NEST is the last sound testimony of a tiny world in perpetual procreation signed Robert Rich. The lightning strike for the subject of his last opus came during his Australian tour of the beginning of 2012 when he was the witness of a luxuriant tree-dwelling animal fauna which was born and swarmed beneath the diverse singings from a variety of invertebrates' orchestras. These chants from cicadas and tree frogs as well as the surrounding noises of a jungle in full awakening adorn the wandering melodies and the sweet contemplative ambiences that are structuring Rich's last album.
