Loop 2.4.3 artistic director Thomas Kozumplik is involved with a wide range of music as creator, producer, collaborator, and freelancer. He co-founded the art/improv group Clogs, artist-owned record label Music Starts From Silence, and was a member of the Yale Percussion Group (dir. Robert van Sice), the Robert Hohner Percussion Ensemble (classical, jazz, and world music), the Ron Parmentier Trio (modern and free jazz), and Uncle Jimmy's Dirty Basement (theatrical/multi-media rock and roll). His performances have been called "dazzling throughout" (Mojo, UK), "sublime" (Pitchfork, USA), "smart and engaging" (New York Times, USA), and "the hit for me" (composer Terry Riley via the New York Times). Gramophone (UK) called Loop 2.4.3's American Dreamland “an astonishing variety of brand-new yet iconic sounds that create a riveting aura” and praised its “artistic punch.”


In addition to his main projects, Thomas is active as a studio musician and live performer in NYC, featured on film and video-game soundtracks, and at venues from Carnegie Hall to ShapeShifter Lab. Collaborators have included Reneé Baker, Jonathan Haas, Elliott Levin, Dafnis Prieto, Yuhan Su, The National, Sufjan Stevens, My Brightest Diamond, and The Books. He has been featured on over 20 internationally released albums, in a variety of genres, on the Albany, Asthmatic Kitty, Beggars Banquet, Brassland, Digital Music Products (DMP), and Music Starts From Silence record labels.

Based in Brooklyn, NY, Thomas has toured throughout North America, Europe, Scandinavia, South Korea, and Australia, and has performed for radio, film, theater, and television, including features on the Learning Channel, NPR, and France Inter Radio. He has given concerts, clinics, and held residencies at such institutions as Cornell University, Ithaca College, CalArts, UC Berkeley, Alma College, Michigan State University, and others. Thomas has been featured as a soloist and collaborator at the London Jazz Festival, Sydney Festival, Adelaide Festival, the Barbican (UK), Brighton Dome (UK), Bang on a Can Marathon, Ecstatic Music Festival (NYC), Big Ears Music Festival 
(Knoxville), the Andy Warhol Museum (Pittsburgh), World Cafe Live (Philadelphia), and many more.
