“I focused most of 2018 investigating ideas surrounding my new album. I started by asking questions about tactile synesthesia, as I have long used touch and texture as a metaphor when I work with sound. This led me to start painting again, trying to find a visual abstract language that echoed the way I feel sound on my skin. (You can see my graphic art page here: https://robertrich.com/graphic-art/) This led to a two CD set with a 16 page booklet, using my paintings. Both discs are quite deep and atmospheric, each with a continuous flow of sound: the first one more naturalistic and gentle, the second more abstract and shadowy. It may seem a bit Quixotic to put together an extravagant package in a time when most people aren’t buying CDs, but this isn’t a pragmatic exercise. I suspect “Tactile Ground” will find its core audience with those who like my slower, more introverted work.” -Robert Rich

Can we find a tactile ground, an animal surface upon which to calibrate our humanity?

Skin telegraphs sensation from air,
filtered from distant worlds.
Language constricts our sense of self
to an illusion of separation.
The verb of living, flux and transmutation,
expands outward from the middle,
concentric ripples on a pond.
We drop through the surface,
pebbles tossed from the shore.
