Tim exhibited musical aspirations at the tender age of 3, singing self-penned songs into a portable cassette recorder. Through the Seventies & early Eighties, he underwent formal piano training and wrote songs for a handful of short lived pop/electro bands.
The late Eighties saw his career really gain pace, penning memorable and often award winning compositions for over 50 computer and videogames beginning with freelance work on Commodore Amiga titles. He then went onto work full time at Psygnosis Ltd. (Now SCEE) on projects such as Lemmings, Wipeout, Wipeout 2097 and Colony Wars.
Leaving Psygnosis in ’95, he helped form Jester Interactive Ltd with the intention of bringing music creation and mixing to the masses on Sony’s original PlayStation console. Highly innovative and easy to use, the simply-titled Music received many awards and accolades, and spawned five more incarnations before Wright finally departed in search of pastures new.
In 2003, he formed his own multimedia company called Tantrumedia Ltd, an outlet for all his creative aspirations, web space provision, website creation, software production, design & print and, of course, music. Indeed, Tim's enduring love of song writing lead him to set up a website to host much of his musical output under the name CoLD SToRAGE.
2005 was a busy year... As well as releasing his long awaited CoLD SToRAGE double album, Tim developed a brand new version of the Dance & HipHop eJay music software for Empire Interactive, and made a welcome return to Wipeout, this time for the Sony PSP with Wipeout Pure.
2006: Tim is writing a new album, working on another product for eJay and is now putting pen to paper and writing a novel(!)
2007: This year is proving to be an "eJay explosion!" with a revamp for the product range and VMS and R&B launched.
2008: Finally the album "Android Child" is launched in March, followed a few months later by the eagerly anticipated "CoLD SToRAGE HD" - an unofficial 6 track album for the game "Wipeout HD".
2009: A new album is released to rave review "Project Moonbounce 2009" and music tracks are being penned for the Sony PS3/PSP game "Gravity Crash".
NEW RELEASE: "Project Moonbounce 2009"
Tim Wright aka. CoLD SToRAGE, a well known and award winning computer game musician, whose music has graced many games over the past 20 years, including Shadow of the Beast, Lemmings, Wipeout and the forthcoming Gravity Crash has reached into Outer Space for his latest album.
Entitled "Project Moonbounce 2009", Wright has used large radio dishes in the UK and Norway to bounce sounds off the moon and incorporate them into musical compositions.
Available from his website coldstorage.org.uk, Wright says, "...it was a mad idea, and to the best of our knowledge an actual first! We released the album on the 40th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moonlandings too." Fans agree it was a fitting tribute, and are already hailing it as possibly his finest work to date.
