"Watching him play would leave one stunned that he could make a guitar sound so otherworldly." — Ian Russell, Flemish Eye

In addition to his otherwordly talents on the guitar, Chris was unfailingly generous, loving, loyal, humble and kind.
It is our hope that his art and his generosity may live on through our work.

  • Dude, That's Insane

    "Seventeen animators, ranging from indie veterans to first-time artists, were each given a pair of Chris’ drawings to bring to life however they saw fit. The result is a freewheeling, patchwork project that is at times irreverent and anarchic, and also meditative and reflective."

  • Album

    Ever the perfectionist, Chris left behind a trove of compositions, from finished ambient masterpieces to sketches for voice and guitar. We've spent the better part of a year exploring and reflecting . . . stay tuned!
