An original Amiga demoscene oldskooler and current video games composer, the name TDK was originally active in the early 90’s writing catchy and melodic chiptunes for the likes of Anthrox, Crystal and Melon Dezign. Having 'retired' from the scene in 1993 I went on to write the music for such games as Wing Commander (Amiga), Duke Nukem Total Meltdown, Populous: The Beginning and Dungeon Keeper 2.
The advent of the CD-Rom format, and therefore music licensing, threatened my role as a composer so I moved into sound design within my favourite video game genre, driving games.
As a self confessed petrol head, working for Codemasters from 2008, I headed up the audio team on the DiRT, Formula 1 and GRID franchises until 2015 I went 'full circle' back to composition and wrote the OST for F1 2015. Since then, I've penned the soundtracks for Overlord: Fellowship of Evil, the Indie game D/Generation HD - which I originally worked on in 1993, and F1 2016. I''ve just finished up on F1 2017.
Never leaving the chip sound behind, 'TDK' was brought out of retirement at the end of 2012 with the release of my first album, Reawakening, and I've since fused my love of chip with my passion for the electric violin to perform a unique chiptune-violin set at SuperByte 2013, Chipfest, and Nintendoom 3.0.
I'm now back writing in a number of different styles, but perhaps my main love of 70's analog synths may take charge of what I write.
Either way, TDK is back! Flit Kills Moths is back! (until Esso sue for brand copyright).
One final thing; if you enjoy what you hear please consider purchasing one of my albums on Bandcamp for little more than a cup of expensive High Street coffee. Thank you :)
