de Liège (formerly Stratus) and Benjamin Hill (Askanse) to “bring together
their creative abilities and challenge themselves beyond their solo efforts.”
Relocating from a small island near Vancouver in British Columbia to Los
Angeles, the duo recorded their debut full-length with an array of synths—
with a strong focus on modular synthesis—samples, processed acoustic
instruments, woodwinds, and upright bass. More recently, Benjamin moved
to Detroit and new Thoma material was crafted there, drawing more on the
techno and house roots that are so pervasive in the Detroit music scene.
