Christopher Tignor Live, Bok Joy Closing Night

Christian Joy, Christopher Tignor

Sunday November 27th, doors at 6pm

Join us Sunday, November 27th for a LIVE hybrid violin/electronic performance from Brooklyn's multi-talented Christopher Tignor. This will double as the closing night party for fellow Brooklynite Christian Joy's "Bok Joy," an exhibition of her mesmerizing fabric work presented by Open Color.

Christopher Tignor is a composer, violinist, and software engineer. His emotionally charged scores and unique focus on live, performance-based electro-acoustic practice has won acclaim within both the classical and experimental communities across 8 LPs on the Western Vinyl and New Albion record labels. He creates the live performance software he uses, shared freely. As a composer he has written and recorded work for ensembles including The Knights, A Far Cry string orchestra, and Brooklyn Rider string quartet, performing alongside them at premiere venues including Carnegie's Zankel Hall. As a string arranger he has worked with John Congleton, This Will Destroy You, Meshell Ndegeocello, and several other artists at the boundaries of popular music. As a result of his unique performance technique using tuning forks, Christopher is a sponsored artist of the German tuning fork maker Wittner. Likewise, renown software leader Antares sponsors Christopher for his inventive application of Auto-Tune as a "choral" violin harmonizer.
