Classically trained from the age of nine, Richard Pleasance began composing instrumental music in his teens and later studied music at the Melbourne State College.
His music career really took off after forming Boom Crash Opera in the mid-eighties. The band enjoyed national success: their first album achieved gold sales and their second double platinum.
Since then, Richard has released ARIA-nominated solo albums and has produced, recorded, written for and played with a diverse range of artists including Archie Roach, Paul Kelly, Augie March, Jimmy Little, Deborah Conway, Kate Ceberano and Suzanne Vega.
Richard’s strong pop sensibilities combined with his love of instrumental music eventually led him to film and TV composition. He has since composed music for several award-winning TV series: SeaChange, City Homicide and Wentworth, and the iconic Australian box-office smash, Kenny.
Richard has recently completed composing the score for the feature film Brothers Nest and is currently working on a new season of Wentworth.
