Artist of the Day: Kodomo

“Chris Child, aka, “Kodomo” grew up in Tokyo, Japan, where he studied piano from the age of 4. He attended Berklee College of Music where he studied classical composition, and graduated in 1999. He currently lives in Brooklyn, New York.

Chris has worked on remixes for artists including “Freezepop”, Omar Faruk, “Dead Radar”, Xandy Barry, and Sara Fimm, to name a few, and has music featured in the popular Harmonix video games “Phase”, “Amplitude” and “Frequency.” He has also composed music for several independent films including the award winning documentary “Silences” by film director Octavio Graham.

As an artist, he is interested in exploring how non musical mediums such as images, objects, landscapes, and weather can be used as conceptual material for musical ones. Much of his music is motivated by places and abstract experiences. Such things might be a photograph, passing over a landscape in a plane, an interesting work of architecture, or the way lighting effects an environment (Last.fm, 2011).
