Tim Daemen (*1975) is a Belgian musician. At young age he was fascinated by percussion and brass instruments. The trombone was chosen and he joined the local wind orchestra. After having done other work activities, he went to study jazz trombone at Maastricht Conservatory (NL), MusikHochschule Cologne (DE) and did his Masters at Antwerp Conservatory.
His work as freelance musician consists of playing in small and big jazz formations/ensembles, Latin and world music formations and theater productions in Belgium, the Netherlands, Luxemburg and Germany.
In March 2017 he presented his first album as a frontman with his band Dada Bölüm called “Pre sentiment”. The repertoire consists of jazz and world music orientated compositions of his own feather. The band is active in Belgium and the Netherlands.
Having a deep fascination for performance art artist Regina Jose Galindo (Guatemala), Tim made a solo performance using video and loops that was played at Jazz in’t MAS in Antwerp. This indicates a new direction of interdisciplinary forms of creation.
He is teaching Trombone, improvisation and is a (jazz)band coach at Kumulus Music Academy Maastricht, Music Academy of Hasselt (B), and recently started as aspiring teacher at Hogeschool Zuyd, Conservatory of Maastricht.
