Thanasis Lightbridge (yes, I’m writing this myself…play along) is a composer, sound designer and a multimedia artist living with a black cat named Batman in Thessaloniki, Greece.
Born under the sign of Leo in 1978, he developed an early interest on all things creative both in the visual and the music arts. Starting out as a graphic artist in his teen years, he was eventually drawn into electronic music and music technology influenced by pioneers like Jean Michel Jarre, Vangelis, Yello, Kraftwerk and more. In addition to music he was always fascinated by all things science fiction like movies, comics and video games.
Discovering the immense power and energy of heavy metal music was a pivotal moment in his career because it led to the idea of creating 3 hybrid music projects in which he would explore the fusion of metal and electronics.
Being a disgusting control-freak he always choses the Do It Yourself route regarding producing and promoting his art. He maintains the independent record label electronicARTmetal Records for his music releases.
Right after he finished his master’s degree on “High Performance Computer Systems for Audio-Visual Productions and Education”, he started directing and producing music video clips and a video-blog series named “The Lightbridge Spacecast”. The videos feature guerilla low-budget production techniques and circle around his music news and studio-life. Most of them also include guest appearances by his beloved cat Batman.
Always in the lookout for new creative endeavors he is also involved with T-Shirt design, website and e-shop design, photography, art digitization techniques, audio restoration, archiving and interactive music application programming.
He lately ventured into the world of music and art for video games. He composed the music and sound effects for the casual games Pop Corny and Flycraft. In Flycraft he additionally created all the graphic art of the game. He leads the team of Spaceonion Musicworks who specialize in music and sound effects for video games and multimedia.
