MUSIC FOR MODERN DANCE & THEATRE

Commissioned

Since 2010, Richard composes and creates music for modern dance pieces. He mixes, produces and plays all music himself, except in a few collaborations. He also performs the music live on stage regularly, playing a variety of instruments.

His colourful work juxtaposes elements of electronic dance music, musique concrete and ambient. With his dadaistic "audio-collages", displaying a broad diversity in sound and instrumentation, Richard seeks to create an intrinsic logic that not only supports the dance, but also adds another layer to the performances. From pure electronica to live string quartet, from manipulated drums to solo baritone guitar. 

Richard is a freelancer who has worked with many choreographers for companies around the world:
