Timothy Cooper

ARTFORMS: Composition , Music




Originally from Darlington, Timothy moved to Scotland in 2006 to complete his undergraduate music studies in Euphonium performance. He continues his studies in music and composition at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland working towards a postgraduate master of composition degree.

His first year was successful in that his work was performed both in Australia and in the UK. Timothy’s particular passion is to work across art forms and he has completed the sound design for Joshua Armstrong’s The Sounding, for the National Youth Theatre’s workshop production Razia Sultan and for a short film by the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland students working in film and TV. He has also been selected by the Conservatoire to compose a piece for a group at the Paris Conservatoire. The piece will be performed in both Paris and Stuttgart.

Timothy is admired by performers and mentors for his combination of great talent and energy in making things happen. He co-founded the successful group edit point which is making great headway in Scotland and further afield.
