Chris Lancaster is an electro-acoustic cellist composer living in Brooklyn, New York. He trained as a classical cellist, but endeavors to expand the ideas of what a cello can be, and what sounds it can create. His solo compositions are performed live using a wide array of effects, samplers and speaker sculptures to create, encompassing, cinematic and otherworldly sounds. Chris has been the music director and composer for the Bill T. Jones/Arnie Zane dance company and the Staccato Contemporary Dance Company in Rio di Janeiro. He recently had the privilege to perform his music for President Obama at the Kennedy Center Honors. In 2010 he and visual artist/choreographer Jason Akira Somma co-founded the BrainFactory, an ongoing experiment in collaboration, music, film, dance, and visual art. In his career as a scoremaker he has created over 60 dance works with choreographers including Larry Keigwin, Nicolas Leichter, Colleen Thomas, Paulo Caldas, Dwight Rhodan, Sean Curran, Tim Feldman, Marco Evaristi, Tatiana Baganova, and Gus Solomons Jr. In 2012 Lancaster performed his solo work at the Bentley Reserve in San Francisco, and as an invited artist to the Burning Man Arts Foundation Artuminal.
