Yorkshire based composer Thomas Ragsdale melds cinematic electronica with immersive soundscapes and blissful techno workouts.

Spending his formative years composing a varied catalogue of music for TV, film and advertising companies, his gradual shift into the world of performing music is one that's quickly won acclaim from the likes of Resident Advisor and FACT. His music has been featured with great effect in two groundbreaking BBC documentaries by Adam Curtis including the acclaimed 'HyperNormalisation', where his track 'Warning Mass' was featured extensively alongside the likes of Brian Eno, Burial and Aphex Twin. His music has also found its way onto commercials by BMW, Prada and Twitter.

Having composed and released soundtracks for feature films premiering at Film4's prestigious FightFest and EPs with lavish packaging backed with personally intimate subject matters, Thomas' music evokes spacious resonance and emotional response.

His approach to writing and producing is built around a minimalist framework, choosing to rely heavily on organic instrumentation overlaid with subtle electronic elements, whilst live performances take on a more visceral approach with tense peaks of sound in front of a full live visual show. Thomas so far shared stages on tours and supports with a diverse array of musicians, such as Tropic Of Cancer, Daniel Lanois, Esben & The Witch, Einstürzende Neubauten and Kara-Lis Coverdale.
