Richard Lainhart - Electronic Musician


The turn of the year brings sad news - electronic musician Richard Lainhart passed away 30th December 2011 aged 58.

Lainhart, an award winning electronic music  composer, was recently featured in the trailer for the modular synth documentary I Dream of Wires, sat in front of his Buchla and Hakan Continuum system.

Based in New York, he studied under Joel Chadabe, another pioneering electronic musician, where he had access to the Coordinated Electronic Music System - at one time, considered to be the world’s largest modular Moog setup.

With a brief spell as Technical Director at Intelligent Music he oversaw such projects as UpBeat, M and Jam Factory, a MIDI composition environment for the Amiga.

As a composer, and performer he worked with Stevie Reich, Jordan Rudess, John Cage and other luminaries of modern electronic composition, appearing live somewhere in the region of 2000 times. With over 100 compositions to his credit his works have been performed worldwide.

Lainhart was also an accomplished short film maker - with several prestigious awards and festival screenings to his name.

He will be sorely missed by those who knew him or admired his work.
