Thomas Watkiss is a multi-disciplinary artist perhaps most known for his experimental record releases. The recordings are paired with his photography and prints — giving the listener an intimate visual setting to the roaming ambient soundscapes. Since 2007, Thomas has released five full-length records starting with the Ancestor 7”. The e.p. was realized while working in Boston after a period of expatriation and described by Doug Mousrock of Dusted Magazine as “clinical performance aligns with a sense of darkness and mystery”. Thomas’ 2008 Ancestor – “Phase I: Silence” was met with critical acclaim and described as “Projecting an icy grandeur” by Steve Holtje for Dusty Wright’s Culture Catch and considered “rich in integrity” by Heathen Harvest. (Brooklyn NY)
