, perhaps a trip into nature is what you need.

About Footprints Resort: Located in central Ontario in a pristine, natural setting where time stands still, Footprints Resort is an Adults Only retreat where guests can relax and reconnect. Enjoy our natural, child free vacation destination just a few short hours drive from both Toronto and Ottawa and feel the stress of life melt away.

The Swinging Lifestyle is Saving Marriages

“Swingers” used to mean married couples who engage in sexual activities with others. This is still true, but activities and details of swinging have shifted.

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Once upon a time, the word “Swingers” meant a married couple who engage in sexual activities with other married couples. While this is still true, the activities and details surrounding this lifestyle has shifted in recent years.

Back in the day, Key Parties were the norm, where husbands put their car keys in a bowl or bag at the beginning of the party. At the end of the evening, the wives would draw a set of keys from the bowl to determine who they would go home with. This sort of random match making seems to have gone the way of the DoDo Bird.

Today, modern swingers find many other ways to connect with interested participants, such as online swinger dating sites, Meet & Greets, hotel parties and swingers clubs, to name a few. Most modern swingers are a bit more discerning than our 1970’s counterparts, and are looking for more than just the proverbial shag.

By attending events organized specifically for swingers, attendees can chat with, share info and get to know others interested in this Lifestyle. For many, this goes a long way towards taking those first steps.

There are still those who are looking for the down and dirty of it all, but many modern couples are taking it slow and simply enjoying the atmosphere. Swingers clubs are seeing an upswing in numbers, and the owners of The O Zone in Toronto say it’s due in part to mature married couples looking for a chance to spice up their lives together. “Not all attendees are swingers. Many couples come to dance, to feel sexy, to flirt with their partner and perhaps with others, but many leave without ever visiting the playrooms”, The O Zone owners say. “We’re happy to offer a safe space where they can test the waters and see where they fit into this lifestyle, if at all.”

The club gets plenty of active swingers though, and by midnight the playrooms are in full swing, so to speak. One couple said this of The O Zone, “We love it here! While we are swingers and keep an eye out for others we might like to play with, we are very satisfied to spend an evening dancing, chatting with other couples and making friends. Visiting the club regularly has helped our marriage immensely.”

The O Zone has created a hedonistic nightclub paradise that appeals to many, no matter where their swinging mentality is. With state of the art sound and light system and numerous dance poles and platforms, attendees can enjoy an evening on the dance floor or chatting with other couples. If they find others to play with, there’s always the playrooms in the back, open all night long.

About The O Zone: Toronto's hottest couples' club, The O Zone is the place to be for swinging couples in Toronto. The O Zone is one of North America's largest "on premise" nightclubs. A hedonistic playground of over 10,000 square feet, The O Zone is filled with enough wild and sexy amenities to guarantee a most memorable night for Toronto swingers and open-minded couples. An alternative lifestyle social club, The O Zone is the hottest place in Toronto for couples to come and party, and to form friendships with compatible like-minded swinging couples.

Get Naked Together on Vacation Strengthens Marriages

More and more couples are turning to Nudism as a way to spice up their lives while on vacation, and in turn are strengthening their marriage.

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — If you’ve ever gone skinny dipping at some point in your life, you may remember the glorious feeling of freedom as your clothing fell away. Or maybe it was the sensual feeling of the water gliding past bare flesh, or the thrill of the possibility of being caught that was so appealing. Perhaps it was the titillation of getting naked outdoors, something that is inherently taboo in the real world.

Many a free spirit has experienced this and more, and are seeking a place where they can explore nudism more freely. There are a few locations in Ontario that allow nudism, or at least may look the other way, but these are almost always ‘family friendly’, meaning nothing more than sunbathing and swimming in the nude.

If you wish for a little more freedom where you can get naked and still kiss the wife without recrimination, then check out Sandy Bottoms Resort. Designed for couples and being “Adult Only”, the owners of Sandy Bottoms understand this niche market has no where to go.

Located in central Ontario on a private lake, guests at Sandy Bottoms Resort have no worry of spectators across the lake, as is the norm at so many other nudist destinations.

If you’ve never taken a “Nakation”, the rules are simple. Carry a towel to sit on, and never sit down without it. Show respect for your fellow vacationers, nudists or not. Don’t stare or gawk at others. Don’t touch anyone or anything that is not your own without consent. No cameras or video equipment allowed, including cell phone cameras. These are standard rules at any nudist spot.

Sandy Bottoms Resort is “Clothing Optional”, which means guests do not have to be fully naked like at some other nudist destinations. This means for those who aren’t comfortable, go ahead and wear what you like. It’s very likely that after some time to acclimate, the desire to explore nudism will increase and inhibitions will slip away.

