Timothy Cooper is a composer and performer of electroacoustic music. My compositions reflect a love of performance born from my studies as a euphonium player and from playing with my parents radio set. This performance is reflected in the kinds of sounds I seek out and in the way that I use them both instrumentally and in the electroacoustic studio.
