Electronic Musician

Rick Reid is an avid composer and performer of original and experimental electronic music and sound effects.  His musical creations have been heard in live theater productions, web videos, several TV commercials and on a promo for a national cable TV network.  Rick plays and records with a wide range of acoustic and electronic instruments including synthesizers, theremins, stylophones, melodicas, guitars and other instruments and devices too numerous and/or bizarre to list.  

Many of Rick's musical creations can be streamed for free at BandCamp, SoundCloud and YouTube.  To inquire about licensing his music for video, film or other media productions, send Rick an email.

In addition to recording, Rick occasional performs live in music venues around the Denver and Boulder, Colorado metro areas with the Concrète Mixer electronic music collective and other ad hoc groups.

Calculated Risk album art

Rick's 2015 album, Calculated Risk, is a compilation of improvisational recordings that cultivate elements of chance introduced by various audio and control voltage processing devices.  Several of the tracks were created almost exclusively with Moog moogerfooger effects pedals.  Other tracks feature a Moog Slim Phatty, a Moog Theremini and a vintage Hammond E-111 tone wheel organ.
