Tim Mungenast Avant-garde Musician. Improviser. Rocker.

I’m Tim Mungenast, a surrealist guitar shaman with an almost messianic sense of purpose. My current musical adventures include collaborations with Eric Dahlman, Astro Al, Ken Lovelett, Pete Levin, and Gus Mancini.

My psych/improv band Timworld (formerly Tim Mungenast and His Preexisting Conditions, and before that Tim Mungenast and the Righteous Compression) lasted from 1992 to 2014 and may start up again someday. Today I use the word TimWorld as shorthand for all my musical projects.

My Goals

As a band, and especially in our glory days as a power trio (2002 to 2014), we performed mystic transport by gliding between our psych originals to "automatic real-time composition" to some well-chosen covers and back again.

Our mission was to take you on a memorable trip with no chemical enhancements necessary.

Today I strive to achieve that same goal in all my musical projects.

The Thoughts of Chairman Tim

  • Bortz brand chocolate rabbits are supernatural beings of great power. They are the source of all mischief and subdural disease, yet they are also kind and must therefore be worshiped.
  • Whoosh! Corrosive Bean Dip Alert!! Run for your lives!!!!!!
  • The shrieks and moans of guitar feedback can be used to contact the Great Beyond.
  • Crash Watermelon. Warm Elephant Vanilla. Vrooom vrooom!!!!
  • What are we, and if we, do we?
