Tom Third has worked as a professional composer for over 15 years. He studied film and new media at The Ontario College of Art and Design, and his work in experimental film, performance and audio led to a collaboration with Meryn Cadell on the cult AM radio hit THE SWEATER. In 1991 he signed an international recording deal with Nettwerk Records that has yielded three critically acclaimed electronica CD’s, TRANSCONTINENTAL WEEKEND (1992), PRIMORDIA(1994) and CONTINUOUS CITY (2001), on Nettwerk’s experimental sub label, Nutone.

As a film composer, Tom’s music employs an innovative combination of traditional instruments with electronic and digitally manipulated sounds. He co-wrote songs sung by Gary Busey and rapper Ice-T for the feature JACOB TWO TWO AND THE HOODED FANG in 1999, and then scored the feature 4 DAYS starring Colm Meaney the same year. An ongoing commitment to the short and experimental film community has resulted in soundtracks for award winning films and installations that have been shown at film festivals and art galleries worldwide

In 2004 Tom won the Volkswagen Score Competition sponsored by the Berlin Film Festival, and juried by Walter Murch, David Holmes, and Martin Steyer.

Tom has also worked in the demanding world of television. In 2000, he scored 22 episodes of the American television series QUEER AS FOLK. Based on the popular UK series of the same name, this ongoing Showtime series is currently playing to great acclaim in many countries, and won the MPSE Golden Reel award for music editing in 2000.

    Just finished watching ReGenesis season 3, as Leo, I enjoyed the background music you composed for this serie. Very captivating... Do you think an album could be released this music?

    Loved what you did for ReGenesis - and now I find: Continuous City isn't too bad either. Wonder what you've been up to recently.
