A soaring, melancholic/nostalgic theme. Dark, but with an inner force, perhaps a glorious past or a tremendous sacrifice. Patriotic, honorable and sombre.

Although Tom identifies himself as classical-based composer, his musical background differs a bit from common educational path. He grew up in southern Poland and graduated in 1999 from Silesian Technical University in Gliwice with a degree in computer engineering. It was quite a natural consequence of his youthful, technocratic deviation. Nowadays, that's sure - he's not a technocrat at all. Rather than a life passion, he considers the computer science as a source of his keep. For more than 10 years he was working as a programmer for one of the Polish leading interactive agencies where he found his technical knownledge and sense of art useful. He's freelancer now.
But considering the music, he started taking piano lessons at the age of 8. He is also saxophone player, but most of the time he focuses on composition. A few years ago he graduated from Katowice Music Academy (composition & arrengement) too. His experience in this domain ranges in various musical styles from electronic-beat to strictly classical music and sacral art. Professionaly Tom scored dozens of multimedia presentations, websites and games.
