Thomas Cade is an emerging sound artist and electronic musician based out of London, UK and Toronto, Canada. With almost a decade of composition, production and performance work already under his belt, Thomas’ sound grew up on a slew of guitar-based effects processors in grimy back-room venues along the Montreal-Toronto corridor. A pupil of philosophy and insomnia, his genre-defying sonic style blends elements of cascading minimal-tech, tribal polyrhythm and experimental dark electro house to deliver gravitating bass-heavy grooves pierced with tightly complex electronics and his clear but timid vocals.
Thomas’ meticulous and highly nuanced focus in anti-traditional sound engineering finds its feet through an ever-evolving array of processors, synthesizers, loopers, midi-based controllers and progressive digital production techniques, blissfully exploring the dark and meditative fringes between technical, cerebral and somatic experience. Coupled with his fluid integration of abstract interactive visuals, Thomas’ live performances are nothing short of transcendental shows of force.
Recent work includes an interactive soundscape for A Place To Reflect (Nuit Blanche-Toronto), producing massive volumes of noise art at the Victoria and Albert Museum for the Moving Forest (Furtherfield-London) and a highly anticipated electronic A/V performance at New Forms Festival 11 (Vancouver). Thomas has been busy at play in the spectrum, earning an MA in Interactive Media at Goldsmiths College, UK and releasing his debut LP with Hybridity Music. Greenwich Mean Time came out in February of 2013.
