Tom Richards is an artist, musician, DJ, researcher and instrument designer working in London UK. He has walked the line between sonic art, sculpture and music since graduating with an MA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art in 2004. Richards has built his own idiosyncratic modular electronic music system, with which he creates slowly evolving and heavily textured polyrhythmic improvisations. His individual approach and reductive palette lead to a taut, rhythmically focused sonic experience. He has performed and exhibited widely in the UK, as well as internationally in the US, Germany, Peru, Japan and Sweden.
Selected works and live performances have taken place at Tate Britain, The Queen Elizabeth Hall, The Science Museum, Spike Island, Cafe Oto, MK Gallery, Bold Tendencies, and Camden Arts Centre.
Tom features on Nonclassical's new EP Outside the Lines.
