G.T. Thomas has performed from Seattle, to NYC, Amsterdam, and beyond and collaborated with artists like Fleet Foxes, Benny Sings, The Metropole Orchestra, and members of The B-52s, Steely Dan, and The Free Design. Her own live act has ranged from a pop orchestra of 13 people, to performing as a one-woman-band (playing multiple instruments simultaneously while singing).
She also fulfills commissions to compose and perform minimalist, meditative, and sometimes danceable excursions on her semi-modular synth system, and presents workshops and guest lectures on things like composition and performance process, including past presentations for Dutch Modular Festival, Bakersfield College Panorama Creative Music Summit, Byrdcliffe Artist Residency, Frequency Shift, Popsport Nederland, and SUNY New Paltz Advanced Electronic Music Program.
