Director of Recordings: Chris Campbell

Chris Campbell

“Christopher Campbell not only makes his own extremely unique music but he also helps make music by lots of other composers happen." —NewMusicBox

Chris Campbell is the Director of Recordings at innova recordings, and is also a composer and producer.

From sit-down concerts to all-night festivals, his music has been performed and heard from New Zealand to Montserrat to the United Kingdom to the United States.  Praised as “heady”,  possessing “elements of post-Minimalism, avant-garde rock, jazz and global-fusion styles that mingle and merge with dreamlike mutability” (The New York Times) and “oscillating between the comforting and the exotic, with occasional creepy moments” (Time Out Chicago), Campbell’s compositions are profound meditations on sacred space, ritual, and sonic texture.

Campbell’s current focus is musical micro and macro systems that can combine in a modular fashion. To realize these concepts he’s collaborated with English instrument builder Tom Fox and other musical colleagues ranging from members of the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra and Minnesota Orchestra, to Twin Cities band Aaron and the Sea, and violinist/composer extraordinaire Todd Reynolds. Newly invented drone instruments, and spatial compositions where indeterminacy rides alongside cunningly detailed passagework have been the latest results of this line of work.   

For him, music continues to be a vehicle for community, for quiet assertive communication, and for bold listening.
