Christopher Willits Contributes to chain-music
San Franciso based musician & multimedia artist Christopher Willits has completed his contribution to the chain-music project.

Striking a delicate balance between acoustic and electronic sounds and systems, Christopher manages to defy genre distinctions while still defining a °»sound°… unto his own. His numerous solo releases and collaborations cover a broad spectrum of musical styles, and include one main commonality: Willits°« unique use of the guitar with custom-made signal processing. This home-brewed software, along with Willits°« 6-string prowess, generates a unique real-time mixture of improvised melody and rhythm. Willits°« guitar lines and harmonies fold into each other. Notes and phrases hook and weave, creating complex patterns of interlocking rhythm, melody, and texture.

Started in March, 2003 upon the US invasion of Iraq, chain-music now includes the contributions of 18 artists who have added on to the existing work vertically as well as horizontally, overlaying or extending the existing creation.

More details about the background of the chain-music project are available here.

There will be a 1 hour radio feature on RYUICHI SAKAMOTO on the Bayerischer Rundfunk BR2 in Germany on Sunday Nov 6th at 22:00. The program, ZUENDFUNK GENERATOR can be heard online as well.
