  1. Masterful Work. I was blown away by this. The degree of professionalism was outstanding. The very best of this genre of music. Keep up the great work Chris. Your facebook page is very extensive. How in the world did you manage to amass the collection of synths?

    1. Thanks so much. I’m blown away by your comment. In making this album (my first), my main goal was to make music I like. I’m very gratified to find that others are really connecting with it. I’ve been getting some good feedback and will continue to create.

      Regarding my instruments… I started pretty young, and have been alive a long time 😉 Also, I was marketing manager at Moog for a few years. I had a good collection when I started and picked up a few more while I was there (and since).
