Richard’s Piano work, The Jester’s Waltz, received Honorable Mention (only American awarded!) in the most recent Opus Dissonus Competition. World-renowned pianist, Artur Cimirro, will be recording the work and performing it on recital programs in order to disseminate the piece internationally!

In  2014, Bidwell's Path was designated a Finalist / Instrumental Music Category in the UK Songwriting Contest. More recently, Richard's song Warrior's Hymn was designated a Finalist.  4 of his other songs are considered Semi-Finalists: Stefan's Song, Chicxulub: Dinosaur Musings on the Meaning of Life,  Losing Love & Faerie's Embrace.

STEALING TIME Richard recently scored this dramatic feature film from South Africa directed by Oscar-nominated director, Darrell Roodt.
