Event description

Description

These meetups focus on hardware and DIY electronics for musical applications. They are informal and loosely structured, and we encourage those with ongoing projects or a backlog of devices to build to come down and work on them, as well as those with little to no experience to come down to learn and get involved. This is a space to meet like minded people working on diverse electronics projects. We’ve invited Tom Richards to host these meetups and provide technical support and advice.

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. 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.

He has recently submitted his PhD (Goldsmiths/Science Museum) on the work of Daphne Oram: electronic music pioneer, and founder member of the BBC Radiophonic Workshop. This research included the re-design and construction of Oram’s Mini Oramics synthesizer, a project that has since gained worldwide attention.

The meetup is organised by Music Hackspace.

Drinks will be available from the bar next to the entrance to the New Wing of Somerset House.

The venue is located on the ground floor of Somerset House and is fully wheelchair accessible with an accessible toilet. If you have any other access requirements, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate them.
