Richard’s experience over the years has brought him to record over 22 film scores with internationally renowned orchestras such as THE ROYAL PHILHARMONIC ORCHESTRA, THE LONDON SYMPHONY and THE ROME PHILHARMONIC. He has also had his music recorded in Prague, Romania, Croatia and Munich. In more recent years, Richard has also enjoyed scoring a variety of family and comedy films for Viacom and Paramount Pictures as well as hundreds of animated vignettes for the WB kid's network all of which were scored with orchestra. Between 1998 and 2005 Richard was also responsible for scoring the music for the WB Network promotional departments which included a great deal of original music for their primetime shows.
Some of these included the campaign music for “Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, “Seventh Heaven”, “Dawson’s Creek”, “Charmed”, “Smallville”, “Gilmore Girls” and “Birds of Prey”. His musical talents can also be heard on miscellaneous amusement park rides including ALIENS - THE RIDE as well as several Vegas venues. Among the many interactive games Richard has scored the music for STAR TREK, WATERWORLD, CASPER, STONEKEEP, DECENT UNDER MOUNTAIN, CLAYFIGHTER and INVICTUS: THE SHADOW OF OLYMPUS.
