Pink Nothing 09:13


‘There’s a lot of serendipity involved in wrestling grooves out of these awkward machines’, says Richards about the process behind the record. ‘A large part of the composition is making the machines and the patches. They define the limitations of the pieces coming together. Then the performances are happy accidents - found using intuition and practice.’

Made up of two studio sessions and one live recording, PINK NOTHING reflects the unusual space Richards inhabits musically. It’s partly informed by his background as a PhD student at Goldsmiths, where he re-imagined and built the Mini Oramics machine – a 'drawn sound' instrument first conceived by electronic music pioneer Daphne Oram, and finally realised by Richards in 2016.

But Richards is also an autodidact beat-maker, and much of the structures and sounds on PINK NOTHING derive from dance music, while his influences also include ritual trance, Ghanaian drum choir music, and the cellular rhythms of Steve Reich. ‘It’s polyrhythmic abstract electronica’ – and he emphasises – ‘listening music'.
