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.
