The Media Centre [i]
10pm


Tom Betts is an artist, programmer, composer and performer living in Penistone, West Yorkshire. He is amongst the most prolific and versatile artists practising in the field of digital and interactive media. He specialises in generative programming techniques; his creative output includes interactive music games, computer game modifications, installations, software, live music performances, musical composition and his experimental pop band, Weevil.

Tom has performed at Ultrasound twice before; a Nullpointer set Pixelmap in 2002 and in 2003 Tom performed several pieces written on Nintendo Gameboy hardware. All the tracks were composed and performed using Nanoloop, a realtime synthesis sequencer for the Gameboy. As with the majority of Tom’s performances he performed with his collaborator Jonny Pilcher. In 2004 Ultrasound presented an installation of the generative net.radio station, rand()%, a collaboration between Tom Betts and Joe Gilmore. The installation was called rand()%lab – the online project re-presented in a gallery context – which used the laboratory as a metaphor for research and investigation into
random number generation and sound. Tom is currently part of a research group at The University of Huddersfield, where he also teaches on the BA [Hons] Computer Games Design and Virtual Reality and Animation courses.
