Film Music Library
The above player contains a sample of compositions from Richard's Film Music Library. Over the years this library has grown to include a variety of styles that were originally produced for specific film or commercial applications but some were never used for various reasons. Richard is not one to leave a piece of inspiration and creativity on the floor just because it didn't suit someone else's needs. As a result, many of these musical pieces have been further developed from the initial demos into new compositions. Other pieces remain exactly as they were produced, but either way, Richard maintains the complete licensing for this library.
If you hear something you would like to use for a film, TV show, or any other commercial application, feel free to contact Richard. He's always happy to talk to creative people doing projects that require good music.

Richard Zeier - composer
Richard has been composing music for film and commercial projects for many years since completing the Film Scoring program at UCLA Extension. His experience as a guitar/bass player (more recently drums), recording engineer, and music producer provides a passion and depth that can be felt throughout his music that crosses multiple genres.
Over the years he has put together a really great recording studio in Hollywood that features some of the equipment that he designed or modified himself. Not partial to either vintage or bleeding-edge technology, but making use of whatever tools are most effective for creating the most authentic and compelling sound based on time and budgetary constraints.

Given the choice between scoring a "quality" film verses a formula-driven film with a guaranteed payday, Richard will always leave money on the table for the opportunity to be part of an artistically satisfying project. It's not about numbers but what makes an impact and has a lasting effect on the peoples psyche.

Richard is currently working on new projects and upon completion an updated reel will be added.
