about

Christopher Beatty is a composer, sound designer, multi-instrumentalist, and actor with a penchant for the absurd. He focuses on creating aural ‘textures’ filled with found object percussion, classical instrumentation, and non-tonal sounds. Coming from a background of modern chamber music and a wide-array of contemporary styles, Christopher’s music, at times, blankets every corner of the theater in thick wool, while in others, barely audible fragments of sound sneak into your subconscious. Preferring stark contrast in sound, you can expect harsh, abrasive, and dissonant tones to be offset with melodic, delicate lines. Recent projects include Jewish Theatre Collaborative’s Davita’s Harp, Salt and Sages’s Hamlet and Twelfth Night, Fuse Theatre Ensemble’s Tether: A one woman anti-circus, and the Spectravagasm series. He is currently a company member at The Reformers.
