A Day in the Life: Timo Andres
Friday, October 14, 2016
How do artists refresh their creative lives? Every week, one of our favorite artists will take over our Instagram to reveal his or her favorite forms of down-time. On Monday, Q2 Music compiles the takeover into a web feature. Follow the live takeovers on our Instagram account and catch the write-up from the latest feature below.
Timo Andres is a Brooklyn-based composer and one-sixth of the composers' collective Sleeping Giant. He has toured with Gabriel Kahane, Philip Glass, and was a finalist for the 2016 Pulitzer Prize. In between debating the merits of Against Me! vs Dyke Drama and checking the election polls, Timo makes sure to color coordinate with his food.
