“In this synchronized swim between electronic and acoustic instrumentation, Andrew Tuttle is able to coax out the most sonorous elements of both – riding that golden mean where the two become indistinguishable.” – Tome To The Weather Machine

Chris Rainier is a multi-instrumentalist, performer, composer/improviser and visual artist from Melbourne, Australia, now based in London.
For the last decade he has focused on extending the sonic possibilities of the lap steel guitar beyond its historic use and context. Drawing on traditional techniques and repertoires, he has explored new musical territories within an improvisational framework, embracing a disparate range of musical influences: 20th century classical, tape looping, just intonation, drone, exotica, futurist noise and pre-war hawaiian steel guitar.
He has performed nationally and internationally at various festivals, art galleries and non-traditional performance spaces, often improvising live soundtracks to film. During a recent tour of Japan he performed alongside Masaki Batoh, Taku Sugimoto, Tetuzi Akiyama and Giovanni Di Domenico.
