Thomas was born in 1976 in Italy, and loved music and computers already as a small child. When about 8 years old, he was programming his own computer games. For this reasons it was natural that at some point (when 15 years old in 1991) he began making music with computers. Before internet got wide-spread, there was another (kind of underground) way to communicate with computers: bulletin board systems. Thomas distributed his works this way, and got in contact with the so-called demo scene. He thus joined groups of creative people, and with them made kind of multimedia creations (so-called demos and intros), some of which won competitions, or got close to it.
The chance to get more known came with the internet. Since Thomas entered the internet world, in 1999, his music started to be downloaded much more than before. From september 1999 to june 2007, his tunes have been downloaded over 1 million times (counting both completed and incomplete downloads and streams).
In year 1998, Thomas unfortunately got injured at the spinal cord, and still now uses a wheel-chair. This has not hindered his musical activity; in fact he got active more than before. Between 1991 and 1998, Thomas composed about 40 tunes; between 1999 and 2005, the number of compositions has raised to over 200. And meanwhile he also took music lessons (harmony, composition, flute, guitar, keyboard), some of which are still going on.
Apart from composing, Thomas likes improvisation. Instead of learning to play other people's music with the guitar and keyboard, he prefers to become skillful at improvising his own music.
Thomas isn't bound to a sinlge genre, but likes to experiment. Some of his greatest influences have probably been: Vangelis, Mike Oldfield, Enya, Alan Parsons Project, Decoryah, Astral Projection, Kit Watkins, Em:t label releases, Amiga-scene musicians.
He is currently in search for a record label to publish his works.
