Tyler G. Wood

Tyler G. Wood

Tyler Wood was born and raised in the northeast corner of the U.S. Although Presque Isle, Maine is known more for potatoes and skidoos, he had a rich musical upbringing. His first instruments were piano, trumpet, and cardboard-box drums.
When Tyler went to college, his plan to study astrophysics was eclipsed by the purchase of a real drum set and a new-found love for hip hop and recording. The campus had a dingy basement studio, where he encountered his first multitrack tape machine and sampler. He began playing, recording, and mixing music of all kinds. Tyler progressed into more experimental music through an electro-acoustic composition class, where he spent countless hours composing on the studio’s massive Serge Modular synthesizer. But New York beckoned…
After arriving in Brooklyn in 2006, Tyler began to tour internationally and record with acts such as Luke Temple, Glass Ghost, Joan As Police Woman, and most recently Elvis Perkins.
Meanwhile, Tyler reconnected with his old acquaintance Therese Workman to form the group Oh My Goodness. They’ve since released two E.P.’s of original music that has been described as “Worry-Core” and “Cross-Eyed Soul”.
Tyler also has been traveling the world as Audio Director and engineer with the non-profit group Remix <–> Culture, recording remote video shoots of underrepresented folkloric music from Morocco to Brazil.
Tyler currently resides in the Hudson Valley of New York, and performs locally as well as internationally. The submitted composition was premiered at Basilica Hudson’s “24-Hour Drone” in 2016.
