Richard is an upcoming British Composer writing bespoke music for Film and TV.
Since completing his masters degree, in 2017, at Bristol University, Richard has gone on to work on a multitude of differing projects, spanning from short films and documentaries to VR productions. Recently, he has been assisting top British composers such as Martin Phipps on Season 3 of The Crown as well as the BBC drama Black Earth Rising. He has also worked for Samuel Sim on shows such as The Bay and Dark Crystal. His music is also featured on Universal Production Music and BMG Music Production where his work has been synced worldwide on programmes for Channel 5, National Geographic and the BBC.
Richard’s love for composition started during his studies at Durham University where he graduated with a Bachelors degree in Music, with special emphasis in composition. During his time studying, Richard had the opportunity to fine tune his understanding of contemporary music as well as electronic and world music, which now has a significant effect on his style and approach to composition for film.
In 2016 Richard decided to study composition further but this time within the realms of Film and TV.
After a year of studying, he graduated with a distinction from the University of Bristol with a Masters degree in Composition for Film and TV. Here, he was able to expand on the rich musical foundation he had learned in Durham, often turning to ethnic instruments and electronics to complement his orchestral works. For his final projects, he was fortunate enough to score the student BAFTA nominated film ‘A Lion’s Tale’ as well as work with nationally renowned ensembles such as the Bristol Ensemble.
After graduating in early 2017, he began his career as a full time composer. In September 2017 he was awarded second prize in the annual film scoring competition for the California Independent film festival.
