Christopher Williams (1981, San Diego) is a wayfarer on the body-mind continuum. His medium is music. B.A., University of California, San Diego; Ph.D., Leiden University. As a composer and contrabassist, Williams's work runs the gamut from chamber music, improvisation, and radio art to collaborations with dancers, sound artists, and visual artists. He has performed and/or had work presented throughout the usual experimental music circuits in North America and Europe, as well as on VPRO Radio 6 (Holland), Deutschlandradio Kultur, the Museum of Contemporary Art Barcelona, and the American Documentary Film Festival.

 

Williams’ artistic research on improvisation, notation, and his body-mind continuum includes several articles and book chapters; presentations at universities and conferences across North America, Europe, and India; and a native digital dissertation entitled Tactile Paths: on and through Notation for Improvisers.

 

He co-curates the monthly contemporary music series KONTRAKLANG and manages sales and productions for immersive sound experience makers Charles Morrow Productions.
