Timothy Pledger (aka: UNCLE.E ) is a Melbourne based composer, musician and film artist. Tim composes acoustic, electric, electronic and orchestral works using a diverse range of forms and materials from highly minimalistic and personal to expressive and extreme emotional structures. Timothy is deeply involved in the tonal and emotional aspects of rhythmic harmony as they move against each other in blocks and waves of sound.
Tim's musical, filmic and written works are concerned with the landscape of the culture and politics of the environment they are created within, and are therefore personal indictments or appraisals of certain aspects of society.
Tim's longest running ensemble, "bohjass", has been critically acclaimed both in Australia and abroad and many of Australia's great improvisors have played at some stage in this ensemble.