“We see this all the time” says Sandy Bottoms Resort owner. “One of the couple are anxious to be naked, and the other isn’t, but after a day or two, they both are strolling hand in hand, naked or partially undressed. We’re thrilled to offer an Ontario destination where they can explore together in comfort.”

What does one pack for a naked vacation in Ontario? You can skip the bathing suit, shorts and T shirts, but do pack something warm for those cold evenings. Pack a towel or sarong to sit on, and don’t forget a hat, bug repellent and plenty of sun screen.

About Sandy Bottoms: Sandy Bottoms Resort is a 10+ acre private retreat where the majestic outdoors is the backdrop for a secluded adult only paradise. Located in beautiful central Ontario on it’s own private lake, Sandy Bottoms is only a few hours from both Toronto and Ottawa. Couples are encouraged to relax and get to know each other, and is a place to let loose in a safe and private setting. Several accommodations options are available, and the resort is self-catering. For more information about Sandy Bottoms Resort, it’s themed week long vacation options, rates and schedule, please visit www.sandybottomsresort.com

Verasity Partners with Binance Chain, CZ (Changpeng Zhao), CEO & Founder of Binance said: “Video is a powerful tool to educate, engage and entertain. Verasity’s video player solution offers the perfect vehicle for viewers, publishers and content creators

Verasity Partners with Binance Chain

Verasity has announced a partnership with Binance Chain, a blockchain software system, in a move that will bring about a new incentivised video economy.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, May 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Verasity, the digital currency for online video players, has announced a strategic partnership with Binance Chain, a blockchain software system developed by Binance and the community, in a move that will bring about a new incentivised video economy. This will pave the way for more global publishers, creators and advertisers to enter the crypto space.

Verasity is a leading company providing rewarded video player technology to major publishers across the globe. The patent-pending video player enables tokenized rewards (VRA) as well as loyalty schemes within a video player wallet. The unique technology is already available to more than 1.6 million video publishers with 550 million users and 110 billion monthly views bringing engagement and revenues back to publishers’ sites. Verasity’s attention-based model creates a thriving VRA token economy between viewers, video publishers and advertisers.

The Verasity product development has been completed and is now used by publishers. The app unites rewards and loyalty programs into one video player wallet that can be utilized by all the users on the chain: viewers, publishers and advertisers can share across all major video platforms including YouTube, Twitch, Vimeo, JWPlayer, Brightcove, Kaltura, VideoJS, Flowplayer, and Ooyala which represent over 95% of all the video players utilized. This killer app can be integrated in a few minutes by any publisher within its current workflow and viewers are not required to download anything or change their habits. Verasity will announce more mainstream publishers that will adopt the technology in a bid to win viewers’ attention back to their websites.

Mark Hain, Co-founder of Verasity said: “Building on the Binance Chain protocol enhances o ur platform as its one second block time confirmations make it faster and cheaper to send and receive transactions, pivotal for the success of a microtransaction blockchain platform. The power of the Binance community and liquidity in BNB will also add great power to the Verasity project”

CZ (Changpeng Zhao), CEO & Founder of Binance said: “Video is a powerful tool to educate, engage and entertain. Verasity’s video player solution offers the perfect vehicle for viewers, publishers and content creators to benefit from the utility of blockchain technology. I’m glad that Binance and Verasity are leading that charge globally.”

Verawallet.tv is the wallet for VRA and connects directly into the video player. Verasity’s powerful platform enables publishers to grow their audience by rewarding VRA from anywhere across the web. Users can choose to stake VRA, donate VRA to their favorite creators or spend VRA for goods and services all from within Verawallet.tv.

VRA is currently available to trade on HitBTC and CoinAll. Verasity raised more than $8 million through private placements and an ICO in 2018. Further details regarding the technical integration will be disclosed in the coming weeks, in particular the planned migration of ERC-20 tokens to BEP-2 tokens.

Verasity has proposed listing VRA on Binance DEX. We hope the Binance Chain community will support and vote for the listing to improve user adoption and liquidity of VRA tokens. We believe we will contribute additional value to the Binance Chain ecosystem.

PRECAMBRIAN: A Time Traveling Adventure in Music by Sverre Knut Johansen with Robert Rich

Sverre Knut Johansen in his workshop

Sverre Knut Johansen of Norway has created a musical journey back through time with PRECAMBRIAN on Spotted Peccary Music.

Dreamers and Warriors photo by Martin Stranka

Album cover photograph, Dreamers and Warriors, was created by international award-winning photographer Martin Stranka

Robert Rich

San Francisco-based ambient music, dark-ambient, tribal, and trance music artist Robert Rich collaborated on Precambrian.

New Spotted Peccary Release PRECAMBRIAN by Sverre Knut Johansen offers atmospheric aural escape, collectible physical product, and audiophile-worthy recording.

