Artist, designer and writer Irene Chou recently wrote this piece about my music, art and process, "On Spirituality and Creativity". Here's an excerpt and the full piece below-
So liminal are the soundscapes that multimedia artist Christopher Willits creates that often his work seems like it has no man-made origin. Yet in reality, it would be difficult to find an artist who is more involved in the creative process than Christopher is. His intricate, slow-build compositions of reverberating guitar are crafted with such attention that his words hold weight when he says “what I make is not ambient, background music. I like to think of it as forceful, activated peace.”
For Christopher, peace is a theme that guides his work, and a truth he continually returns to in his own growth. Being at peace creates space for honoring the present moment so that we may experience ourselves, others, and the world as we did when we were young — with curiosity, humility, and awe. In my eyes, that is just how Christopher interacts with the world around him. ...
Our dialogue continues, and I learn that meditation is but only one type of thread Christopher uses to weave his creativity and spirituality together. He is also a long time practitioner of Tai Chi Chuan, a type of Chinese martial arts that is, in essence, a meditation of the body. That he is able to distill his practice into just another way of strengthening the connection between the mind, body, and heart, reminds me of the same muscular spirit exercised through creativity. When I mention these theoretical affinities, he says he has no doubt that his creative and spiritual path are one and the same.
