Rick Reed Sampler
Elevator Bath Catalog:
Music for Performance (2003)
Limited to 44 CD-R's and thus mostly unheard compositions for performance and installation in handmade paper packaging.
Dark Skies at Noon (2005)
Drifting currents across three elongated pieces open with the 30-minute title track, one of Reed's signature works of diffusing tones and disintegrating particles.
Dreamz/Blue Polz (2008)
A stunning picture disc showcasing Reed's visual art. Sonically, the compositions contrast the colorful visual swirl with twin tones oscillating bleakly.
The Way Things Go (2011)
Twin monoliths of iconic Reed electronics span four sides of harrowing drones and static restless interiors, beginning with the soundtrack for Ken Jacobs' film "Capitalism: Child Labor" on the A-side.
Notable Solo Releases:
A Collection of Improvised & Experimental Music From Austin, Texas (1997)
A collection of compositions featuring early-Eighties collaborations with John French of Switched On as released on Thurston Moore's Ecstatic Peace label.
Music for the Rothko Chapel (2000)
Ominous drone, with shifting registers piercing and scraping in and out of range.
