Christopher Fox is a composer who sometimes writes about music too. Often working at a tangent to the musical mainstream he has based his compositional career around close collaborations with particular performers, including the pianists John Snijders and Philip Thomas, singers Juliet Fraser and Elizabeth Hilliard, and the ensembles, Apartment House and EXAUDI. His work attempts to embrace many of the possibilities of contemporary music-making, with a particular focus on new approaches to voices, instruments and tuning systems, and is the subject of the book Perspectives on the music of Christopher Fox: Straight lines in broken times (Asghate-Routledge, 2016). Recordings of his music are available on the Ergodos, Hat Hut, Metier and NMC labels.
