 Testimonials
"A master musician, technician, artist and tactician. Let him surprise you."
-- Baird Thompson


"Excellent work! Love the choices of textures and sounds--very lush! And I don't know what you've done in your stereo mix, but it really has a nice sense of life! Doesn't sound hammered or overly processed, just comes beautifully out of the speakers--it doesn't feel at all like canned strings. I can't wait to hear the other stuff with it! Thanks for your work and the complete documentation--all that stuff helps! Once again, outstanding work!"
-- Tom Hall, engineer/mixer


 Chris' Notes
Are you a fellow composer? I help admin an awesome growing online community of composers started by composer Chris Merritt. There are all kinds of forum topics, discussions, workshops and more there, so get your music out and come join the fun :D


One of my closest friends and brothers of the saxophone has his new band Swampdweller and is making a very original sound. Headed up by insane Alto Saxophonist Marc Fendel, and filled with some of Seattle's top Jazz, Hip Hop, and Funk musicians this gig is changing the shape of modern instrumental music.
