About Me

I’m Chris Beckstrom.

 

I make music, I build synthesizers, I do stuff outside, in the kitchen, and on the internet.

 

 

 

 

Like everyone, I’m a lot of things. Here is a list of some of them:

Some background

Back in Chicago I taught Music Technology for grad students at Columbia College Chicago
I also played hundreds of gigs on saxophone and keyboards throughout the midwest, especially in Chicagoland. I Earned an MFA in Film Scoring from the same place. Before that, I got BAs in Music and Spanish from Western Michigan University.

I’m from Flint, Michigan and live just outside Grand Rapids, Michigan in lovely rural Alto, surrounded by cornfields, trees, and deer. I have a wife named Claire, a daughter named June, a dog named Walter, and a studio full of musical instruments.
