Thomas' changed his pseudonym from "Polyneon" to "MonoNeon" on October 26, 2011.
Dywane Thomas, Jr. (formerly known as Polyneon, now known as MonoNeon) was born on August 6, 1990 in Memphis, TN. Thomas began playing bass guitar at four years old, without any formal lessons. His musical background is influenced by blues, southern soul, and funk. Thomas is known for being a bassist, but he is also an experimental composer. His experimental music is based on noise, microtonality, randomness, and the idea of various art forms (Dadaism, Surrealism, conceptual art, and etc). When listening to Thomas' experimental works, there is always a childlike presence in his music. As a bassist, Thomas has performed with David Fiuczynski, George Duke, Kirk Whalum, Jack Dejohnette, Chris Coleman, Kevin Davidson and The Voices, Ne-Yo ("Libra Scale" album), Forest Won with Georgia Anne Muldrow, South Soul, The Bar-Kays, Ghost Town Blues Band, Gusto, and etc.
Thomas' Dadaistic work includes, "The Readymade Bass". This idea was obviously inspired by Marcel Duchamp's readymade art. The characteristics of "The Readymade Bass" is the ordinary sock covering the headstock, the name "Polyneon" taped onto the body, and other mundane items placed on the guitar.
