|Thomas Laurits Vedel Mogensen|
Thomas Mogensen is a composer and tracker artist from Denmark. Starting out with making music on the Commodore 64 in 1988, he has composed about 1000 tunes on the system alone. In addition, he has also written music for several other computer formats, including a fairly large collection produced using Fasttracker II.
Mogensen got into computers and computer music through his older brother: He had a VIC 20, a Commodore 16, a Commodore 64, and made music in Soundmonitor. Thomas Mogensen first created the instruments for his brother's songs, then composed his own songs, earning him an invitation to his first demogroup, Bones. Later, Jens-Christian Huus, already a popular C64 musician, wanted to get to know Mogensen. Right on their first phonecall, they talked for two hours. At a party in late June 1989, Huus and Klaus Grøngaard showed him JCH's Music-Editor which Mogensen uses to this day. Soon after, Huus and Grøngaard founded a music group, Vibrants, and invited Mogensen, getting his music onto a few games.
Eventually, he expanded his connections to several other groups, including Amok, Bonzai, Conic, Crest, NATO, Noise, The Pulse Magazine Staff, Unitech Designs and Virtual Reality, of which he is currently only associated with Crest and Vibrants. In 1996, Jeroen Tel invited Mogensen into his own group, Maniacs of Noise, which is also devoted to provide music and sound effects for video games.
From 1996 to 1997, Mogensen studied math, but switched to psychology in 1998 and still works as a psychologist.
