He's gained a following from the independent film community, including positive reviews from Filmmaker Magazine, Moviepilot, and Entertainment Weekly. Rich also comes from a video game scoring background, and while he has credits for Runner2: Future Legend of Rhythm Alien and the upcoming Hyper Light Drifter, he being best known for the 8-bit ambient soundtrack of FEZ, a popular independent game that was featured in Indie Game: The Movie. Vreeland began his college career in 2006 at Berklee College of Music and graduated in 2009 with a Bachelor’s of Music in Music Synthesis.
