Tim Story

Tim Story Tim Story, hailed as "a true artist in the electronic medium" (Victory Review, USA) and "a master of electronic chamber music" (CD Review, USA) has received worldwide acclaim for his haunting compositions which blend acoustic orchestral instruments, spiky electronica, and a pioneering sense of sound design.

Tim's intensely personal style as a composer, synthesist and pianist evolved from years of experimentation in his home studio, and a love of composition. Along with his self-taught, idiosyncratic approach to the piano, Story saw the great potential of the new breed of electronic music instruments that were appearing in the early 70's. This affinity for synthesizers, as well as electric guitars, tape loops and kitchen utensils, is evident in his early recordings. The careful juxtaposition of acoustic instruments with electronic textures, and an inventive approach to composition are common threads running through most of Story's work.

Tim Story's work has garnered an international reputation for its haunting elegance and meticulous compositional detail. When writing and recording, he often spends months carefully working and refining the shape of each composition until he achieves the desired emotional and intellectual effect. His seemingly effortless pieces distill harmonic and melodic ideas that are often quite complex.
