Since I started releasing EPs and Albums, I've never had my solo work pressed to vinyl. The upfront costs (especially here in Australia) are quite high and unfortunately I just didn't have the funds to cover it all. After being shown Diggers Factory I thought it'd be a great opportunity to finally have some of my work pressed and hence here I am :)
This 2xLP features a selection of work across all different releases as well as those tracks that people have asked for on my Facebook page. As much as Id like to include everything, it will just blow out the costs and make the overall product a tad too expensive.
I hope this project gets up and everyone will be able to own a piece of my work on wax!
Tom Day is a solo producer residing in Melbourne, 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 Hans Zimmer, Thomas Newman, John Barry & John Williams, as well as early 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, and clients who have licensed his tracks include National Geographic, Volvo, New York Times, Holden and Momondo. Tom releases music independently and, in 2015, played several live shows in Melbourne, including Melbourne Music Week. 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.
