// About Suntapes //

Suntapes is Tomas Vanderplaetse, musician / composer / producer. His compositions are atmospheric soundtracks for weird films and for mysterious places. Check out some of Suntapes music on this site or on Soundcloud 

Suntapes produces soundtracks for any kind of films & video, whether it is for a feature film, documentary, commercial or even for an 15 sec Instagram video. It's all about finding the right musical atmosphere for each visual piece. In a more poetic way one could say that Suntapes sees sound. 

As much as recording in the studio, Suntapes loves to perform live. As a classically schooled pianist Tomas developed his own style on the piano throughout the years. While traveling he gathered and learned to play a lot of ethnic instruments. In a live setting he combines piano sounds, analog synthesizers and acoustic instruments in a flexible looping set-up. Read the blog about recent "one-man-soundtrack" performances. 

Suntapes performances come with live visuals by VJ Kasper Jordaens. He uses video images that Suntapes has shot in different places in the world and transforms them live. This results in an immersive audio-visual journey throughout different places in the world. Together they aim for maximum interaction between music and images. 

Since 2015 Tomas is the keyboard player for Belgiums rock legend Arno. Tomas has accompanied him for about 200 shows throughout Europe so far. Next up is recording his new record.
