Thomas Foster is a London-based composer. His compositional approach takes off from spectral thinking, exploring the limits of human perception as well as perceived depth in music. Indeterminacy and improvisation also contribute to his work.
In 2020 he wrote his first opera, The Decline and Fall of Practically Everybody, which was due to be premiered at the Royal College of Music in May 2020. This year also marks his first sound installation, Ortolan - a series of interactive sound spaces exploring the death of the Ortolan Bunting.
In 2019 he launched the Unheard concert series. With support from Arts Council England, these concerts aim to rescue contemporary music from the concert hall and present it to new audiences, made up predominantly of non-concert-goers. www.thomasfostermusic.com
