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.

GRAMMY Award-winning composer and violist for Attacca Quartet Nathan Schram will premiere his new album NEARSIDED in this multimedia performance. Schram’s latest album is a testament to the power of exploration and sees him eschew genre to test the possibilities of what can be created in the studio and on-stage. NEARSIDED wears its influences on its sleeve: mimicking Mahler’s penchant for contrasting moods in his symphonic works to the electronica of Radiohead's Kid A and the moody realism of Kendrick Lamar’s good kid, m.A.A.d city. The result of these varied influences is an album that uses new music to explore a full range of emotions, from exultant joy to glowering darkness, by combining electronics and strings. Join Nathan Schram and his special guests–Attacca Quartet, Becca Stevens, Caroline Shaw, and more–for the world premiere of NEARSIDED in this album release show.

NEARSIDED is out July 29th via Better Company Records.

Regarded by the New York Times as an “elegant soloist” with a sound “devotional with its liquid intensity,” Nathan is a GRAMMY Award-winning composer and violist of the Attacca Quartet. Nathan has collaborated, in the studio and on stage, with many of the great artists of today including Björk, James Blake, David Crosby, Becca Stevens, David Byrne, Just Blaze, Itzhak Perlman, Joshua Bell and others. Nathan is a PhD student in composition at Princeton University and an Honorary Ambassador to the city of Chuncheon, South Korea.

Nathan’s first solo record of original compositions, Oak and the Ghost, was released on New Amsterdam Records and heavily featured various electronic instruments and the players of his beloved Attacca Quartet. As a member of Attacca, Schram has released records on Sony Classical, GroundUP Music, Nonesuch, and New Amsterdam Records.

Apart from performing, Nathan is the Founder and Artistic Director of Musicambia.
