Timothy Hill


Timothy Hill
weaves a natural purity of voice with threads of otherworldly abstract sound. Having performed with such diverse artists as Pete Seeger, Jeff Buckley and Bill Frisell, it is no wonder that Hill’s musical explorations span the genres of folk, jazz, world music, contemporary classical and improvisation. As a member of David Hykes’s Harmonic Choir, he is a pioneer in the art of harmonic singing, prompting The New York Times critic Robert Palmer to praise Hill as “a virtuoso of the Tibetan chanting technique.”
He contributed to the newly released spoken word with music collection Pete Seeger: The Storm King, and appears on recordings by Katell Keineg, Giora Feidman, Robert Een, and he has participated in premiere performances under the direction of composers John Cage, Joe Maneri, Butch Morris and Carter Burwell. Hill’s wish to deepen his understanding of music brought him to the study of Indian classical music with Sheila Dhar and Pandit Vijay Kichlu, and music in the teaching of Gurdjieff with John Pentland and others. Hill’s work is deeply influenced by a unique musical friendship with pianist Keith Jarrett.
