T. Reed - Bio/Discography
T. Reed's life-long passion for horror films (and the fusion
of sound to picture) grew exponentially when he started writing and creating music videos with a team of colleagues in the late 1980’s. These collaborations resulted in several music videos appearing alongside artists such as
Nine Inch Nails and Nitzer Ebb on VJ reels distributed to hundreds of nightclubs across the U.S.
With over twenty five years of professional experience in a vast array of industry capacities he developed well rounded experience in the entertainment industry. From graphic artist to grip work on film crews, to creative director and composer, he has worn many hats at any given point and has worked closely with other film/video professionals in commercial and independent scenarios.
Throughout the 1990s, he performed with the industrial metal shock rock band Morpheus Sister, sharing stages with Marilyn Manson, Deftones, Clutch, Love & Rockets, Helmet, Godflesh and others.
T. Reed is currently a composer/sound designer and music producer at TAO X Productions, where he has scored nationally distributed horror films and worked with clients including Adobe, Birkenstock, Intel and others.
