"Due to the pandemic and not being able to tour, I started to teach myself about modular synthesis and generative art to develop systems for creating music with visual art. This new practice spawned my "System Works" series of EPs which I'm currently self-releasing. It was a way to publish experimental work as I developed my creative and playing skills with my modular system"
Last summer Tom co-wrote the score with BC Smith for an action thriller titled "Stowaway" starring Ruby Rose which premiered on AMC+. Listen here.
