Tim Kaiser: Duluth, Minnesota’s raison d’être for musical exploration and all-around tinkering with instruments, Tim Kaiser commands his creations with simple sweeps of his hands, willing sounds into existence. He has scored films, been featured on PBS as well as in magazines, and has toured extensively. How he gets by airport security with his devices is anyone’s guess, but his hand-built instruments are as alluring as the sounds they make. Kaiser has been a founding contributor and champion ofthe Weirdo Industrial Complexfor more than 30 years.
“Tim Kaiser’s gonkulations and acousto-electric contraptions almost defy description. If I hadn’t seen it for myself, I would not have believed that he creates these sonic atmospheres without keyboard synthesizers or midi!” –Art Tape
