Tim Feeney
Improviser, composer, and performer Tim Feeney seeks to explore and examine the possibilities inherent in unstable sound and duration. Tim began working in this thread in 2002, within Boston’s community of improvisers interested in austere combinations of sounds and silences, and has since performed and recorded with musicians throughout the United States and abroad. He frequently collaborates with artists including the trio Meridian, with percussionists Sarah Hennies and Greg Stuart, pianist Annie Lewandowski, cellist and electronic musician Vic Rawlings, vocalist Ken Ueno, saxophonist Andrew Raffo Dewar, banjo and electronic musician Holland Hopson, trumpeter Nate Wooley, sound artists Jed Speare and Ernst Karel, saxophonist Jack Wright, and many others.

He has presented work at experimental spaces throughout the United States, such as the Red Room in Baltimore, Boston’s Institute of Contemporary Art, the Knitting Factory New York, and The Stone, as well as the Center for New Music and Audio Technology at UC-Berkeley, the Stanford Art Museum, Princeton University, and Dartmouth College. Within this community, he has recorded for the experimental Caduc, Accidie, Rhizome.s, Full Spectrum, Sedimental, homophoni, Audiobot, Soul on Rice, lildiscs, and Brassland/Talitres labels.

Every artist working in new mediums and breakthrough fields of sound does so through their own idiosyncratic series of approaches and self-patterned diagrams. While to the untrained ear or mind, some of these audio construction processes through found, made, and/or manipulated sound might appear similar amongst these artists and their peers, but no two creative methods are ever completely the same.

This logic can very well be applied to Magicicada, where home recordings from the boondocks of Georgia began a new phenomenon. Recordings from a 150 year old house's faulty wiring lead to further field experiments, and renegade distribution through stashing and stocking CDs, tapes, and thumb drives in public restrooms, record stores, the cars of strangers, randomly mailed parcels, and inviting unwitting participatants to contribute through answering machine messages. This was the background for Magicicada's 2005 release Everyone is Everyone. Flash ahead nearly a decade later and their upcoming album for Mission Trips International, Wrack with Ruin, introduces more manic rhythms with a spotlight on the MPC drum sampler.
