The project incorporates various electronic and computer based sound devices to evoke places, moods and and the ability to transport the listener to otherworldly realms. His music is designed for meditation, introspection and relaxation.
Originally from the state of Virginia, Rik has been involved in electronic and experimental music since the late 70's.
Being involved in various professional bands of all musical styles throughout the eighties and nineties including his seminal electronic band "New Law Nightmare", Rik has evolved with the "new" technologies while keeping great emphasis on musical content.
His new new found alliance with Boston based long time friend, producer,"synth junkie" and sound engineer Johnathan Fire promises to yield deeper excursions into the world of electronic music and a welcome addition to the "11 miles West of Nowhere" catalog of artists. So dear listener, free your mind and enjoy!
