Drums by Magic & Drum Moves (1976-8) Tom Recchion

Tom Recchion has been a sound and visual artist/composer/art director & graphic designer in 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 genres exciting developments of the last quarter century: record manipulation, live tape loops, free improvisation, found and invented instruments, installation, and more.
