Jacob Richman is a mixed-media composer whose work explorers the relationship between sight and sound in live performance and fixed media works. His performance pieces mix live-processed video, music, and sound to create unique multimedia settings in which performers can interact. He is fascinated by what he sees as the interconnectedness of things: people with places, sounds with textures, humans with animals, plants and the natural world. He feels that exploring the relationships between sounds and images in performance is an effective way to both investigate and convey these greater connections that surround us. Jacob lives in Providence, Rhode Island and recently received a Ph.D. in the MEME program at Brown University.
