Attaining hypnotic, fluid worlds of sound, Richard Pike’s music explores themes of repetition, stasis, regeneration, and rebirth.


A multi-disciplinary composer, sound artist, singer as well as label curator, his practice lies at the intersections of experimental, ambient, techno, jazz and hybrid orchestral.


Richard’s work is often described as uncategorisable, crossing the worlds of post-rock, indie and art pop with his act PVT (Warp Records), modern New Age Jazz expressions with his trio Forgiveness (Gondwana Records), and a breadth of energetic narratives across his award-nominated TV soundtracks, ranging from live strings, solo piano, to pure analog synthesis. Bringing to mind contemporaries Oneohtrix Point Never, Anna Meredith and Bobby Klric.


He is regarded for the intimate world-building in his practice of slow, meditative music under the moniker Deep Learning. His latest album ‘Evergreen’ featured on Bandcamp’s Best Electronic, and has recently supported UK luminaries James Holden and Gold Panda. Nominated for an AACTA Award for his first ever TV score for Romper Stomper, he has been the head composer on 4 major Australian TV series productions. 


Scoring healing music for psychedelic therapy with Wavepaths, he also curates Salmon Universe Records and has been championed by BBC's Hannah Peel, Mary Anne Hobbs & Tom Ravenscroft, Fact Magazine, Electronic Sound Mag, KEXP Radio, The Quietus and many more.


He is also sought after for installation work, including with London's United Visual Artists and Sydney's Collider, and has made music for brands including Adidas, Fedex, Cartier, Hyundai and Nike.
