How can I hear recordings of Adain Can and Silverwing?

They haven't been recorded yet, but they might be as part of the stretch goals of my Kickstarter campaign.

Q

do you get an idea for a piece and then find an accompanying poem or text for lyrics or is it the other way around?


Christopher Tin responded on 02/04/2018
A

Happens both ways! Often I find a text I want to build around first.

Q

Beliefs affecting others is a part of human civillization and neither good or bad inherently. Whether others choose to view positively or negatively one's work by their beliefs is their choice. With all that in mind, is that fair to decline comment on beliefs when your work has beliefs with in it, or is that the point that the work ought to speak for itself?


Christopher Tin responded on 02/04/2018

I do believe that works should speak for themselves yes, and if a listener chooses to inject their own beliefs into a work, then that's a wonderful thing too. Music can and should be a bit of a rorschach test. But I also think that music should be free to just be enjoyed completely agnostically, without the burden of meaning or intent of composer. If all that people enjoy out of my music is some good tunes and thrilling performances, then I want them to do that as well.

Hello Christopher. :) I would like to ask you, as a composer myself preparing to enter the pro music world in a few year, did you require a real orchestra/band to record the music from Civilization 4 and otheralbums ? Did you achieve that with VST(s) and synths ? Thank you. :)

Hi! Mostly live players actually. I rarely release anything on record that's just VSTs and synths (except for the Offworld Trading Company soundtrack, which is sort of analog synth heavy, and even that had live strings and brass). I'm a big believer in live players!

Any thoughts on the Me Too movement?

A

It's incredibly important that we talk about all the abuses of power that have plagued government, business, and also the creative industries, so count me as a supporter.

Are you planning to conduct a concert in Germany?
Do you have connections to musicians / partners in Germany?

I don't have many connections in Germany unfortunately, but I'd love to start organizing some performances out there. I think I have a small fan base out there!
