Season 2 Episode 2 of Art Breaker
Lloyd Richards bring this interview and audio doco about artist Tom Day to Art Breaker.
Tom Day is a solo artist residing in Main Ridge, Australia and has been creating ambient and electronic music since 2005. Characterised as “effortless and raw”, Tom’s tracks couple elegant beats and piano melodies to an array of personally-collected field recordings, his style alternating between promising swells and restful plateaus.
Having grown up on a farm on the Mornington Peninsula, Tom is strongly influenced by the ocean beaches and natural openness of his hometown. Other influences include cinematic scores by Alan Silvestri, Jóhann Jóhannsson, Thomas Newman, John Barry & John Williams, as well as pioneering electronic artists such as Moby, Daft Punk, Brian Eno and The Chemical Brothers.
The music of Tom Day has been used in independent film and documentaries from around the world, with clients including National Geographic, Volvo, New York Times, Momondo, Holden, Juice Media, GetUp and Tourism Victoria. Having worked on an array of joint projects with other musicians and visual artists, Tom is deeply drawn to the synthesis of sound and image.
