Tom Williams


Tom Williams is a composer working in electroacoustic music and instrumental composition.

Over the last twenty years he has developed a large body of composition for both acoustic (vocal / instrumental / orchestral) and electroacoustic media (acousmatic / video / installation). When composing he enjoys the exploration of new sounds, new material; exploring and exploiting the tension between the visceral resonance and the compositional imperative.

He is Principal Lecturer in Music Composition and Course Director for the BA music programmes and he is leader of the experimental music research group INTIME, at Coventry University.

360 film collaboration

360 film collaboration with Sarah Jones. The Town that Blew Away.
This immersive experiential film transports you to Glenrio, Texas. It straddles the border between Texas and New Mexico. Once a monument along Route 66, it now remains home to only derelict buildings and tumble weeds. The film serves as a reminder of what happens when life moves too fast and things get left behind.
