What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.

Electronic composer, modular synthesist and vocalist Arushi Jain celebrates the release of her stunning new album, Delight, with a special performance at National Sawdust on Saturday, June 8th. Jain deploys the sounds and aesthetics of contemporary experimental electronic music to channel, celebrate, iterate upon, and interrogate traditional Indian idioms. Alongside her close collaborators who worked on the record with her, this performance will commemorate Jain’s guiding vision for the record with a one-of-a-kind performance to mark its release.

About Arushi Jain

Arushi Jain is a modular synthesist, singer, producer, radio host and engineer with an unorthodox vision of a centuries-old tradition – one that’s electronic and resolutely DIY. Her compositions are inspired by Hindustani classical ragas, explored in an aesthetic that is contemporary and current. Her music is a unique reinterpretation of her two contrasting worlds colliding. Arushi grew up in Delhi, where she was exposed to Indian classical and other regional music from a young age. Later, Arushi moved to California to study Computer Science at Stanford University, where she was introduced to computer generated sounds and synthesis at the Centre for Computer Research in Music and Acoustics (CCRMA). In her music, ancient ragas from North India are re-imagined with the tools and technologies she learnt as a synthesist and technologist in the Bay Area. Her last album, Under the Lilac Sky, was released on Leaving Records in July 2021, and was named the Guardian’s Global Album of the month. Her work has been featured on Pitchfork, Bandcamp, Boiler Room, Ableton, Resident Advisor, FACT, Crack, DJMag, and more. Arushi is the founder of GHUNGHRU, a radio series and record label, and is a resident at NTS Radio and boxout.fm. She is popularly known by her online moniker @modularprincess.

Her anticipated new album Delight, is out on March 29th on Leaving Records.

About James K

A version of James K was born. Comprised of bones, reactive metals and a larynx with freckled eyes that catalyzes that mix, she can now see through all the schemes. This is the truth. When she chews gum, it's not clear which one of her personas does it. Since their first release in 2013, describing them separately is grunt work as they switch places, cosplay each other and would most likely lull you into a lonesome dream. Together, they know how to produce, sound, film and edit. Thus, they are brought to the table, performing and DJing in clubs and theaters, along composers and musicians alike. In the past year, she has performed throughout the US, UK and Europe at festivals and venues such as Sustain Release, Dripping Festival, Nowadays, Public Records, Volksbuhne. In recent years she has played at Meakusma Festival, and Tresor 31 Festival, NY Art Book Fair, as well as support for pioneer Morton Subotnick's final run of live shows, shared stage with James Ferraro, Robert Aiki Aubrey Lowe, and Yves Tumor.

She released her sophomore LP, 'Random Girl,' on Incienso in September 2022, has released with labels such as AD 93, PAN, iDEAL, Dial, UNO, among others, and operates her label She Rocks! Her collaboration with hoodie, a 10” titled ‘Scorpio,’ was released this past summer via AD 93, landing on numerous EOTY lists. K has been a resident on NTS, with her show, ‘Trip Lick,’ since 2019, and she has provided mix's series such as Dekmantel, Crack and Fact, and is a past resident of Issue Project Room, NY. She has collaborated with artists such as Priori, Hoodie, Beta Librae, Yves Tumor, Drew McDowall, LEYA, Parris. She produces music that makes temporary haven for indomitable lyrics – and these are in constant flux. You can check what they are here: [917 908-1173]. It's only a part of her fairly detailed world. A world that she abandons and then builds upon.

Take a sip of water before your memory error blinks. Dial to K. Listen to the disfragmented territory and the cast of it she’s making. It might not be what you will have thought tomorrow.
