Works for several instrumentations, ranging from solo and chamber music to orchestral and electronic music. Author of a guitar method and pieces for music lessons. Lutenist (solo and continuo) and guitarist. Member of several ensembles.

To meet the requirements of contemporary music, Thomas Bocklenberg performs a playing technique which differs aesthetically from historical techniques. This is basis for compositional ideas and performances of his own works and arrangements. As guitarist, lutenist and arranger, he is member of several ensembles and participated in studio and film productions.
