Feeling a bit camera shy


kataStatik (aka Chris Mandra) started creating electro-acoustic music in the late'80s and began writing music integrating orchestral instruments and interactive computer technology in the '90s, while playing in various bands, writing music for theater pieces, indie films, installation art projects, and having music played in the United States, Europe, and Asia. In the fall of 2004 he was awarded a fellowship to STEIM in the Netherlands to work on his performance interface, the "manDrum", and he recently completed a three week east-coast tour that took him (and other Unschooled Records labelmates Doofgoblin and Plat) over 6000 miles from as far north as Northampton, MA, as far south as Miami, FL and as far west as Chicago, IL. He lives near Washington, DC with his wife Andrea Seabrook.
