Richard Pleasance knew he was going to be a Musician since he could chew gum.
Classically trained from the age of 9 he was composing instrumental music in his teens.
He studied music at Melbourne State College and at the same time played in several seminal Australian bands, later forming Boom Crash Opera.
Although having strong pop music sensiblities his love of ethnic colours and strangeness guided him towards film & television composition.
He composed the award winning music for the hit ABC series Sea Change noted for it’s memorable acoustic flavour and the tense CH 7 crime drama series City Homicide featuring gritty electronic urban soundscapes.
Adept in extreme variations of style from salsa to techno from the subtle pluck of an oud string to a blazing electric guitar riff; Richard’s music always emotes.
