    Christopher Walczak


    Christopher Walczak 是一位自学吉他手,自幼受到饶富创意的家族启发,作曲已经成为生活的一部分。成年后,他正式进入学院学习音乐创作。 Christopher 的作品包括独奏、室内乐、大型管弦乐、室内管弦乐、电脑音乐、和互动式电子音乐。
    Christopher 目前担任美国南伊利诺大学卡邦戴尔分校的理论作曲副教授。他拥有美国威斯康辛大学麦迪逊分校的音乐学士、硕士学位,以及莱斯大学音乐博士学位。他常受邀管弦乐团和室内乐团委托创作、演出和录音,包括威斯康辛室内管弦乐、威斯康辛大学麦迪森分校交响乐团、威斯康辛大学密尔瓦基木管乐团、威斯康辛作曲家联盟、Flutes Quatre、思潮新音乐乐团、Brightmusic、Ensemble Laboratorium、Relache 以及葛莱美奖得主 Eighth Blackbird。
    Christopher 喜欢探讨作曲结构并将音乐理论作为衍生的作曲技巧,他对诠释穿越于音乐存在的空间音乐也很感兴趣。

    As a self-taught guitarist, provoked by a passionately creative family, composing music has been a part of everyday life for Christopher Walczak from his youth until the present. By early adulthood a path materialized: the serious study of composition within the halls of the academy. Christopher’s repertoire includes works for solo instruments, chamber ensembles of various sizes, full symphony as well as chamber orchestra, music for computer, and interactive electro-acoustic music.
    Christopher is currently Assistant Professor of Music Theory and Composition at Southern Illinois University Carbondale in the United States. He holds both bachelor’s and master’s degrees in Music Composition from the University of Wisconsin - Madison and a doctorate from Rice University. His music has been commissioned, performed, and recorded by various orchestras and ensembles including the Wisconsin Chamber Orchestra, the University of Wisconsin - Madison Symphony Orchestra, the University of Wisconsin - Milwaukee Wind Ensemble, the Wisconsin Alliance for Composers, Flutes Quatre, Zeitgeist New Music Ensemble, Brightmusic, Ensemble Laboratorium, Relache, and members of Grammy Award winning Eighth Blackbird.
    Christopher specializes in compositional systems and uses theories of music as generative compositional devices. He is interested interpreting pieces of music as travels through preexisting musical space.
