the latest album
Bodies of water – and the mysteries that lie beneath their surface – is the thread that runs throughout this deeply-layered audio travelogue. Inside these three extended tracks,

My goal is to create a uniquely emotional experience. It has already been featured on numerous playlists, and was named one of the best Ambient/Space Music releases of 2022 by Lloyd Barde.

We Only Came to Dream
After a 20 year wait, the new Alias Zone album is finally out. Over the course of three extended pieces, Chris displays his Berlin School roots in the sweeping Ash Tree Window, while also revealing his spiritual, gently tribal/ambient side in the gentle Navajo-influenced Dream Catcher and the epic Aztec-themed Náhuatl – a special version of his SoundQuest Fest 2021 performance. Two pieces also contain flute solos by old friend Richard Bugg, who appeared also on Lucid Dreams.
