Tommy Evans is a BASCA award winning composer, producer and sound artist whose work includes music for film, TV, dance, art exhibitions and theatre.
His work blends original compositions with heavily textured soundscapes that fall somewhere between the worlds of electronic and acoustic music. Tommy is increasingly interested in the crossover between music and sound and how these two worlds combine and interact.
Tommy is the Musical Director of the Outlook Orchestra, an orchestra who specialise in the orchestral recreation of electronic and bass music. The orchestra have collaborated previously with Mala, David Rodigan, Shy FX, Alala, Pharoahe Monch, Roots Manuva, D Double E, Adrian Sherwood, Mad Professor, Julian Marley, Freddie McGregor, Horace Andy, Dawn Penn and many more. The orchestra are based at The Royal Festival Hall at London’s Southbank Center.
As a composer Tommy has worked alongside many internationally renown artists, most recently writing and arranging the strings for Goldies album ‘The Journeyman’, and composing the music for ‘Reminiscence’, by Rambert Dance Company, choreographed by Dane Hurst.
Tommy has had his music synced to a number of adverts and TV programs with clients including Adidas, Audi, Ralph, Lauren, Anthropologie, Chevrolet and TVS. He has been commissioned to write music for festivals in Japan, Norway and the UK, and has had his music featured on BBC Radio 1, 1Xtra, Radio 2, Radio 3 and 6 Music.
Tommy is the Musical Director of Submotion Orchestra, who have released 5 studio albums and 3 EP’s with Exceptional Records, Ninja Tune and Counter Records.
His new project Equal Sky fuses electronica, soundscapes and found sound, and explores ways of finding beauty from the everyday sounds of Londons streets and people.
