Richard Pike is a London-based Australian composer & multi-instrumentalist. He is best known as singer and producer of Sydney pioneers PVT (aka Pivot) and ambient/experimental project DEEP LEARNING. Richard is founder of Salmon Universe, a tape label with a focus on ambient and electronic music. As screen composer he has scored ROMPER STOMPER (Stan TV & BBC Three), LES NORTON (ABC TV) and Channel 7's AUSTRALIAN GANGSTER (due for broadcast 2021). Richard was nominated for Best Original Score in a Television Series at the 2018 AACTA Awards for Romper Stomper. ​The score for ROMPER STOMPER was praised by FBI Radio Sydney: "Pike’s excellent soundtrack is a mixture of orchestral cues, burbling synths, live drums and snarling electronics, not far at all from the soundtrack stuff Ben Frost has been doing of late…. I highly recommend giving this a listen." Richard studied at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, exploring 20th Century orchestral music. His band PVT (aka Pivot) were the first Australians signed to legendary label Warp Records UK. Richard has produced 5 albums with PVT including the venerated 'O Soundtrack My Heart' (2009) and the debut 'Make Me Love You' (2005), which was nominated for Triple J's inaugural J Awards. He has toured the world supporting the likes of Sigur Ros, Gary Numan, Arctic Monkeys, Gotye & Warpaint. As sound designer he has worked with London innovators United Visual Artists, for clients including Hyundai, Nike, Cartier and Jo Malone perfumes.
