Christopher Lancaster is an electro-acoustic cellist composer living in Brooklyn, New York. He trained as a classical cellist and continues that discipline in his work with technology. Lancaster’s inspiration comes from his many collaborators from film, dance and music, and he is always reshaping and recreating the sounds and songs his instrument can create. His solo work has focused on live performance and he is a devout believer in the transformative power of live music and art. In the field of dance, Lancaster has worked with Bill T. Jones, Kate Weare, Brian Brooks, Marina Mascarelli, NDT, Lyon Opera Ballet, Dance Forum Taipei, Skanes Dansteatre, Staccato Danca Contemporanea, Nicholas Leichter, Camille Brown, Sean Curran, Paradigm, Complexions and others. He had the privilege of performing his music for President Obama at The Kennedy Center Honors in 2010. He is a founding member of the bands Tranimal and Loving You.
