About

Christopher Llewellyn Carter


Christopher has been an avid musician from the age of six, when he first picked up the violin. He has since explored a naturalistic method of musical development; adopting a variety of instruments (from the sitar to synthesizers), writing and playing in various projects, and acquiring a wide range of production techniques and compositional skills. Attaining a postgraduate degree in Psychology has also deepened his understanding of how sound in all its forms affects the mind.

A keen sense of experimentation and a broad spectrum of influences (ranging from classical minimalism and jazz to psychedelic rock and ambient electronica) are at the center of Christopher's musical style.
