From the article -
The San Francisco multimedia artist brings it all together on his latest album.
Christopher Willits has spent over a decade exploring ambient soundscapes, collaborating with the likes of Kid606, Death Grips’ Zach Hill and Ryuichi Sakamoto, and working in photography, video and other mediums.
His latest work, OPENING, is a audio-visual project that brings many of these threads together, combining seven ambient tracks, 45 minutes of visual, seven photographs and a “multi-sensory, multiple channel live performance.” “Sound and light can transform and inspire our imaginations,” he says. “It can be used as a tool to awaken our consciousness.”
Along with his richly textured compositions, OPENING includes an abstract narrative film built from images and footage from his travels in California, Hawaii, Japan and Thailand, in what press materials describe as Planet Earth meets Koyaanisqatsi.
