Williams, Chris (b1986)

Chris Williams

born: 1986
country: Australia

The Philadelphia Inquirer recently called Chris Williams’ music 'a lovely shade of wistful', while the Daily Review noted his 'brilliantly unsettling music' for the Sydney Theatre Company’s production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream. His music is elemental and monolithic. Ideas of growth and form, emergence, drift and self-similarity, appropriated from biology, as well as precepts that have resonance across art-forms, science, and nature like colour, line, shape, pattern and process inform and permeate his music. In 2018 Chris attended the Takefu International Music Festival in Japan as a featured composer where two commissioned works were premiered. His piece a golden string was the featured musical work at the unveiling of William Blake’s new gravestone in London and was broadcast on BBC Radio. He is a graduate of the Sydney Conservatorium of Music and completed a Master of Philosophy in composition at the University of Oxford, studying with Professor Robert Saxton. In 2015 Chris Williams was the inaugural Friends of the National Library of Australia Creative Arts Fellow. He is an Associate Artist at the Australian Music Centre.
