Thomas Bingham is a France-based composer. Born in Paris and partly raised in New York, he started playing piano at the age of 4.
Today, Thomas writes music for multimedia projects – recent ones include Trenc d'Alba (2023), directed by Anna Llarguès and nominated at the Festival de Cannes (La Cinef), a project he worked on with Amanda Fandos. He has received recognition for his work on film, as a recipient of the Best Original Music award at the 2017 International Special Effects Festival in Montpellier, France for his score on the animated short Yemanja. Other projects include working as a musician on the three time Oscar-nominated film Flee (2021), directed by Jonas Poher Rasmussen.
Thomas graduated Magna Cum Laude from the Master’s of Music in Scoring for Film, Television and Video Games program at the Berklee College of Music. Before attending Berklee, he studied musicology and English literature at the University of Geneva, and music theory at the Geneva Haute école de musique. During his time there, he also studied multimedia scoring with Emmanuel Fratianni (Video Games Live, Advent Rising), while working as a concert band conductor and choir accompanist.
Classically trained as a pianist, Thomas writes music that draws elements from neo-classical, post-minimal and ambient influences.
