On Galactic Travels, the Special Focus for June is Robert Rich. Across three decades and over 30 albums, Robert Rich has helped define the genres of ambient music, dark-ambient, tribal and trance, 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.
Galactic Travels podcasts make special moments from the show available for your on-demand listening pleasure.
In June, 2007, Robert Rich was touring the east coast and two of his concerts were in the WDIY vicinity. While at NEARfest in Bethlehem, I caught up with Robert who granted me an interview which aired on program #535, broadcast on June 28, 2007.
