Chris learnt piano at the age 4 by his parents, and whilst reluctant at the time, grew to be incredibly thankful to have music introduced to him at such an early age. In his youth, he picked up the guitar, spending that time in several rock bands. In the current era however, synthesis and orchestral work for video games has been his sole focus over the last 5 years. Video games are huge passion of his, spending the majority of his life obsessed with games and their soundtracks. The music in games has become the soundtrack to his life, helping him shape his audio identity today. Having spent a number of years working in IT, Chris decided to align his passion of music and games into a profession. In 2017, he also started releasing space ambient music under the artist name “Ion Stream”, influenced by his favourite Sci-Fi video games. Ion Stream can be found on all major streaming platforms.
