A busy and versatile composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer, operating from his recording studio The Rabbit Hole Recording, Christopher Vibberts has been involved with several projects and collaborations over the last couple of decades. Having composed for film, television and multimedia, he has also played, toured and produced a multitude of artists.
His project Chrystal Für came to life three years ago while taking a life-changing sabbatical from film scoring and producing in the high desert mountains of central Mexico. Under this moniker, Vibberts is set to release his third full-length album. Entitled Elusion, the album is described as “an elegy to the cycle of loss, acceptance, and the promise of restored life.”
Elusion will see the light of day on May 28th through What Are We Records. Ahead of its release, we can already hear the opening track ‘Requiem’. Vibberts commented on the track:
“‘Requiem’ is a soaring recognition of a year of trials and tribulations and an eagerness to lay it to rest. Slowly evolving tones defy gravity as they launch into space making way for an emerging synth that in its gentle pulsation reminds us how alive we still are. Requiem is an end, and a beginning.”
At once both sombre and soothing, light and dark, ‘Requiem’ carries the listener on an immersive and hauntingly beautiful journey. The track comes with an accompanying video. Watch it below.
