Thomas Waltrich is musician, composer and sound engineer based in Naarm/Melbourne.
Known for his intense performance energy and artistic sensibilities, Thomas Waltrich enables the artists he works with to realise the full potential of their visions. The diversity of his experience ranging from pop singer-songwriters, experimental bands, punk and expressionist groups has allowed him to craft his artistry embracing the weird and wonderful. Seeking to push his physical limitations as a musician to expand his spectrum for compositional decisions.
After studying at Music and Arts at Monash University, Thomas Waltrich taught in Berlin, toured throughout Germany and Denmark whilst composing Tired Of Wisdom's debut album, 'Anywhere But Here'. Then returned to Melbourne to focus on original bands, Tired Of Wisdom and Ancient Animal Orchestra, whilst recording and touring with other original acts.
The desire for authenticity drives the ethos of Thomas' musicality. Composing music without boundaries, navigating physical limitations of the drums and voice, and the use of various room and ambient microphone techniques when recording.
