Richard deCosta learned to read and write both music and computer software at the age of 10. Over the next decade, he immersed himself in an intense self-directed study using any music theory and composition books he could get his hands on, and the scores and recordings of composers like Wagner, Stravinsky, Bartok, Berg, and Ravel. Starting in the mid-90's, Richard became heavily involved in Electronic music, and today he writes everything from full orchestra and opera pieces to Techno, Avant-Garde, Jazz, Trance, Hip-Hop, Organ, Big Band, Choral and Traditional African music.

Pink Floyd meets heavy electronica. Rich pads, a crying, pleading lead guitar, crisp drums and rhythm guitars. A barren wasteland or a night city scene, crime scene, ambient lab evidence sifting, CSI:NYC, or a space ship traversing the vast reaches of space. Instrumental, Electronic, Industrial (pending)
Thumping hardcore industrial with distorted guitars, a heavy, steady kick and full synths. Intermediate FX and strange sounds add an air of mystery and suspense. A killer distorted guitar solo great for wild car chase, crime in progress, tension building, flying, soaring, swaggering, dark and bold. Instrumental, Dangerous, Edgy Music
Three eerily dissonant piano lines intertwine, distant, distorted guitars and strings weave in and out menacingly. Hypnotic, chaotic and very creepy. Crime scene exploration, supernatural investigations, psychological suspense. Instrumental, Dangerous, Mysterious Music
Pure weapons-grade industrial electronic carnage! Massive bass line, psychotic strings, hard, driving edgy drums, timpani swells, and a massive build up in the B-section with ticking clocks, psychotic sounds whirring around, strings ramp back up into the sinister, diabolical, explosive finale. Instrumental, Dangerous, Dangerous Music
Dark, grinding post-apocalyptic industrial grind. Hypnotic drumming, heavy guitars, and pulsating synths combine to produce an amazing sense of a bleak future, where machine rules over man, and technology infects. Instrumental, Dangerous, Mysterious Music
Spine-tingling orchestra and choir. Mystery surrounds every note, tremolo and pizzicato strings with bassoons creates an ethereal atmosphere. Ghosts and ghouls lurk inside, so beware! Instrumental, Dangerous, Dark Music
Pulsing high-tech synths with rhythmic tuned noise, ethnic drums, an African choir and some mean synth percussion add up to a killer sound punch! Climaxes then settles to a 4/4 synth vamp; very bold and full. Instrumental, Dangerous, Dramatic Chase
Thumping hardcore industrial with distorted guitars, a heavy, steady kick and full synths. Intermediate FX and strange sounds add an air of mystery and suspense. A killer distorted guitar solo great for wild car chase, crime in progress, tension building, flying, soaring, swaggering, dark and bold. Instrumental, Dangerous, Dramatic Chase
An exotic, spicy blend of orchestral and electronic instruments. A middle Eastern feel permeates this dramatic, rhythmic, moody, suggestive piece. A trek through the desert, a lone group of survivors on an island, an trip to a strange country. Instrumental, Dangerous, Apprehensive Music
Minimalistic Lovecraft-inspired atmosphere. A mind out of time reaches across the eons of endless space and communicates in auditory riddles. Unpredictable, chaotic, but always the steady ululating transmission is received. Instrumental, Dangerous, Apprehensive Music
A dark Gothic choir opens this heavy, industrial thundering piece. Hard hitting drums, heavy guitars and synths and a full orchestra combine into a force of terrible power. Middle section backs down to a melancholy after-battle feel, then ramps up again for a full finish. Instrumental, Dangerous, Dark Music
Malevolent, haunted, ominous, minimalistic orchestral deviance. Discordant piano like an evil clock chiming the hours til death incarnates. High, dissonant strings and woodwinds screech softly while the wind howls. Instrumental, Dangerous, Dark Music
Intense buildups, swirling, maddening strings tremble beneath the relentless rhythms of the timpani and cymbal swells. The entire orchestra seems to battle itself! Powerful, driving tension-builder, racing, tense car chase, bad guys on the run, dark forest horror, immensely frightening & terrorizing, Instrumental, Dangerous, Mysterious Music
A haunting lead guitar with strings and steady, smooth low drumming evoke depression era America, the dust bowl. Uncrowded and uncomplicated, this piece at once captures and takes you away. 1930s retro hard times, moving on, second chances, recession, rehab, slow pensive sentimental lonely. Instrumental, Dangerous, Edgy Music
Turn on the lights, there something in the corner! Dark, creepy, foreboding, pizzicato strings with sinister flutes and brass, buildups, hits and a relentlessly eerie melody hover over the top of this orchestral mind trip. Murder, crime, Sci Fi monsters, aliens, chase scene. Menacing & aggressive. Instrumental, Dangerous, Dark Music
Steady, menacing ethnic drums drive this slow orchestral dark ritual. The tremolo violins and brasses leer in and out, the whole completes the hypnotic atmosphere. Horror flick, home invasion, stalker music. Aggressive, menacing, action chases, dark woods, melodrama, crime in progress, CSI. Instrumental, Dangerous, Dark Music
