RICHARD DEVINE

Atlanta-based electronic musician and sound designer, Devine is recognized for producing a layered and heavily processed sound combining influences from hip-hop to old and modern electronic music. He has contributed sound design to a number of hardware and software manufacturers (designing sound patches for NI’s Absynth, Reaktor, Battery and Massive) and recently released his own first official sample library through Sony Creative Software entitled The Electronic Music Manuscript: A Richard Devine Collection. He has also scored commercials for Nike, Touchstone Pictures and engineered and performed his own music worldwide. As a result of praise of his music from Autechre and a remix of Aphex Twin’s Come To Daddy, Devine recorded an album for Warp Records which was jointly released by Schematic and Warp. Devine first started using computers for composition around 1993. Coding his ownFFT applications in SuperCollider, an environment and programming language for real-time audio synthesis he believes “it’s interesting, because you’re doing things to sound that just aren’t physically possible.” Devine also uses Native Instruments (NI) software. His favorite NI applications are Reaktor and Absynth.
