British composer and experimental music artist Christopher James Chaplin studied the piano with Irene Denereaz in Vevey/Switzerland before moving to London in the early 80ies. In 2009 he was invited by Viennese label Fabrique to collaborate with electronic musician Thomas Pötz aka Kava on “Seven Echoes”, an album released in 2010 and presented live at the Art Brut Museum Gugging in Austria.
There he met electronic music pioneer Hans-Joachim Roedelius (Cluster, Harmonia) who later invited Christopher to take part in a “Late Junction” session for BBC Radio 3. The result of this second collaboration eventually led to the album “King of Hearts”, released in 2012. In the following years Chaplin and Roedelius performed around the world.
October 2016 will see the release of Christopher Chaplin’s first solo album “Je suis le Ténébreux”.
