Bio: Tim Gerwing is a Canadian musician and producer. Growing up in Germany and
Canada, traditional music lessons began early on piano and percussion. His
musical studies continued in Canada 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
shaped what was to become his signature sound.
HisHis newest album is "Masked and Dreaming" (see the website at
www.lascaux21.com/maskedanddreaming). A marked departure from previous
explorations, this album features more "songs", but continues the tradition of
thickly woven auditory landscapes of ambient, rock, and electronic musics.
"Chikatetsu","Chikatetsu", 2009/2010, (see the website at www.lascaux21.com/chikatetsu), was
an acclaimed album of eclectic and rich tapestry of electronic soundscapes based
loosely on Gerwing’s experiences of living in Japan and reflections on modern life.
Chikatetsu was accompanied by "Stations [PLUS]", a companion album featuring
B-sides from the Chikatetsu sessions. A tour of Japan in support of “Chikatetsu”
was undertaken in Autumn 2010.
