The Tim Prebble Trilogy

A friend went & visited the NZ Music History exhibition VOLUME at Auckland Museum yesterday and sent me the following photo, of a card attached to an exhibit of some microphones..


I think their researchers may have got me confused with the intended Tim Prebble, who also lives in Wellington. As you will likely know, I am the {older) film sound designer & composer, field recordist, photographer & modular synth noodler…. and all the info on that card (other than the last line) refers to me, rather than the intended Tim Prebble..

The younger Tim Prebble, is a brother of excellent music engineer & producer Lee Prebble, owner of The Surgery Studio. That Tim is also a bass player, and his work is focused on electronics – I met him many years ago when my Sequential Ciruits Six Trak Synth died, and someone reccomended him to me. Since then he has repaired dozens of bits of equipment for me… Also interesting, he has a company called Dogmatek and has released his first guitar pedal, the Arctic Wolf

There is also another Tim Prebble living in New Zealand – in Christchurch. He owns Texture Plants and has also been very involved in the development of the $20 million mountain bike park in the port hills!


Only very occasionally

UPDATE: there is a fourth Tim Prebble in New Zealand!
Apparently he just graduated in camera department from South Seas Film School

I am mostly writing to explain this so that next time someone does get us confused, they can hopefully find this!
