Biography

One of the finest instrumental/ambient records I have heard recently. Keep up the good work!

Tim Gerwing creates mystical ambience in the fourth world; electronic bytes and down-tempo beats fuse with ethereal world fusion in a contemplative elegance. This is Tim Gerwing.

Tim Gerwing was born in Canada, but spent his early childhood in Germany. Traditional music lessons began (on the glockenspiel!) at age 4, with a move to classical piano one year later. Piano studies continued throughout his teen years. However, the confines of the classical world pushed him to experiment with jazz, electronic, new age, progressive rock/pop, and Middle and Far Eastern musics. The purchase of his first synthesizer and electric guitar in the late 80's were turning points and very much shaped what was to become his sound.

In 2002, Gerwing released his first album, "Being to Being". The album received international radio airplay in Canada, Japan, Holland, Australia, Poland, Russia, and the USA. Music from Being to Being was recently featured on the Genie Award winning "Suzuki Speaks".

Gerwing's 2nd major release, "The Butterfly Effect", is now available and receiving critical acclaim in Canada, Europe, Siberia, and Asia.

Tim performs on keyboards, guitars, electronics, and Middle Eastern percussion both solo and with world musicians including Boris Sichon, Tarun (Beats Without Borders), and Serwan Yamolky in Vancouver, Canada. He has been a guest musician with artists on the Canadian Copperspine Records label, and is co-founder of the 30 Days project.
