Peter Thomas is a German composer/arranger. He was born in Breslau (Silesia) on December 1st, 1925, and his active career spanned more than 50 years between 1955 and 2006. He is known for his TV and film soundtracks (such as ‘Raumpatrouille’, the Edgar Wallace movies film series, and the Jerry Cotton film series). The restored Brandenburg Gate in Berlin was re-opened in 2002 with a live version of the main theme of the “Raumpatrouille”-soundtrack. In the first direction of actor George Clooney, Confessions of a Dangerous Mind (2002), he used three tracks of Peter Thomas’ music for German Edgar Wallace movies of the 1960s in their original mono versions. For some of his exceptional scores Thomas used a self-developed musical instrument called “ThoWiephon”, today being exhibited in the “Deutsche Museum” in Munich, standing near the famous Theremin, also being used in many movies.
