Growing up in Cape Breton, NS, Nathan Richards exercised his musical energies in loud, aggressive music and his parents‚ vinyl collection. He discovered pretentious art music at Mount Allison University (Sackville NB). Though still more dedicated to bar-chord infallibility, he gained respect for unruly sound events, especially ones of that transpire over long durations. Having completed formal music education, Richards wishes to appreciate art music from a respectful distance, and wait for sonic accidents to occur so that he can claim and name them.
