Timothy Arliss OBrien is an interdisciplinary artist in music composition, writing, and visual arts. His goal is to connect people to accessible new music that showcases virtuosic abilities without losing touch of authentic emotions. He has premiered music with The Astoria Music Festival, Cascadia Composers, Sound of Late’s 48 hour Composition Competition, and ENAensemble’s Serial Opera Project.
He also wants to produce writing that connects the reader to themselves in a way that promotes wonder and self realization. He has published several books of poetry (Dear God I’m a Faggot, Happy LGBTQ Wrath Month, They), several cartomancy decks for divination (The Gazing Ball Tarot, The Graffiti Oracle, and The Ink Sketch Lenormand), and has writing featured with Look Up Records (Seattle) and Deep Overstock: The Bookseller’s Journal.
He has also combined his passion for poetry with his love of publishing and curates the podcast The Poet Heroic, the upcoming literary journal Queer Revolt, and he also hosts the new music podcast Composers Breathing. He also showcases his psychedelic makeup skills as the phenomenal drag queen Tabitha Acidz and expanded his love for music by transforming into the up and coming soundcloud rapper Lil Fag Tears.
