Tim Bausch is currently working towards completion of his second graduate degree in music composition in addition to his already completed percussion performance degree. He recently joined the music theory faculty as an adjunct professor of music theory at SUNY Fredonia. As a composer, Tim has earned several awards including the Donald Bohlen Scholarship Award, Poummit Concert Master Award, and the Ethos Laureate Prize in Composition. Tim is a member of ASCAP and runs the publishing company, Harmonic Innovation.

As a scholar, Tim's focus is in sound as a whole as well as its individual parts. This obsession with sound inspires an interest in professional quality sound recording and audio engineering.  In addition to capturing sound, he utilizes programs such as PureData and OpenMusic to create specific sounds through the use of algorithms and additive synthesis.  Tim strives to combine this knowledge for sound into his compositional and theoretical language through acoustic and electronic mediums.
