Soundhacker, Synaesthete, NASA Datanaut
LJ Rich is an absolute live wire of energy, imagination and inspiration: she’s a presenter, journalist, producer, inventor, creator, and composer. As presenter for the BBC technology show “Click”, LJ has become an influential voice in technology with a deep understanding of the unexpected ways technology trends and innovations are changing established markets.
A rare female voice in the tech world, she also seeks out the more eccentric end of where humans, creativity and technology meet:
_ LJ has performed data analysis to define the ultimate dance anthem
_ She’s subverted London’s Bluetooth beacons and turned them into a musical installation
_ She’s built interactive musical installations for SXSW, Harvard, Bestival UK and Nocturnal Wonderland in L.A.
Further to tech trend presentations, LJ has created unique talks where she combines music and innovation: she can either take you on a hyper-immersive journey of her synaesthesia condition (using sound and smell) or she can perform on piano whilst sharing a musician’s guide to innovation.
