Lord of the Ants - Albums
Lord of the Ant’s own galvanic, compelling brand of electronica is heavily influenced by electronic music’s eager adopters, which dutifully include Tangerine Dream, Klaus Schulze, Brian Eno, Tomita, Vangelis and many other innovators of the early EM scene. Other more contemporary influences include Radiohead, Boards of Canada, Moby, Aphex Twin, Code Indigo, Sigur Ros and Café del Mar.
Sparked by his North American adventure, Christopher developed a keen interest in various forms of North American pop culture, including comic books, rock music, ufo’s and all things paranormal. But Christopher discovered his great love when in 1981 a friend introduced him to an LP called ‘Cyclone’, by a German band Christopher had never come across. The band was called Tangerine Dream.
Christopher had always admired the early pioneers of electronic music, which included Pink Floyd, Yes, Emmerson Lake & Palmer et al, but Tangerine Dream were different - vastly different. Their music was unlike anything he had heard before and he was instantly captivated by this enigmatic new sound. It was musical poetry, brimming with esoteric allusions. It was also bold, non-conformist and touched on subjects that were not recognised as mainstream. From that point forward, Christopher became an ardent fan of the electronic music movement and the music of Tangerine Dream in particular. Driven by his passion, Christopher then began to experiment and create electronic music with his own vision and style. www.lordoftheants.com
