Chris Morris is an audio engineer, studio technician and DIY electronics enthusiast who is passionate about crafting inspiring ideas into reality. His creative work doesn't always start on the screen or end in your hands. His tools can vary from pixels to pliers, sounds to solder, analog to digital. He simply likes to create beautiful, functional things.
At an early age, Chris was more interested in taking his toys apart than playing with them. His curiosity about what makes things tick quickly escalated to disassembling his fathers’ stereo equipment. This obsession followed him into his teenage years where he would modify guitars and amplifiers for himself and friends.
Chris was introduced to building custom FX units and other analog based audio electronics in University. What started as a personal endeavor to expand his sound palate for performance and studio based work ballooned into a small workshop churning out guitar pedals, sequencers, and other audio oddities. Chris’s work gained notoriety with local musicians and abroad resulting in commissions from high profile touring artists.
Since 2009 Chris has managed the technical operations for the Department of Music at the University of Lethbridge where he was instrumental in the technical design of their audio research facilities, recording studios, and labs. He is responsible for providing technical training to staff, students and faculty as well as maintaining modern and vintage hardware.
