 Testimonials
"IT WAS A SPECIAL HONOR TO WORK WITH CHRIS ALPIAR. A TRUE MUSICIAN IN HIS OWN RIGHT, HIS DIGITAL ORCHESTRATIONS ARE BRILLIANT. YOU FEEL YOU ARE EXPERIENCING A VIENNA SYMPHONIC CONCERT. (A DREAM COME TRUE FOR ALL MUSICIANS AND SINGERS.) BRAVO......"
-- Primo Kim, jazz pianist/singer


"Excellent work! Love the choices of textures and sounds--very lush! And I don't know what you've done in your stereo mix, but it really has a nice sense of life! Doesn't sound hammered or overly processed, just comes beautifully out of the speakers--it doesn't feel at all like canned strings. I can't wait to hear the other stuff with it! Thanks for your work and the complete documentation--all that stuff helps! Once again, outstanding work!"
-- Tom Hall, engineer/mixer


 Chris' Notes
Attention Dayton Rock fans! Go see Orange Willard and see the high energy new sound they are making. They have a new album coming out (with a track with your's truly playing sax) and are leading the way in the Dayton Band Playoffs. So if you like to rock, make sure you get out and see this band thats just bustin at the seams with heat.
