Tristan de Liège is an electronic/downtempo artist based in Los Angeles, California. He writes and produces under several monikers, including Thoma (duo with Benjamin Hill) and Tethys (post-classical experiments with a changing cast of string musicians). He’s also contributed ambient music to the independent game Faeria. He has released three albums (two as Thoma) on Emancipator’s Loci Records: The Diver (2016), Thoma (2017), and Salt Spring (2019).
Tristan has completed 8 solo albums: Usawa, Maisha, Kosame, The Diver, Everything We Are, Tamalpais, Into the Bloom, and Frontiers, each with their own feel, inspirations, and cast of guest musicians. He also has two albums as Tethys, I and II, as well as a string quartet tribute to II.
The neoclassical experiments that Tristan explored with his Tethys project have continued into 2021 with a collaborative album with violinist Gregory Allison, entitled A Light for Dark Moments on Gregory's newly created Holy Volcano label.
Thoma returned with new material in late 2021, the album Ikiru that showcases playful and cinematic strings and woodwinds arrangements.
