Tom Richards

Tom Richards is an artist, musician, DJ, researcher and instrument designer walking the line between sonic art, sculpture and music. For his PhD at Goldsmiths, Richards researched the work of Daphne Oram, culminating in a functional build of Mini Oramics, which the British electronic music pioneer conceptualised over 40 years ago but never realised during her lifetime: a machine that can translate drawings into sound and compositions. Richards' own output often features textured, evolving, polyrhythmic improvisations. He has performed and shown works throughout the UK – including CTM, Tate Britain and the Queen Elizabeth Hall – in the USA, Germany, Peru, Japan, and Sweden.
