There are few artists who inspire and thrill me like Christopher Willits. His oceanic, shimmering music is a perfect representation of the kind and open human he proves himself to be each time I talk with him. We chat here about his soundtrack work on the new film The Art of Listening, in which he is also a subject. Christopher’s work has a decidedly meditative quality, and it was fun to scratch the surface of the music and talk about his spiritual relationship to his work. Christopher’s approach toward composition seems to be a practice in both creating intention and in letting go.
My own creative work has been directly influenced by Christopher — I literally would not be doing the type of electronic music I do now without Christopher’s influence — so I have a special fondness and appreciation for what he does. I feel honored to talk with him here, and I know you’ll love this fascinating conversation.
