Nick Roth

Composition / Sound design

Nick Roth is a saxophonist, composer, producer and educator.

His work explores the liberation of improvisation from composition, the impact of natural forms on technology and the contemporary interpretation of traditional music.

A curious predisposition and a steadfast refusal to accept the existence of boundaries between the real and the imaginary has led to collaborations with many of the world’s leading performers, composers, choreographers, directors, visual artists, festivals, poets and ensembles.

Similarly, a fascination with emergent cycle and structure has led to ongoing conversations with scientists and research institutions across the interweaving disciplines of mathematical biology, forest canopy ecology, marine geology and hydrology.

Nick is artistic director of Yurodny, a founding member of the Water Project and a partner at Diatribe Records, Ireland’s leading independent record label for new music.

His work is represented by the Contemporary Music Centre (CMC) and the Association of Irish Composers (AIC).
