Tom grew up in Reading and played violin from an early age and his love of, and involvement in music has endured. Throughout a career as senior chef - working for Michel Roux and throughout Europe, he maintained his music by playing and recording, whilst building up a home studio. Tom furthered his professional music career by completing the ACM BA music production degree, gaining a high-pass 2(i). Tom cites Bjork and Orbital as his seminal inspiration, when going on to become a DJ, moving onto elements of afrobeat and funk. Tom is keen synth and sampler player using Reason 2 initially, then Logic Pro to create his sound. At the ACM Tom discovered a passion for recording and mixing bands and solo performances specialising in Acoustics and Creative Audio Technology. He recorded the ACM Electron Choir in surround sound on location at Watts Gallery, Surrey. NeverEverMedia echoes G.F. and Mary Watts vision of, ‘Art for all’. At the ACM Tom was also Course Representative and helped to encourage the ACM into providing a better service for students, as well as Workshop Developer and founder-member of Synthjam with Bob Earland of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop Band. Close to Tom’s heart is the plight of European refugees.
