As a kid, Christopher Ian Brooker was often found rummaging through the electronics in his grandfather’s basement workshop.
By high school he had fully disassembled and reassembled his first electric guitar, built a custom pedal of his own design, and begun his dive into production and sound manipulation. The techniques evolved, college ensued, and his project Where Are We was born from his education in analog audio production and his deep seated infatuation with experimentation. The first album, And.Who.Are.All.These.Mystics, was highly received with various different blogs and his follow up EP Engineer’s Handbook Vol. 1 was named Best Of by Creative Loafing. This eventually led to a slew of film scores for The Demon’s Rook, Tether, and Bad Blood: The Movie, which won several different awards at film festivals all over the US and Europe and earned a glowing write up in the LA Times. It was with this new found love for the overlap between audio and video, that he began to experiment with what would become In Continuum, his live a/v performance and corresponding album. This new inception uses video projection, light art, and deeply integrated aural stimulation to bathe the listener in an experience somewhere between particle physics, the outer reaches of the cosmos, and the meta physical mind deep within ourselves. Hit play on the first single “Quanta” and get a taste of the kaleidoscopic offerings that are Where Are We.
