The IT Crowd

The Game of the hit C4 TV series, I was asked to emulate early '90s PC audio, complete with windows style sounds, and general MIDI theme tune.

The Alien at the Bottom of the Garden

For C4's Generation XXL series, this is an educational healthy eating game for children. I was composer and sound designer for this project.

Rather Difficult Game

I was asked to compose vintage music for this retro E4 game, I opted for a 1920's vaudeville jazz band sound, with a gramaphone quality.

Captcha Invaders

For E4 games. A traditional game with a modern twist.  I wanted to mix old with new, so I combined a 'space invaders' style sound with a full orchestral 'Mars attacks' style theme.

Space Cannibals

A parody of '80s cartoons, I went for a 'Battle of the planets' style soundtrack, full brass theme, with strings, jazz flute and funk backing band.

Janey Thomson's Marathon

The controversial arcade running game, recreated in its original glory! This game required accurate retro arcade machine sounds and music to go with the authentic visuals. I used a combination of square wave generators and SID emulators to achieve this.

 

Sound Design

Nearly all Tom’s work involves some sort of sound design. Whether it’s simple foley, background scenes, or completely new sound creation, most projects from TV, film, animation and in particular video games will need an element of sound design from the composer.

Tom uses a number of techniques and tools to create the perfect sounds for the image. Location recording, traditional foley techniques and a vast array of software trickery to capture the most elusive of sounds...
