Richard H. Bright, born 5 Feb 1953 in Bury St. Edmunds, Suffolk, England.
Secondary Modern education at Grantham, Lincolnshire till 1968. Further education at Grantham Tech College till 1969, then joined the British Army.
Military carreer with the Royal Engineers, serving in UK and Germany till 1983.
From 1984 till 1992 worked in car sales, selling new tax free cars to the armed forces in germany.
From 1992 till 2006 worked in a photo lab at MÃnchengladbach, Germany. Since April 2006 decided to make music composing a full time career, which was till that date only a hobby.
Hmm, guess that means IÂm unemployed!
The best bit of luck so far was discovering www.tunecore.com itÂs a place ideal for artists like me who have no label, to get their music up on the online shops like iTunes, Rhapsody, and Napster.
Not a live performer, not enough hands to play everything at once.
Chopin, Beethoven, Mozart, and all the classical masters.
Jean Michel JarrÃ, Tangerine Dream, Vangelis,
Mike Oldfield, Robert Miles
A good old fanshioned piano and my Yamaha keyboard for composing, then transposing and arranging on the PS2. Recording and remixing on my Laptop.
I donÂt use samples that one gets in most music programms, because I need to break them down to their individual notes. I like to have a melody in most cases. So it takes me a while before I have the finished result.
