Tom Recchion United States
Tom Recchion has been a artist/composer/art director in Southern California since the 1970’s. He is the co-creator of the legendary Los Angeles Free Music Society (LAFMS). At the time he discarded object making (though he employs it now) and concentrated on the ephemeral nature of sound. His early practice in low-tech sonic exploration presaged many of the genre's exciting developments of the last quarter-century: record manipulation, live tape loops, free improvisation, found and invented instruments, installation, and more.
