Interview with WMHT's Rob Brown

Recognized as the first artist to win a Grammy Award for music written for a video game, composer Christopher Tin has released a new album titled; 'To Shiver the Sky.' This album marks Tin's major label debut after signing to Decca Gold. 

To Shiver the Sky, is "an oratorio about the history of flight, and mankind's quest to conquer the heavens," explains Tin. The ambitious 11-track album will also mirror that story with the parallel evolution of Western classical music. Tin ultimately settled on eleven historical figures which are "our greatest astronomers, inventors, visionaries and pilots," he details. Each of whom serve as the basis for a composition, adding up to a kaleidoscopic epic that crosses centuries, continents, and perspectives.
