Melbourne based Australian artist Roderick Price began life as a visual artist with strengths in graphic drawing, illustration and painting. Rod completed his fine art Diploma in 2003 at Box Hill TAFE and in 2006 completed his fine arts Degree at RMIT University. During his studies at RMIT Rod adapted his fine arts practice to the digital realm where he developed an eye for digital imaging and more importantly was exposed to the medium of sound. Rod's attendance of the 'sound art' and 'sound design' courses at RMIT dramatically altered the direction of his fine art practice. The sound courses introduced Rod to the academic and artistic movements in music. He instantly identified with the connections and relationships between musical and fine art movements and saw 'sound' as an exciting medium in which to explore his own fine art practice that wasn't restricted to the picture plane. Rod grew up on a diet of grunge rock but it wasn't long until he was exposed to electronic artists like Autechre, Aphex Twin and Squarepusher.

The more he searched for new and exciting music the deeper underground Rod found himself, discovering more and more artists and labels that supported his own aesthetic ideas. Most of Rod's work, both visual and sonic, expresses a dark aesthetic quality that employ methods of abstraction and manipulation. Rod's compositions often refer to ideas found in industrial,dark wave,ambient,noise and electro acoustic music. His objective is to compose music that ignites strong emotional responses in the listener, be it sentimental, nostalgic or nightmarish horror. Rod is currently doing Post Grad studies at RMIT in SOUND. He has been very lucky to have studied under the academic and artistic watch of RMIT sound lecturers Philip Samartzis and Darrin Verhagen (Shinjuku Thief) who's influences have been one of the largest on Rod's work. Rod soon hopes to find a way to make his arts practice lucrative so he can do what he loves doing most of all, making art.
