Count Baldor is the current pseudonym of Tom Parker, a British music producer and composer. Rather than seeing hyperpop as a defining sound, Parker sees it as a continuation of the likes of Shitmat, Ebola and the rest of the Wrong Music team, among others. Sometimes he works from scratch and just creates until he has something he likes. When he draws inspiration, he draws inspiration from sources such as British garage, jazz, TV show themes, early lyre music, dubstep, psych trance, techno, IDM, etc. He shared: “I like to choose different things and just watch , what works. together in a fun way.”
When creating music and sounds, Parker enjoys playing with different musical tropes and reinventing or repurposing things. He thinks others will find fun ways to incorporate a less serious production and songwriting approach when working with his Splice package.
