Tim Koh

Tim Koh is an American multi-instrumentalist, composer and visual artist, most notably known as a long-time member of the band Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti. His unique bass playing and musicianship has been recognised by many as being an influence. Born and raised in Los Angeles, his early years as a teen were rooted in punk and noise music. Koh’s penchant for underground culture, disillusioned with mainstream music and art eventually led him to study at the California Institute of the Arts, in hopes to escape the banal, normative life he thought was destined for him. After CalArts, Koh fell into the music world and for almost two decades, he has performed and collaborated with many different types of artists and musicians such as Sky Ferreira, Gang Gang Dance, Connan Mockasin, White Magic, Cass McCombs, Chris Cohen, Animal Collective, R. Stevie Moore, Prince Rama, Eddie Ruscha V, Hieroglyphic Being, Kirin J Callinan, DJ Harvey, No Age, Damo Suzuki of Can… the list goes on.

Tim Koh receives a grant of 4,500 euros in 2023.
