Boyd Rice lives and works in Denver, Colorado. A pioneering noise musician (mainly operating under the moniker “NON”) as well as an artist, writer, archivist, and occult researcher, Rice has proven himself an influential and provocative underground figure of the post-punk era. In 2004, Rice co-founded the UNPOP ART movement, which he remained active in until its disbandment in 2010. He has also been affiliated with The Partridge Family Temple since joining the group in the early 1990s.
