Christopher's current work involves the creation of music and sound improvisations that can transport the listener to new realms of experience. Christopher sensed that high technology combined with knowledge of the human mind and spirit can potentially elevate the human consciousness. "It is crucial towards this goal, to create performances that are influenced first by the immediate environment, which then act as a departure point to transport the audience to another time and place," says Christopher. In this new endeavor, Currell is joined by world renowned vocalist Beth Quist, who recently finished a two year stint as the lead vocalist in the Cirque Du Soleil production of KA at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Beth is also a member of Bobby McFerrin's Voicestra project. Beth is very highly skilled with many forms of singing including Middle Eastern and Indian music.
Beth plays hammered dulcimer, flute, 12 string acoustic guitar, Doumbek, Zils, Daff, Riqq, various percussion, piano (she started playing at 2 years old) and synthesizers. She is also a trained dancer and has a true four octave soprano voice. In addition to many world instruments, ishwish utilizes advanced computer synthesis designed specifically to manipulate, and alter audio and visual vibrations in real-time. The combined influence of the audience, the environment and the intent of ishwish at the moment, result in every performance being different and unique. "May peace prevail on earth," says ishwish.
