Q

Hi Mr Tin,
I'm a huge fan of yours from Perth, Australia. I always find the range of music you are able to compose astonishing! I was wondering how you decide on the different languages of the vocal parts of your pieces (such as in 'Calling All Dawns') and also how you come up with the lyrics and melody so that each fits the other so nicely?
Thanks so much!

Kind regards and God bless,

Daniel

Thanks Daniel! Honestly it starts with just being curious about the different styles of music and singing out there, and then doing a lot of online research and seeing what excites me. Finding lyrics is a really exhaustive, painstaking process... a lot of Wikipedia and Google translate work, followed by working with language tutors. Thanks for being a fan, and happy new year!

Q

Wanting to confirm that the concert for June 9, 2019 at Carnegie Hall is going to take place. This is what I want to get my son for Christmas but tickets aren't showing available yet and just wanted to confirm?

Hi! Yes, the concert is happening, however per Carnegie policy they don't make tickets available until 3 months before the concert date. So check back in March!

Q

I discovered your music through Sid Meier's Civilization and I fell in love! I'd love to see it live. Are there plans for future concerts in Europe?

I try to do one concert a year (this year was an exception because my wife and I had a baby), and I'm sure another one of those will be in Europe. Most likely the UK, but possibly even the continent. The best thing to do is to subscribe to my mailing list and just keep an eye on my website. Thanks for writing!

Q

HI Christopher, I really like your song 'Coronation' from civilisation IV. Is there any way I can get a high quality MP3 of it?? It's amazing.

I think it was never properly released by 2K Games. Sorry! I was only so-so about that piece... it was my first time experimenting with made up words (a la Karl Jenkins/Adiemus) and I decided it wasn't for me, so I decided I never wanted it formally released.

I DON'T HAVE A QUESTION OTHER TO SAY I LOVE YOUR WORK. YOU TRULY ARE A MAESTRO

Thank you! That's very kind of you.

Q

Honestly can't say how much your work has influenced my life! I work in the UK government and the unbridled hope of your music is an endless inspiration!
