Richard Vreeland, otherwise known by his stage name Disasterpeace, is quickly becoming Hollywood’s “go-to” film and video game composer thanks to his memorable and striking electronic production. The Staten Island-native is being referenced as a modern day Vangelis meets Trent Reznor, which makes sense once you hear his body of work.
Vreeland first became interested in music thanks to his stepfather who was a music director at their church. He quickly became infatuated with drums at a young age before eventually learning guitar and beginning to write music at age 17.
Disasterpeace has designed, scored, and programmed both sound and music related projects in areas everywhere from video games, film, television, and theater. In 2012 he composed the soundtrack for the game Fez, which had an electronic/80s' chiptune style that grabbed the attention of acclaimed director David Robert Mitchell. This lead to his most notable project yet, which was his work on the 2015 film, It Follows. He currently has over 50 album credits to his name and resides in Los Angeles, California.
