On the 10th of December we celebrate the launch of NAIAD.'s first V.A album, NAI010: 'An exploration of the juxtopositions and harmonies of the organic and inorganic expressed through minimalist electronic sound.'
Joining us for an evening of textured ambient, deep and experimental electronica in a gallery setting in the heart of Brighton-

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.
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.
A veteran in the underground scene, by 2008 he had earned multiple residencies across Athens where in 2011 under the name Giles Leon he was a joint organiser of the Single Vision warehouse parties but it would be back in the UK among the contrasting industrial cityscapes and spacious subtlety of nature where the N38 project would inevitably be inspired.
In 2016 after a stint as the in-house sound engineer for Stage 3 at Hackney Empire he made the transition from the capital, soon gaining a residency with Wobbly Records and becoming a regular on the Brighton scene.
He continues to push forward with his unique flavour of organic techno- studying, reflecting and staying active with numerous projects including his recent EP “Jeita” and his first works on vinyl.
Music Genres: Dub, Electronic, Experimental, Minimal Techno, Techno
