Rick Reed is a self-taught composer and improviser who has been working in the Austin underground music scene for the past 25 years. Reed’s unique compositional style is an ear-bending, yet always restrained blur of sine waves, field recordings, short-wave radio, and Moog synthesizer. Reed has defined his sound while performing solo and with various groups including Frequency Curtain and the Abrasion Ensemble. Since the mid 90s, Reed has released several LPs and CDs on labels such as Ecstatic Peace, Beta-lactam Ring, Pale Disc Japan, Mikroton and Elevator Bath.
