Growing up in prime Brass Band country, Richard spent his early years learning & playing trumpet and piano. Quickly becoming obsessed with the power of music when paired with visuals, he found inspiration in James Horner & Jerry Goldsmith’s wonderful work on the Star Trek films, alongside Delia Derbyshire’s haunting electronic manipulation on Doctor Who, and Barry Gray’s characterful chamber ensembles on Thunderbirds.
Now still in Brighton, Richard has composed the music for multiple games and films, and is known for a mix of unbridled creative experimentation – finding and sculpting new sounds from every source possible – as well as an unashamedly melodic, textural and musical approach to his work.
Richard is a music & Sound award nominee 2020 (Doctor Who), BAFTA Crew 2021, with custom advertising work for Netflix, Disney & Columbia pictures.
