Thomas Tilly is a musician who uses a microphone and a loudspeaker as his primary instruments of creation.
Focused on the study of the sound environment and interaction with the space in which he exists, his work is inspired both by scientific and experimental musical research. Field Recording according to Thomas Tilly The aim here is not only to record sound but to place the microphone on the same rank as a musical instrument and to consider the situation or context of this instrument in space as a means of composition. His purpose is to subvert the microphone’s role as a communication tool in an effort to apprehend the sound wave differently. Tackling the sense of immateriality that increasingly constitutes and conditions the material; focusing on speaking and using noise as something precious and unique, and confronting this noise with what is called ‘music’, such are the goals of Thomas Tilly’s work.
