Richard Hunter creates immersive high production orchestral music delivering a vivid and diverse experience for listeners. Using both orchestral and contemporary instruments, he fuses traditional scoring, sound design, and electronica to create a lively sound. A graduate from Bimm (Tech Music School), Richard uses his experience with film composers Patrick Doyle and Tom Howe to deliver a modern and professional dynamic.
Richard Hunter was born in Glasgow, UK and moved to London in 2009 to study music. A multi–Instrumentalist, he gained an BMus (Hons) Degree in Music with Bimm (Tech Music School) in association with the University of West London and London College of Music, studying under composers/ producers Adam Bird and Kevin Webster. After graduating in 2012, Richard has had experience observing and assisting with award winning composer Patrick Doyle and television composer Tom Howe. Experiencing the development of Sony’s platformer game “Puppeteer” at Patrick Doyles Shepperton Studios and various television adverts at Tom Howes studio in London, composing orchestral and media work became a bigger part of Richard’s writing process. Now with his own music studio at creative hub Hayburn Studios, Richard aims to provide fresh, versatile and creative musical works to suit the needs of developers. Using both authentic and virtual instruments in his studio, Richard also uses current industry production techniques to create immersive and compelling musical work.
As a bassist has had a wide range of experience as a touring musician with various contemporary bands, session work, studio recording, festivals and cruises. He has co-produced a number of albums and uses this knowledge gained from these experiences and from current production work to his music. Richard has played in the Glasgow Strings Orchestra (2007-2008), performing double bass for various Classical and Baroque pieces lead by conductor Andrew Morris at the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (RSAMD).
Additionally, he has gained a masters diploma in Music Education with the University of Edinburgh and has taught music to various education centres across Scotland and United States. Additionally, he has created and lectured a NQ Sound Reinforcement course at Glasgow Clyde College.
