Christopher Willits is a musician, artist, and educator based in San Francisco, California, who believes that music and deep listening can catalyze inner change. Focusing on three-dimensional ambient electronic music, created with processed guitar and voice, the weaving and folding of sound is designed to be within.

Often overlapping with earth-inspired photos and videos he creates, Willits’ music has forged a world-wide audience that listens intently. Pioneering solo albums on 12k and Ghostly International, along with collaborations with Ryuichi Sakamoto, Tycho, Zach Hill, and many others, has created a prolific and diverse catalog of sound. Willits is also the director and co-founder of Envelop, a non-profit organization with a mission to amplify the unifying power of music through immersive listening spaces and spatial audio production software.

As an experienced educator, he strives to illuminate people’s vision and creativity in music, art and life, and has lectured at many leading institutions in the world. Willits also teaches meditation techniques that often accompany his music.
