:: About Christopher Willits ::
For over 10 years Christopher Willits has been pioneering guitar signal processing and patterning. Using custom-built software, Willits morphs his guitar playing into warm folded rhythms of texture and melody. Guitar lines fold and weave into each other creating complex patterns of interlocking rhythm, melody, and texture.
WIllits has created over 15 music releases over the last 7 years, and every release sees Willits taking chances and expanding his creative vision. In addition to his solo work, a vast range of music collaborations, sound installations, and film/video projects compel him. His band project Flossin involves Zach Hill, Kid606, Nate Boyce, and Matmos, The North Valley Subconscious Orchestra is Willits and Brad Laner, formerly of Medicine. Other frequent collaborators include Scott Pagano, Taylor Deupree, and Ryuichi Sakamoto. Willits’ numerous releases and collaborative projects cover a broad spectrum of musical styles, and include one main commonality: Willits’ unique approach to the guitar and sound.
Willits completed his Master’s Degree in Electronic Music at Mills College where he studied with Pauline Oliveros and Fred Frith. At Mills he explored structure-generating processes in music; a focus not unfamiliar to former Mills affiliates John Cage and Steve Reich. Prior to Mills, Willits focused on painting, video art, sound art and music at the Kansas City Art Institute.
In addition to all of this, Willits is Founder / Director the emerging culture hub of releases, events, and sharing at Overlap.org.
