About Christopher T Riggs

I play experimental music on the electric guitar.

Using springs, magnets, pieces of metal, dowels, and violin bows, I make my instrument sound like underwater pterodactyls, cellos from space, the inside of a trash compactor, alien insects, malfunctioning mp3 files, or washing machines filled with marbles. I achieve these unguitar-like sounds without the aid of processing or effects.

I perform and record as a solo artist. I do not sell recordings of my music. Instead, I keep an archive of my solo recordings available for download on my website for free and labeled according to the date and time they were recorded.

I received my Bachelor of Music in 2007 from the Oberlin Conservatory of Music and my Master of Arts in Music Composition from Wesleyan University in 2012.
