Tom Richards is an artist, musician, sound designer, and instrument maker, working in London UK. He has been working between sonic art, sculpture, film and music since graduating with an MA in Fine Art from Chelsea College of Art in 2004. He has performed and exhibited widely in the UK, as well as internationally in the US, Brazil, Germany, Peru, Singapore, Hungary, Japan and Sweden.

Selected works and live performances have taken place at Tate Britain, Fabric, Barbican, The Queen Elizabeth Hall, The Science Museum, Spike Island, Cafe Oto, MK Gallery, Focal Point, and Camden Arts Centre.

In 2018 he completed his PhD (Goldsmiths/Science Museum) on the work of Daphne Oram: electronic music pioneer, and founder of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. This research included the construction of Oram’s unrealised Mini Oramics synthesizer design (Circa 1975), a project that has since gained worldwide attention.

He is represented by Nonclassical.
