From his native home close to the Oslo fjord, Norway, Tom made his way to sunny California many years back and now lives and records his music near the expansive beaches of Los Angeles.
Tom and Chris Mancinelli first teamed up with the project Borneo Express in 1994. The album from here to nowhere was released in Norway, as a documentation of his previous band years in Los Angeles. It features performances of many fine Los Angeles musicians, among them guitarist Jimmy Stafford from the group Train and guitar hero Nels Cline of Wilco.
Tom has two worldwide ethno-ambient solo releases on the Virgin/EMI label Cyber Octave, Slowdiver and Sutra Spin. Both were released in the late 1990’s.
In 2001, Tom and Swiss cellist Martin Tillman wrote several musical cues for the Oscar nominated Michael Mann film “Ali” featuring Will Smith. Their track “Odessa” can be heard on the "Ali” soundtrack album and was also used for the 2002 Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City and has been played extensively on radio around the world. They also worked on musical cues for “Pirates of the Caribbean” for Disney.
Tom and Martin have recorded three albums together: Lingo (1996),
Eastern Twin (2000) and Cinematic Volunteer (2001). Eastern
Twin was released
by Unitone Recordings the short-lived label owned by producer great Patrick Leonard (Madonna, Pink Floyd).
In 2001 and 2002 Tom wrote music for 24 episodes of the award winning Norwegian TV Drama Series “Fox Gronland.” He’s currently working on music for a new mini series for Norwegian TV called “Grenseland.”
Besides working as music producer and film/tv composer Vedvik has another exciting project in the fire. Check out the avant garde poptronica group mustfuzz at: www.mustfuzz.com
TwilightArchive is the second collaboration with composer/producer Chris Mancinelli. The music is distinctly “down tempo” with a unique embodiment of diverse sonic textures. A follow up album to this critically acclaimed debut is currently in progress.
