Christ. is a Scottish solo electronic music artist. His music has been notable due to the melancholic nature of his sound and lush soundscapes he uses in them. There is no religious meaning in his name; rather, it is an abbreviation of his real name, Christopher Horne.
Christ.’s music is often likened to that of fellow Scottish electronic group Boards of Canada. In fact, Horne was an early participant in the nebulous Hexagon Sun collective from which BoC emerged and was a collaborator with the group until approximately 1995, appearing on the Twoism album, reissued by Warp in 2002. Horne’s departure was amicable and he thanks the duo on his Pylonesque EP issued on the Benbecula Records label in 2001. He followed this release with a full length album Metamorphic Reproduction Miracle on the same label which was very well received within the genre. He later released "Blue Shift Emissions" album, "Distance Lends Enchantment To The View" album, "Seeing and Doing" ep and "Bike" ep.
He has toured the UK, Europe and Japan and performed a live session for John Peel at Maida Vale studios in London on 17th December 2003. This session became notable amongst Peel’s fans as being the only known occasion upon which the legendary DJ requested an encore.
Christopher Hornes latest release is an album aptly named "Cathexis Motion Picture Soundtrack" on Parallax Sounds, which Horne produced as a soundtrack to accompany a Japanese animation of the same name.
There was also an all-vegan hardcore group known as CHRIST, based out of Columbus Ohio in 2009 and 2010. They released one 5 song cassette in January 2010 available for download here: www.christvegan.blogspot.com
