Soundtracking The Void
We are pleased to announce composer Thomas Ragsdale with be the latest addition to the bloop roster.
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 music was also used in Adam Curtis’ groundbreaking BBC documentary ‘HyperNormalisation’ to great effect alongside the likes of Brian Eno, Burial and Apex Twin.
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. He’s so far shared stages with the likes of Her Name Is Calla, Danielle de Picciotto & Alexander Hacke (of Einstürzende Neubauten) and toured with fellow ambient electronica outfit Sunset Graves.
Ragsdale is also a member of electronica outfit worriedaboutsatan and a producer of dance floor heavy techno as Winter Son. The music produced under his own name wanders through introspective, pared down soundscapes, which evolve from fragile ambience to crushing intensity.
” Soundtracking The Void” Will be airing every 1st Tuesday of the month 14:00 – 16:00 / UK Time.
