Drawing influence from music ranging from György Ligeti to the pygmies of Central Africa, the work of film directors Andrei Tarkovsky and Jean-Luc Godard and the creations of pioneering chefs Ferran Adrià and Heston Blumenthal, Tom's warm sound and all-encompassing approach are becoming increasingly well known across Europe and beyond. Recent recordings include Julia Hülsmann Quartet (ECM, 2013), Eric Schaefer's 'Who's Afraid of Richard W.' (ACT, 2013), Miles Perkin Quartet (2012), H3B Songs No Songs (Abalone, 2012) and Postcards from Pushkin with Richard Fairhurst (Babel, 2011). As a composer, Tom has been awarded commissions from the BBC/RPS for both the City of London Festival (Postcards from Pushkin with Richard Fairhurst), and the BBC Proms (And Distant Shore, with Richard Fairhurst and ace classical trumpeter Giuliano Sommerhalder). The Geneva Downtown Orchestra also commissioned a suite of music for 9-piece ensemble with Arthurs.Høiby.Ritchie at it's centre, and A.H.R have also performed a suite by Tom with the Elysian and Gerdur Gunnarsdottir String Quartets. 2010 saw the commission of Fire Paintings (for Yves Klein), which was premiered by the BBC Concert Orchestra with Tom and drummer Stuart Ritchie as soloists, and 2011 saw a further BBC commission for the Elias Quartet plus Swiss drummer Samuel Rohrer. Bands range from the duo with Richard Fairhurst and trio Arthurs-Høiby-Ritchie to sideman work with H3B (Denis Badault, Sébastien Boisseau, Régis Huby), Miles Perkin Quartet (Benoît Delbecq, Miles Perkin, Thom Gossage), Julia Hülsmann Quartet (Marc Muellbauer, Heinrich Köbberling), as well as in quartet with Julie Sassoon, Lothar Ohlmeier and Samuel Rohrer. Much of Tom's improvised experimental output is available through the Not Applicable Label, whether with the trio GLUE (Miles Perkin, Yorgos Dimitriadis), working with interactive computer software (Long Division, Ollie Bown), or in duo with electrician Simon Vincent.
