Tim Wright is a musician, composer and video artist based in York. He is perhaps best known as a producer of
unusual electronic dance music released under his own name and the pseudonym Tube Jerk.
His music has been released by some of the key labels in the field including Tresor, Mute/Novamute, Sativae and GPR.
His recordings in the early 1990s as Germ for GPR are considered to have been pioneering in the then nascent IDM scene.
Innovative and uncompromising, surreal and often disorientating, Germ offered glimpses of possible musical futures which
have never been fully realised. Subsequent work retained something of the Germ signature sound, but was aimed squarely at
the adventurous dancefloor. Remix credits range from Scorn through Cristian Vogel to Laurent Garnier and Goldfrapp.
He has performed live extensively in Europe, in Japan, Australia and the US with notable dates including Sonar by Night
and Transmusicales in 2004. He was also a founder member of electro-voodoo-metal act Sand (Soul Jazz/Satellite Records)
Tim currently works as a sound engineer and composer with Japanese choreographer Saburo Teshigawara and Karas. His compositions for Teshigawara include the original music for Metamorphosis (2014), a commission for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, Sweden; Darkness is Hiding Black Horses (2013) for the Ballet de L'Opera de Paris, France; and comnpositions for installations at the Yokohama Triennale 2008, the Shanghai Zendai Museum of Modern Art and the Ikon Gallery in Birmingham.
In recent years Tim has in some respects returned to his experimental roots and has been exploring generative and algorithmic
approaches to audio visual composition, receiving a doctorate in electroacoustic composition from the University of York in 2014.
The Sick Rose, his album recorded with the Czech vocalist Monika Naceva was nominated for a Grammy as Best Electronic Album of 2010 in the Czech Republic, with two of the tracks making number 1 on the Czech Radio 1 top 40.
He is also working on an album for Viewer.