The music is epoch-based where I try to convey with nature sounds what might have happened on Earth, creating moods around certain events that have taken place, like oxygen, birds, water, and ice.”

— Sverre Knut Johansen

PORTLAND, OREGON, USA, May 24, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The story of life on Earth is an ambitious undertaking. Focusing his conceptual musical lens on the prehistoric development of planet Earth and its inhabitants, Sverre Knut Johansen is joined by noted electronic music maestro and soundscape pioneer Robert Rich to create a deeply compelling ambient-electronic odyssey that serves as a virtual soundseeing tour through our planet's vivid history. PRECAMBRIAN, the album, releases on the Spotted Peccary Music label this Friday, May 24, 2019.

PRECAMBRIAN takes the listener through significant geological periods and evolutionary events of Earth's 4.6 billion year history, bringing the epochs and eons to life through musical poetry and recorded natural sounds. The sonic landscapes, both organic and electronic, are always deep and captivating, evolving through abstract amorphous spaces, peaceful harmonious moods, and dramatic eventful moments. One almost wishes it were required curriculum in every 8th Grade Science classroom, for enhancing studying as much as learning evolution and geology.

Sverre Knut Johansen, with Robert Rich, has created a sonic masterpiece that goes from the dim beginnings of gas and dust particles through the formation of the planets, the beginnings of microbes and simple algae creating the air we now breathe, all the way to our current Anthropocene epoch. The music is built on a foundation of swirling synths, pulsing electronics, and occasional rhythmic moments, creating a space where Johansen’s mesmerizing compositions are highlighted by Robert Rich’s piano, with added guitar textures by David Helpling. Add to that the recordings of environmental sounds, both natural and mechanical, and the immersive world of PRECAMBRIAN springs to life with depth, energy, and artistic vitality.

"A meditation on the story of life on Earth is an ambitious undertaking. Perhaps only the language of synthesizers is complex enough to handle it all," writes music critic Robin B. James. "The natural sounds of trickling water and a few supersonic aircraft in the distance are realistically expressed, everything else is purely electronic. This is music for thinking about creation, certainly not a narrative explaining the Big Bang Theory. What you will hear is a meditation."

Album packaging and design stands out on this release, from its 3-fold geological timescale and 20-page booklet to the award-winning photography. PRECAMBRIAN’s cover art, Dreamers and Warriors, was created by international award-winning photographer Martin Stranka, a Czech photographer who won first place with the image at the 2019 prestigious Sony World Photography Awards, chosen from 326,000 photographs from 196 countries.

“The epochs on Earth are an exciting topic for me," Johansen professes, "so I was inspired to create an album around the concept of the Earth's geological time scale. The music is epoch-based where I try to convey with nature sounds what might have happened on Earth, creating moods around certain events that have taken place, like oxygen, birds, water, and ice.” Deep listeners may notice some of the real world ambiance skillfully woven into the tracks throughout the album.

Johansen and Rich transport the listener through the ages as they conjure sonic visions of a planet in constant change. The music evolves in a vivid timelapse that unfolds before the ears, occasionally pausing to experience key events along the way, before the title track ends the album with a sweeping musical epilogue that acts as the closing credits to Johansen’s epic geologic adventure.

Tracklist:
1. HADEAN EON (04.56)
2. ARCHEAN EON (06.40)
3. PROTEROZOIC EON (11.33)
4. PALEOZOIC ERA (07.06)
5. MESOZOIC ERA (06.51)
6. CENOZOIC ERA (07.47)
7. ANTHROPOCENE (05.59)
8. PRECAMBRIAN (11.40)

About Sverre Knut Johansen:
Sverre Knut Johansen is an electronic music composer from Mo i Rana, Norway. His first album Distant Shore was released in 1994 and was produced by Erik Wøllo on the Norwegian label Origo Sound. In 1999, Johansen released The Source of Energy, followed by Planets in 2012. Johansen’s releases Nightshift and Elements of Light were inspired by the work of Steve Roach. Johansen’s previous releases on Spotted Peccary Music include The Vast Expanse, Secret Space Program, and Earth From Above.

About Robert Rich:
Robert Rich has helped define the genres of ambient music, dark-ambient, tribal, and trance, so of course 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). He released his first album Sunyata in 1982, and across four decades he has released over 40 albums. Rich has performed in caves, cathedrals, planetaria, art galleries and concert halls throughout Europe and North America. His all-night Sleep Concerts, first performed in 1982, became legendary in the San Francisco area. Rich’s solo albums available on Spotted Peccary Music include Tactile Ground, Vestiges, What We Left Behind, Filaments, Nest, The Biode, Ylang, Medicine Box and Echo of Small Things.
