Suntapes is the alias of Belgian composer and multi-instrumentalist, Tomas Vanderplaetse. Growing up, the grand piano played an important part in his life from a young age and it still is extremely relevant in his compositions today. Whilst travelling the globe he became obsessed with gathering and learning unusual acoustic and electronic instruments from Asia and the Middle east. This process has allowed him to evoke the atmospheres he felt in many of these places in the world and bring them to the front of his artistic creations. He also uses rare vintage keyboards and effects he has collected over his life to add to the warm and dreamy sound that is Suntapes.
