Emmy Award winning composer Chris Child also produces electronic music for himself as Kodomo. The alias, the Japanese term for "child," references his upbringing in Japan.
Based in New York, Child has also contributed music for a handful of games developed by Harmonix, including Amplitude, Frequency, and Phase, and some of his productions have also been used by NPR. Child's Kodomo work is often melodic and dreamlike in nature, drawing from orchestral music, ambient, and IDM, among other styles. During 2007 and 2008, his Kodomo releases, including the album Still Life, were issued on the 5 Points label. He self-released the 2011 album Frozen in Motion. A third album, Patterns & Light, arrived in 2014. Three years later, he released Divider, an EP incorporating found sounds into its atmospheric, sometimes beat-driven pieces
