Tim Wright has been operating at the fringes of the electronic music scene since the early 90s. Narrowly avoiding a relationship with Warp Records by missing the train to Sheffield in 1992, he signed a multi-album contract with the disaster prone General Production Recordings as GERM in 1993. A flurry of critically acclaimed releases ensued before GPR collapsed and Tim’s career was halted while he struggled to wriggle free. Deep bass driven anarcho-house techno project Tube Jerk was to rise from the ashes of GERM. Albums for PIAS and Edinburgh’s Sativae Recordings ensued and as Tube Jerk, Tim performed live at clubs and festivals all over the world, but mainly in Germany. A remix of Cristian Vogel’s Whipaspank brought him to the attention of Mute Records who subsequently released his first material under his own name.
He is currently writing film music for cult Russian horror director Andrey Iskanov and works as a composer with celebrated Japanese choreographer Saburo Teshigawara with major pieces recently performed by the Ballet de L’Opera de Paris and Gothenburg Opera Dance company.
