sir o sir is the (latest) alias of composer and sound artist Timothy Isherwood (CA/UK). An academically trained pipe-organist and pianist, Isherwood uses diverse sources, like resonators, experimental microphones, spatialized sound and synthesizers to navigate soundscapes at once summoned and subjective. Past performances include work with The National Arts Centre of Canada, Institut-Française, the Banff Centre for the Arts, and Dock11&Eden. Timothy co-founded and curates the A/V series Famous Grapes Sessions usually at ACUD Macht Neu in Berlin, and is an editor for the experimental art and music publication, 20 Seconds Magazine.
