About Thomas Parisch:
A German native making his home in Los Angeles since 2008, Thomas’ work as a composer is a kaleidoscope of European tradition, world music, jazz and the modern scoring techniques of Hollywood, all which have paved the way for him in becoming a leading musical creative for the Chinese-based video game industry. His passion to synthesize new forms of musical expression combined with his love for storytelling made him the perfect fit to join Vivita Zheng as creative director and composer at Unisonar, a company specializing in music publishing and custom music producing. Unisonar’s main mission is bridging cultural boundaries through music.

Thomas’ award-winning credits are as diverse as they come with music for video games, film, television and concert halls.

Other clients include NBC, Disney and TF1 (Europe’s most viewed TV network). He has also collaborated with artists such as Childish Gambino, and his concert work as been performed at festivals like the HEAR NOW Music Festival.
