Thomas Egeskov Petersen is a Danish composer, sound designer and programmer. Around 1986, he started programming on the Commodore 64. He immediately became good at programming on the C64 and designed his own sound driver for it. In February 1990, he joined Jeroen Tel's music group, Maniacs of Noise. In the 90s, he was composing music in both trackers and MIDI sequencers. In 2005, he returned to C64 programming and designed another sound driver and an editor called SID Factory, based on a popular driver and editor developed from 1988 to 1991 by Jens-Christian Huus (also known as JCH).

Petersen has worked for a various amount of game developers as a sound designer including Funcom, Kiloo, and Ziggurat Interactive. He now currently works at Progressive Media as a programmer.
