Christo Squier


Christo Squier is a multidisciplinary artist who primarily works with sound and live performance; a multi-instrumentalist (guitars, voice, flute, piccolo, tenor saxophone), composer, performer and producer.

He is artistic director of progressive brass band Perhaps Contraption, who have toured internationally and relentlessly explored unusual musical terrain since 2004.

Christo released his first solo album as Squier Squier in 2016, which explored a tender, personal songwriting approach; weaving finger-picked acoustic guitar with intricate, electronically processed layers of brass, woodwind and drums.

As an actor/musician/sound designer, Christo has worked with a range of groundbreaking companies including Les Enfants Terribles, Factory, Punchdrunk, Secret Cinema and Shunt. Christo is currently artist-in-residence at Snape Maltings, creating a new theatrical performance for Perhaps Contraption.

Aside from all the musical stuff, Christo is a contact juggler and used to be a professional sand sculptor. He wishes he was better at cooking.
