Tom Lyons is an experimental composer living and working between the Gold Coast, Australia and Madarao, Japan. His interest has always been in improvisation, and how different emotions and ideas can be instinctively expressed when composing spontaneously, especially in response to another stimulus.
Tom's compositional intention is to capture the rawness of unrefined feelings that naturally flow through improvised music and enhance this quality through experimenting with novel instrumentation and extended piano techniques. Tom has created a diverse range of solo and collaborative sound scores for short films and live performances over the past eight years. He has been collaborating with visual/performance artist Lowana Davies for over two years, showing their work at The Walls Art Space, The WhiteBox Gallery and Festival 2018.
