Richard Norris is a composer writing for theatre, film and concert events. He is particularly interested in mixing old with new and aims to bring these together in his music. Richard has a Ph.D in composition and is furthering this with new music nights in 2016. Two new albums are due for release in early 2016, Diary of a Decade with new folk group Split Arrow, and Opposites React I with Richard's own ensemble. Richard regularly works as in education as a lecturer, music journalist and workshop leader.
"Richard's music is bang on the pulse with its take on current affairs and stunningly up-to-date with its fusion of computers, beats and acoustics. Absolutely at the very cutting edge of what's happening in today's composition"
Brian Lock, Film Composer
