Christopher is currently working on his third studio album: a musical exploration of mankind's quest to conquer the sky, including a new recording of his theme song to Civilization VI 'Sogno di Volare'. Set to the words of Leonardo da Vinci, Jules Verne, and other great thinkers and dreamers, the album will chart mankind's quest to claim his place in the stars.
For the first time ever, he funded the album with a Kickstarter campaign designed to bring his fans closer to the creative process. Featuring rewards like backstage passes to his conducting debut at Carnegie Hall, and attending the recording sessions at the legendary Abbey Road Studios, the original fundraising goal of $50,000 was reached within the first 36 hours. By the time the campaign ended, $221,415 was raised, shattering the all-time record as the highest-funded classical music Kickstarter campaign ever.
Because of the success of the campaign, Christopher also pledged to create a 6-song EP of bonus tracks as a special gift for all Kickstarter backers (and all those who continue to back the project through reward purchases on this page). The bonus EP will include songs in Swahili, Paiwan, Welsh, Tibetan, and English, and will be distributed to Kickstarter backers at least a month before it is widely released.
Another stretch goal unlocked by the Kickstarter campaign is a vinyl pressing of Christopher’s album trilogy: ‘Calling All Dawns’, ‘The Drop that Contained the Sea’, and ‘To Shiver the Sky’. Fans will be able to pre-purchase vinyl on this page once the manufacturing logistics are settled, and Kickstarter backers will be given a discount code for the vinyl purchase.
