|We are VERY excited to bring ambient composer Christopher Willits to Philadelphia this evening. He is a multimedia artist – an electronic music and guitar pioneer, composer, producer, photographer, filmmaker and system designer. Named “the Picasso of sound”, Christopher uses his self-designed software tools to “paint with his guitar”, creating “mesmerizing, intricate electronic soundscapes” and lush audiovisual performances of weaving patterns, texture, and harmony. Check out the above video to get an idea of what to expect for his live performance tonight.
Willits creates immersive experiences of overlapping sound and light. Working solo and in collaboration with the likes of Ryuichi Sakamoto, Matmos, Zach Hill (Hella/Death Grips), and Taylor Deupree, Christopher has released over 20 albums within the last decade. We HIGHLY recommend you check him out this evening if you are into pretty, droney instrumental music. The perfect soundtrack to a fall evening in our most intimate venue.
We hope to see you tonight!
