Within this community he has recorded for the experimental Marginal Frequency, Weighter, Caduc, Accidie, Full Spectrum, Sedimental, Cantaloupe, and Brassland/Talitres labels. He recently performed in quartet and large ensembles with composer and saxophonist Anthony Braxton, including a performance at the 2016 Big Ears Festival, acclaimed by the Guardian and the New York Times.

As an interpreter of contemporary compositions, Tim has performed at venues such as the Brooklyn Academy of Music, Zankel Hall, the American Academy in Rome, and the Norfolk Chamber Music Festival. He was a founding member of the quartet So Percussion, a member of Boston’s Callithumpian Consort, and performed with Rinde Eckert in his Pulitzer-nominated Orpheus X, directed by Robert Woodruff and staged at the American Repertory Theater, the off-Broadway Duke Theatre on 42nd Street, and the 2008 Hong Kong International Festival.

Tim also builds sound installations, concerned primarily with the acoustic properties and geographies of neglected or nontraditional spaces. His recent work has been presented by festivals at locations including Silo City, the abandoned grain silo complex along the river in Buffalo, New York, Boston’s Metropolitan Waterworks Museum, the preserved steam pumping station that processed the city’s drinking water, and the Bernheim Research Forest, outside Louisville, Kentucky, as well as by more formal events at the Contemporary Art Center New Orleans and the University of Richmond.
