"lot hero" -- any manner of individual subconsciously struggling to reconcile past glory with present reality (especially the type who used to play drums in parking lots).

"wasuremono" -- 忘れ物: "lost article; something forgotten." 


Chris Thompson is a music producer, arranger, and percussionist. For over a decade he has been a member of Alarm Will Sound and the American Contemporary Music Ensemble (ACME), and recently toured and recorded as a performer with Tyondai Braxton's HIVE. As an arranger he has collaborated with a diverse range of artists including Nico Muhly, Dirty Projectors, Valgeir Sigurðsson, Matt Rogers aka Gameshow Outpatient, and Brian Reitzell (Hannibal), and as a performer he has participated in the world premieres of over 100 new works and can be heard on 25 studio albums. 

As a producer, Chris creates music incorporating seemingly disparate tools, sources, and influences: from modern drum & bugle corps, to historic audio recordings, to vintage video game consoles and analog synthesizers.
