About Concert Timbre: 

Concrete Timbre artists began working together in 1999 as a studio performance collective to create and record soundscapes, sound installations,  theatrical sound designs, and to produce theatrical performances that feature music and sound.

By 2005 we formalized into a composer driven collective to create opportunities and produce multidisciplinary compositions featuring live music, text, projections, movement, and art.
