Stolen from his web site: Christopher Willits is a musician and multimedia artist located in San Francisco, California. Striking a delicate balance between acoustic and electronic sounds and systems, Christopher manages to defy genre distinctions while still defining a â€œsoundâ€ unto his own. His numerous solo releases and collaborations cover a broad spectrum of musical styles, and include one main commonality: Willitsâ€™ unique use of the guitar with custom-made signal processing. This home-brewed software, along with Willitsâ€™ 6-string prowess, generates a unique real-time mixture of improvised melody and rhythm. Willitsâ€™ guitar lines and harmonies fold into each other. Notes and phrases hook and weave, creating complex patterns of interlocking rhythm, melody, and texture.
