Christopher Fox Recordings

Christopher Fox (b.1955) is a musician who sometimes writes about music too. He has established a reputation as perhaps the most interesting British composer of his generation, creating music which draws on elements of the experimental, spectral and minimalist traditions. Innately independent, he has chosen to conduct his compositional career at a tangent to the mainstream music industry, basing it instead around close collaborations with a number of performers, most notably the clarinettist Roger Heaton, the Ives Ensemble, Apartment House and their director Anton Lukoszevieze, and, most recently, EXAUDI, who premiered his 70 minute long vocal work comme ses paroles at the 2008 Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival.

In 2013, Gramophone magazine carried a 2-page feature article on this most non-defineable of composers and nominated Metier MSV28526 ‘Natural Science’ as the Essential Fox CD.

He lives in London with his wife Susan and various of their children and is Professor in Music at Brunel University.
