Ambient electronic and guitar pioneer Christopher Willits will perform his new album Horizon through a multi-speaker spatial audio system that surrounds the audience. Creating a space of peace and relaxation has always been at the core of Willits' music, but this latest solo album, composed with processed guitar and field recordings within a three dimensional soundfield, takes the idea of serene ambient music to another level of experience.
As the director of Envelop, Christopher has set up spatial audio listening spaces that are powered by Envelop's open source software in San Francisco, along with a traveling mobile space. For this event Christopher has customized the spatial performance of Horizon for this room, and this special night together
Marcus Fischer
Marcus Fischer
Marcus Fischer is a first generation American musician + interdisciplinary artist based in Portland, Oregon. His work typically centers around memory, geography + the manipulation of physical audio recording mediums. Slowly unfolding melodies and warm tape saturated drones have become a trademark of his recordings + live performances alike. These sounds have found their way into multimedia installations, short flims, and even into the award winning public radio program Radiolab. Fischer has released a number of recordings on the widely respected 12k label including his photographic + sonic collaborations with label founder Taylor Deupree. In 2017 Marcus Fischer was an artist in residence at the Robert Rauschenberg Foundation / Rauschenberg Residency where he completed "Loss", his most recent album (released September, 2017)

Fischer performs solo, in collaborations, and as a member of unrecognizable now, secret drum band and wild card.
