Dominik is happy to be an endorsee of:

North Italian born, Dominik Told lives and works in Meran (IT), Berlin, London and internationally. Playing the classical guitar from the age of 9 and the electric guitar from the age of 11, he started picking up the bass with 13. Having found his instrument, he moved to London to study at the University Of West London. Graduating from the Higher Diploma in Popular Music Performance he moved on to the Bmus(Honours) course which he graduated from with a first in 2013.

During his studies, Dominik got involved in several projects and found new interests in Music Technology and recording. He started working part time in several studios as a producer, recording- and mix-engineer for different bands and vocalists in in all kinds of genres.

With the foundation of his studies and the experience he gained by playing a vast amount of performances in all kinds of styles it was only natural to develop a hunger for composing. After living and working as a full time professional musician in the UK for 9 years he relocated to Berlin, Germany where he gained further experience in the film industry,

In 2019, Dominik moved back home to Meran, Italy and he is now thriving to be a full time professional composer for Film, TV and the gaming industry. He is still enjoying international touring and sharing the stage with all kinds of artists and theatre shows putting his skills as a bass player and musical director to work.

On top of all that he has a big passion for tour- and live-photography as well as filming and editing live performance videos of fellow artists and musicians.
