Thomas Ragsdale

Manchester-based composer Thomas Ragsdale melds cinematic electronica with organic, immersive soundscapes.

Spending his formative years composing a varied catalogue of music for TV, film and advertising companies, his gradual shift into the world of performing solo music is one that’s quickly won acclaim from the likes of Resident Advisor and FACT.

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.
