Richard Horowitz is internationally known for creating a unique sonic language that fuses together his roots in classical, jazz and electronic music with the intensity of the trance music he first experienced in Morocco. He plays keyboards, percussion and the ney. He has worked with tribal, classical and popular musicians from North Africa to Indonesia and has collaborated with Sussan Deyhim since the early eighties.
He has scored many feature films, receiving Golden Globe and Los Angeles Film Critics awards for his work on The Sheltering Sky directed by Bernardo Bertolucci. Other scores include Oliver Stone's Any Given Sunday (BMI Award), Sundance Grand Jury Prize winner, Three Seasons directed by Tony Bui and produced by Harvey Keitel, Jason Kliot and Joana Vincente, and Lakota Woman directed by Frank Pierson produced by Jane Fonda.
He has recently completed the scores for the film Les Amants de Mogador starring Max von Sydow and David and Layla starring David Moscow and Shiva Rose. He is currently producing Tcheky Karyo's first CD for Universal Music France, scoring and co-starring in Beautiful Child directed by Fabritzio Cheisa and working with Sussan Deyhim on various projects including a new opera Zarathustra's Mother and a new album with The Mad Man Band.
