Homewood, IL composer Tom Parsons comes from a background of classical piano study. After visiting a recording studio in the early 1970’s with a large ARP system and experimenting with a 2600, Tom decided synthesizers were for him. After acquiring an ARP Axxe and a 4-track tape recorder, he decided to compose a collection of songs which reflected his spirit of experimentation. His first cassette release, “Aesthetics” (1986) was the result. “Pink Sounds From The Purple Plain” followed in 1988, a further exploration into sound collage with an emphasis on synthesis and a nod to the minimalist ambient school. “Child Of The Moon” (1992) was his version of a new-age album, and combined all of his previous styles. After upgrading his studio with the latest digital and virtual synths, Tom just completed "Azure" (2007) his first CD release, “a sonic collage of water colours.” The music is dreamy, introspective, relaxing instrumental electronic music.
Tom performed in New Music Chicago’s Spring Festivals in 1985-86 and appeared in the Discoveries column of May 1988 Keyboard magazine. He received airplay of 3 songs from “Pink Sounds...” on Belgium radio station BRT2. Tom met Robert Moog at a John Eaton concert at the University of Chicago in 1990. He has seen the birth of the synthesizer, MIDI, and digital recording in his lifetime. Yet electronic music is still in its infancy, with much to offer and explore...Ars Longa Vita Brevis
