About

Timothy Tate (1989) is a composer and performer whose multifaceted output spans from music for soloists to large ensembles, experimental handbuilt/circuit bent electronics, often resulting in immersive live performances, and installation and site-specific work. His experimental output frequently makes use of modified obsolete recording technologies such as magnetic tape, shellac records and primitive sampling devices informed by his training as a classical composer. Timothy’s music has been performed and commissioned by leading ensembles in Australia and the UK. He frequently collaborates as composer & performer most recently working with Brisbane based poet Zenobia Frost to compose a live tape soundtrack to her poem Blueprint No. 4: Bramble Terrace. He holds a Master of Music in Composition with Distinction from the Royal Academy of Music, London and commences his PhD studies at Griffith University in April 2020, researching the reimagining of redundant technologies as a catalyst for new compositional techniques.
