EVERY KIND OF MUSIC IS GOOD
EXCEPT THE BORING KIND
- Gioachino Rossini
Darkest Day Soundtrack
‘Wilx’ is me – Richard Wilkinson.
It’s a childhood nickname that never went away, so I’ve stuck with it; through piano lessons, six years playing cornet in a brass band, a music degree at Liverpool Uni and down in Brighton writing music for various projects.
Every piece of music I write, whether it’s for TV, film, computer games or anything else, has some strong element of personality. I’m a big melody guy, so the hook is often a lyrical, melodic through-line – but I’m equally at home starting with a timbre or textural idea if melody isn’t the focus.
I’ve been lucky enough to work with some fantastic instrumental players and sections, and use them as frequently as projects will allow.
My previous work includes feature films, TV ads, a handful of videogames and an even bigger handful of production music which has made its way amongst all of the main TV channels and beyond.
