ABOUT:

Originally from the San Francisco bay area, Chris Thompson is a New York City-based music producer, arranger, and percussionist. His tracks paint introspective portraits of anxiety, glee, and sentimentality by blending the high-energy sound world of modern drum & bugle corps with the experimentalism of contemporary classical and electronic music.

Chris' work as a percussionist and arranger greatly influences his composition: for over a decade he has been a member of Alarm Will Sound and the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME), he recently toured internationally as a performer with Tyondai Braxton's HIVE, and at age 15 he was one of the youngest-ever members of the Santa Clara Vanguard drumline.

Having performed, recorded, or arranged for artists and ensembles such as Alarm Will Sound, ACME, Björk, Dirty Projectors, Medeski Martin & Wood, the Metropolitan Opera, Nico Muhly, Brian Reitzell, They Might Be Giants, and Valgeir Siggurðsson, Chris has participated in the world premieres of over a hundred new works and can be heard on 30 studio albums. For ten years he has performed in the pits of various Broadway shows, including Wicked and The Phantom of the Opera.

His debut solo EP Lot Hero was released in December 2017, and his next album Everything Imaginable Comes True comes out early fall 2018.
