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

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

A fascination with emergence, cycle and structure has led to conversations with scientists and research institutions across the interweaving disciplines of mathematical biology, forest canopy ecology and hydrology, ever in search of a conception of music as translative epistemology.

Simultaneously subsumed by an insatiable appetite for literature, his compositions often explore the philosophical implications of poetry and the symbiotic resonance of words as sound and image.

A curious predisposition and a steadfast refusal to accept the existence of boundaries between the real and the imaginary has led to collaborations with an array of international performers, composers, choreographers, directors, visual artists, festivals, poets and ensembles.

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).
