Richard Pinhas is still a force in world music today… his music has the emotive depth that most other electronauts hardly begin to grapple with. Add to this its other attributes: alien atmospheres, futuristic imagery, feelings of the mystery of technology, precise clinical production, belief in creative and political revolution, an obscure intellectual base and references to science fiction…then there is a musical force that has little or no rival."– Audion

Ceaselessly innovative in a career spanning nearly 40 years, Richard Pinhas is recognized as one of France's major experimental musicians. A composer, world-class guitarist and electronics innovator, he is a key figure in the international development of electronic rock music. During the 1970s, Pinhas' stature in France was analogous to Tangerine Dream's in Germany: the father figure of an entire musical movement. Years before MIDI existed, Richard was creating sophisticated electronic music using vast walls of the available components of the day. His band Heldon fused electronics, "diabolical guitar work" and rock to create a pioneering, aggressive music that was a precursor to the industrial music and techno to come. The groundbreaking music he created in the '70 with Heldon and solo remains vital and unsurpassed today, evident in its worldwide revival among a new, younger generation of musicians and fans.
