COMPOSER // WRITER // SOUND DESIGNER

Eric Matthew Richardson (b. 1992) is a composer, writer, and sound designer based in Chicago, Illinois.

After graduating with a degree in Sound Recording Technology from DePaul University’s School of Music, Eric experimented with multidisciplinary composition techniques for immersive theatre, independent video games, and award-winning short films.

He refined his musical palate from an early age through participation in multiple bands, classical ensembles, and private instruction ranging from Double Bass to Jazz Piano. With each of his projects, he seeks to amplify the human aspects of the work by leaning into the complexity of emotion and the hidden qualities of life.

Eric enjoys taking on exciting and innovative projects; whether through collaboration with directors, producers, and other artists, or exploring his own personal work.
