The releases are paired with his photography and prints, giving the listener an intimate visual setting to the roaming atmospheres which work with themes of bio-diversity and climate acceleration. Thomas constructs work with a range of sources and instruments including field recordings and bass guitars.
This year, for his first solo exhibit at Black Diamond Gallery in Brooklyn titled "Ecosystems", Thomas paired 11 new paintings with soundscapes based on recordings and photographs from his residency in Iceland and his native Pennsylvania. Each of the recordings were performed live during the exhibit this February and March.

Francesco is a sound lover who graduated in electronic music at Conservatorio G.F. Ghedini Cuneo. His work is based on electroacoustic compositions, live performances and sound design for moving images (documentaries and movies).
In his music, he mostly uses digital and analog elaboration of recorded sounds, with the aim to give sound a meaning, paying attention to perception aspects. He is attracted by musique concrète and from the act of recording sounds, played or from the environment.
Francesco is still working to know his different faces of musical identity better. The work is never ending and lot of fun.
