octoma — Christian Thomas

Music is the architecture of time.

Christian Thomas

It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the website of Studio Octoma. For many years, I tailored my style alongside artists, stage directors and distinguished creators. Music is alive, timeless, itself transforming at the discretion of the projects.

My Music

Sometimes fictitious, sometimes current, it also can be supportive. That is to say that it supports the unfolding of the drama as well in the plays as in the films. In that instance, it can be rhythmical, dynamic or ever-evolving. What interests me above all, is the impact caused by music as a universal language.

Contact Me
Whether for concert music, television, movie, theater, publicity, new media or special events, I invite you to contact me for all your musical needs in composition, arrangement or orchestration.

Composer, Orchestrator, Arranger and Pianist

Since my early childhood, I have been fascinated by music. Without a doubt because it brings me closer to nature, to my own true nature. Although its fabric is a well structured and organized matter, it firstly remains sensorial. I am convinced that its presence and its daily practice is essential for our lives.

 

I have been a composer, an orchestrator, and arranger and a pianist for more than thirty years. I lived in Europe (France, Suisse, Belgique et Monaco) at many instances to further my studies and practice my profession. I completed my musical training at the Conservatoire de musique de Québec as well as at the Consevatoire de musique de Strasbourg.

 

The emotional quality is for me the most important stake! With the passing of time, I realized that my versatility is the crucial actor strengthening my musical signature, either classical or contemporary. I always address my projects with a fresh ear for I believe in boldness. In my approach, I am truly committed and I constantly seek new stylistic proposals.
