San Francisco Bay Area based electronic musician, Rich Brodsky aka Atomic Skunk, weaves together ambient field recordings, lush pads, and organic acoustic instruments with high-tech arpeggiated synths, glitchy, chaotic rhythms, and haunting melodies to create a unique psychedelic ambient soundscape.

Although he played in traditional western rock bands for many years, Rich has always leaned towar. s the deconstruction of traditional forms. He has studied non-western music such as Indonesian Gamelan, Indian Ragas, and African drumming and counts these along with ambient artists, The Orb and The Future Sound of London as well as the legendary Hearts of Space radio show as some of his strongest influences.

Atomic Skunk made a splash on the ambient electronic scene in 2009 with the release of Binary Scenes, garnering high praise from electronic music fans, bloggers and ambient music stalwarts such as Hearts of Space producer, Stephen Hill and Echoes Radio producer, John Dilberto, who described the music as "note perfect ambient, full of mood, unusual dreamstate shifts and psychedelic edges." Echoes Radio listeners voted Binary Scenes one of the "Top 200 CDs of the last 20 Years." Portal was a featured album on numerous, legendary ambient music radio programs such as Hearts of Space, Echoes Radio, SOMA FM, Musical Starstreams and Radioio Ambient. Echoes Radio listeners voted it into the Top 25 for the "2010 Best of Echoes Radio" listeners poll, while the staff of Echoes Radio featured Portal as one of their "25 Essential Echoes CDs for 2010..

In 2011, Brodsky released a new album as Atomic Skunk entitled Alchemy. The album features 7 all new original tracks, including an epic drone piece, over 24 minutes in length entitled, "Temple of Stars." Brodsky is currently working on some exciting collaborations with a vocalist and recently wrapped up another solo effort - a long form piece entitled "Wintermuse," released in December, 2011. « hide
