Thomas Frühwacht is a composer of electronic music. In October 2010 he started releasing his music under the moniker Earlyguard, which is simply the English translation of his last name. Thomas' musical palette consists of longform ambient soundscapes, experimental piano works and cinematic electronica, created with a sense for minimalism and musical abstraction.

His music was chosen as soundtrack for “Welcome to the Anthropocene”, a short film about the state of our planet by the Canadian non-profit organisation Globaïa. “Welcome to the Anthropocene” opened the UN’s Rio+20 summit on sustainable development in June 2012. The summit was the largest United Nations meeting to date.

In 2013 Globaïa have chosen Thomas' music again for the short films “Water in the Anthropocene“ and “Climate Change - The State of the Science“ - both critically acclaimed and controversial discussed in times of climate science denial.

From December 5, 2014 to September 30, 2016 "Welcome to the Anthropocene“ - in a German version - was part of a special exhibition at the Deutsches Museum, Munich, with more than 170,000 visitors.

In 2015 music from his album “Nachtgedanken“ was chosen as soundtrack for the short film “Husk“ by dance artist and choreographer Tori Lawrence.

Thomas has released numerous albums on Bandcamp and iTunes and other download and streaming portals.
