TIMOTHY ARLISS O'BRIEN
I started life in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma as a composer. My early years comprised of composing for the Piano, Organ, and brass instruments; with which I was being classically trained. Having started university with thirteen years of composition experience and lessons I was unchallenged and bored, I gave up and pursued a degree in counseling and writing. Now that I am in the Pacific Northwest, music, visual art and writing have a much broader scope for me. I have published a novel in verse, and a collection of poetry.
Goals: Connecting people to accessible new music that showcases virtuosic abilities without losing touch of realistic emotions and virtue. Produce writing that connects the reader to themselves in a way that promotes growth. Create visual art demanding of the senses that thrusts people into a new world and a new perspective.
Currently working on: Composing a ballet, Self-Publishing a Piano anthology, and Recording an Electronic music album.
As a bohemian artist of all mediums I love collaboration and conversation with other creatives! Enjoy my creations!

Oregon Connection: Moving to the Pacific Northwest in 2011 was a monumental choice for me to provide myself with a place accessible to the arts and culture that would harbor such talent. Since then I have been a member of Cascadia Composers, and worked with several musicians in the area.
