Nick Roth is a saxophonist, composer, educator and producer based in Dublin, Ireland.
His work explores the liberation of improvisation from composition, the impact of natural form on technology and the contemporary interpretatio n of traditional music. A curious predisposition and a constant refusal to accept the existence of boundaries between the real and the imaginary has led to collaborations with many of the world's leading performers, composers, choreographers, visual artist s and ensembles. Similarly, a deep fascination with emergent pattern has led to on - going conversations with key scientific institutions in the interwoven fields of mathematical biology, forest canopy ecology and hydrology.
As a composer, he has been commissioned to write works for numerous ensembles, organisations and musicians including the Arts Council of Ireland, European Saxophone Ensemble, RTÉ Contempo Quartet, Trio InVento, Contemporary Music Centre, Paul Roe, Music for Galway, Yurodny Ensemble, Mode l Arts, The Ark, Emma Martin Dance, Common Ground and Rough Magic Theatre Company.
As a performer, he has worked in three continents with many of the world’s leading musicians including John Taylor, Savina Yann atou, Bobby McFerrin, Iarla Ó Lionáird, Jenni fer Walshe, Guillaume Orti, Tom Arthurs, Julian Arguelles, Ben Davi s, Crash Ensemble, Oren Marshall, Emer Mayock, Florian Ross, Merlin Shepherd, Jamie Oehlers, Mihály Borbély, Miklós Lukács, Gilad Atzmon, Sean Carpio, Kate Ellis, Cora Venus Lunny, Mark Tokar, Gabrielle Mi rabassi, Oleg Ponomarev, Francesco Turrisi, Paul Roe, Benjamin Dwyer, Furio di Castri, Zohar Fresco, Alkinoos Ioannidis, Theodosii Spassov and Pedram Zavir Kamini.
