As an improviser, Christopher combines an idiosyncratic approach to the electric guitar with a wide variety of custom software instruments. Recent projects emphasize multimedia and motion capture, integrating performance, sound, and animation into a unified experience. Across all of these disciplines, his work emphasizes directionality, layering and intercutting a variety of trajectories to create form. Xenoglossia is a custom software environment designed to facilitate the live improvisation of complex, densely layered electronic music.
The performer initiates multiple simultaneous generative processes, each with distinct gestural and textural content, then controls their continuation and development. The four tracks in this release feature studio performances with Xenoglossia, each recorded in a single take. http://universalreptile.bandcamp.com/album/xenoglossia http://unrulymusic.tumblr.com/ Read more on Last.fm.
