Ricky began recording songs on a digital 16 track from the age of 10. After initially only recording himself to improve performances, he began to experiment with recording full band arrangements and by the age of 16 had started recording his friend's bands and projects.
The standalone 16 track machine he grew up using (before the introduction of DAWs on computers) instilled a respect for capturing performance and the value of commitment during the recording process. On that machine Bloomfield recorded many of his friends EPs and singles including Chris O'Donnell, Kim Churchill, Tomi Gray, 'Rampage', Adam Fisher and Johnathan Devoy.
As a performer in various different music projects Ricky started recording in many professional studios - 301 Studios (Alexandria), Hercules Street, Damien Gerards, Sony Studios, Mainstreet Studios, Origami Studios and The Sonic Factory.
At the age of 18 he moved to Sydney and his first job there was at The Sonic Factory, setting up for bands by day and sitting in on mixes by night. It was at the Sonic Factory that Bloomfield began to develop skills as a recording and mixing engineer.
In 2014 Bloomfield started a music school and set up a small studio to record students and their bands. By this stage he had already begun producing records for various artists but it was at the music school that Ricky's skills as a producer were honed.
In the years that followed Ricky produced hundreds of recordings for students, artists and their bands and refined his methods; experimenting with different workflows, microphones, gear, a 32 channel console and different DAWs.
Ricky continues to record, mix and produce records for various projects, artists and bands.
