Nick Roth is a saxophonist, composer, producer and educator.
A curious predisposition and a steadfast refusal to accept the existence of boundaries between the real and the imaginary has led to collaborations with an array of international performers, composers, choreographers, visual artists, poets, sculptors, directors, festivals and ensembles.
Engaging in conversation with mathematical biologists, astrophysicists, canopy ecologists and hydrologists, his compositions interrogate the inherence of meaning in form, whilst simultaneously subsumed by an insatiable appetite for literature and exploring the symbiotic resonance of language as sound and text.
In 2017 he was artist-in-residence at the European Space Agency (ESTEC) and dlr LexIcon, in 2015 at the California Academy of Sciences and the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA) and in 2014 at the Centre Culturel Irlandais (CCI), Paris
