Tom Fox (aka Vulpestruments)

Experimental instrument maker & musician

Back in 2009 Tom started getting ideas for instruments, but he didn’t want to buy materials for his ideas. If his ideas didn’t work it would have been a waste of money and a waste of materials. So, he started looking around at the materials he had to hand to see what could be made from them.

It wasn’t long before he realised that by limiting himself to just recycled and reclaimed materials, it was forcing him to be more creative with the instruments he was building.

Since then Tom has been taking commissions from people for instruments, has run workshops and talks on how to build DIY instruments and has performed solo and collaborative performances using his more experimental instruments.

Tom has performed or talked at The Tate Modern, The Royal College of Music, The Royal College of Art, Music Tech Fest Central (Slovenia), Music Tech Fest Berlin, Music Hack Space, London Hackspace, Childwickbury Arts Faire, The Great Home Hack, London Mini Maker Faire and London Arduino Day. I was also Artist in Residence for Machinesroom.
