Thomas Eggensberger is a German-born composer for visual media, brought up in Munich, Germany. Later, he had the pleasure of living in the United Kingdom to study for his undergraduate degree in classical compositions with creative music technology at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama, and later completed his postgraduate degree in Composition for the Screen at Columbia College Chicago. After graduating from Columbia College, Thomas moved to Los Angeles to pursue his career as a composer for visual media.
Currently, Thomas is actively working in Los Angeles as a freelance composer and orchestrator and has started a sample library business (Green Light District) with two of his colleagues. They make tools for film, TV and game composers that enable them to play sounds and sound effects on their keyboard for the purpose of scoring a film, TV show or game. They have been extremely happy with they’re feedback so far and have had they’re sounds played and used on AAA games, Netflix/HBO films. They look forward to grow they’re business and really have an impact on the development of visual media music. They whole heartily believe that inspiring tools can really help the creativity and work flow of music professionals and can help contribute massively to the success of a product.
In the past, Thomas has had the enormous pleasure of working with the late composer Jóhann Jóhannsson (Arrival, Sicario, The Theory Of Everything, Prisoners) in Berlin, Germany, on one of his last films Mandy starring Nicolas Cage, Andrea Riseborough and Linus Roache. During the same time period, He also had the pleasure of working with recent Grammy, Emmy, Academy Award winning composer and musician Hildur Gúdnadottír who he worked for on Mary Magdalene, starring Rooney Mara, Joaquin Phoenix, and Chiwetel Ejiofor.
“Working with such musical legends really shaped me as a person and particularly as an artist/composer and continues to inspire my music on a daily basis.
It helps my business and my own personal music to keep up with the developments of modern cinema and helps create the tools for future generations of visual media professionals.” says Thomas
