Christopher Tin

Christopher Tin is a two-time Grammy-winning composer.  His work covers diverse terrain: from thrilling fusions of orchestral and world music, to brooding reinventions of 90's electronica.  His debut album Calling All Dawns won two Grammys at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards: Best Classical Crossover Album, and Best Instrumental Arrangement Accompanying Vocalists for the song 'Baba Yetu', which made history as the first piece of music written for a video game ever to be nominated for, or win, a Grammy.  'Baba Yetu,’ otherwise known as the theme song to Civilization IV, is used as a featured segment for the Dubai Fountain, the world's largest choreographed fountain, situated at the base of the Burj Khalifa, the world's tallest skyscraper.

Christopher’s career is marked by many unusual distinctions; he has both co-created the startup sound for Microsoft's Surface operating system, and a demo song for Apple's Garage Band software, now found on every new Mac computer.
