Since the age of 12 when he discovered Nightwish, Tuomas Holopainen has been his favorite composer and his biggest musical influence. Started as part of a Melodic Death metal band until he decided to buy an electric piano and started
learning to play by his own. After half a year he started composing songs with piano and strings and then he realised how Symphonic music expresses him more than any other genre. He left the band then and focused on composing for his new Symphonic Duet/Band Lacrymosa Aeterna with Lady Delwynne (Vamptessa Debbie) as singer. Meanwhile he started composing Library music. He has composed for two Greek shorts in May 2014. Soon after that, he came in contact with indie filmmakers from US and started international collaborations. So far he has composed for 3 shorts and 2 teasers.
