Christopher Tignor is a violinist, computer programmer, and Google software engineer. As if it wasn’t enough to compose and craft gorgeous music which blends classical, ambient, and electro tendencies, he also created an open source software program from scratch that enables him to do so live without overdubs.
“This music is first and foremost about what can be done together, live in a room, to both transcend and reclaim ourselves from the noise of public living. I’m waging a sort of secular, one-man liturgy here; a public act grounded in ritual. These songs offer wordless hymns and pulsing harmonic frameworks one might use to focus their own contemporary values.” CT
