Tomos is a Welsh producer and multi-instrumentalist. He has released the debut EP called Count The Seconds, a rich and eclectic blend of summery electronics and ambient textures. It is out via Mellia. He explains: “I was once told about the concept of going on sound walks – staying silent for a set amount of time whilst walking and listening carefully to the relationship between the sounds in your environment. Ever since then I’ve often found myself wandering around Peckham or resting in rural Wales with earphones in without any music intently listening to everything else, making ambient recordings and scribbling down thoughts. The songs from the EP aren’t based on any particular moment, but more about capturing a series of calming memories and sounds.”

Producing music is often quite a meditative thing for me – the process of focussing so intently for so long on something that loops around for hours on end leads to a losing of a sense of time. During this time I don’t think about my life or anything connected to it, solely the relationship between the sounds that I’m slotting together; so writing about intent listening and meditation felt quite natural despite not meditating as a practice.”
