Based in the North West UK, Richard Taylor is a composer exploring all kinds of sonic resonances from powerpop to jazz/blues to orchestral hybrid to whacky Hungarian folk tunes it seems! An experienced composer and player he has toured Europe and the UK with many a 'nearly made it' band with highlights including playing the Birmingham NEC and The Royal Albert Hall. Lowlights include playing to a pub with 5 in the crowd and agreeing to play on after performing to 16,000 people the week before - rock'n'roll eh!? Richard, who is also a fully qualified teacher, composes mainly bespoke scores for film and commercials
I have always composed music of all genres but take a particular interest in music for fretted string instruments in all styles. I have always been fascinated by the way music changes the feel, emotion and message of the moving image and always seek to provide professional, efficient auditory excellence as a soundtrack composer.
