Biography

Ron Anderson is a multi-instrumentalist intuitive music maker who plays traditional instruments like the electric guitar, but will also use anything that can make a sound - including the recording studio. He has performed in 16 different countries with multiple tours of North America, Europe and Japan.

Ron was a co-founder of the notorious rock group RAT AT RAT R in Philadelphia 1980- 81. It was in Philadelphia that he purchased 2 reel to reel tape recorders and started experimenting with tape editing, found sounds, noise, improvisation and combining these with composition.

In 1982 Ron moved to New York City’s Lower East Side. He continued to experiment, moving to Downtown Brooklyn in 1984 starting his first recording studio where he held weekly improvisation nights, releasing his first recording (on vinyl) Fever Dream in 1987. Throughout the 80’s performed in many of the clubs in New York’s Downtown music scene, CBGB’S, LA MAMA, THE PYRAMID, THE GAS STATION, THE KNITTING FACTORY with various groups and musicians. At this time he worked on tape installations for various art galleries, composed music for two premier performances of the ROBERT SMALL DANCE COMPANY at DANCE THEATER WORKSHOP and ST. MARKS CHURCH.

Moved to Oakland, CA in 1989, set up a new studio. 1990 began his longest running project THE MOLECULES. These bad boys of new music developed a controversial approach of free rock and dada concepts, which left them equally loved and hated in San Francisco. Completing a total of 6 CDs and an unreleased triple cd set.
