was born 6. June 1966.
With his compositions, Thomas Doss wants to convey a message: the listener should be taken along and at the end of the composition confused, happy, moved or everything at the same time. In any case, he should be touched emotionally in the concert.
Colors and sounds play a major role in Thomas Doss' compositions. Especially the phenomena of the overtone series and the light spectrum. Impressionism and spirituality - not reduced to religions - are central to his compositions. And above all, he celebrates "the silence in music".
Thomas Doss is fascinated by the aspects of time / meter / pulse / tempo, how they work in context, by the secrets that lie behind them and seem to be a kind of key to a better understanding of our existence.
Musically, he doesn't like to be tied to one genre and not even pigeonholed. He loves classical music, but also jazz, folklore and modernity at the same time. All preferences that he can live out in his compositions for symphonic wind orchestra.
He himself speaks of high demands on his musical aesthetics - which, for humanitarian reasons, can be brought into harmony with the fact that he also writes music for children, young people and, above all, amateurs. "Music has to be for everyone ...".
