Christopher Wood, Guitarist: From The Vault

Christopher Wood — Guitarist

Sunday 26 August 2018

For the 30th anniversary of the original live broadcast, PBS presents an exclusive recording From The Vault of Victorian guitarist Christopher Wood. Chris lives in Gippsland, teaching and performing, and is now working on a new album.

Over many years he's nurtured a distinctive guitar style that draws on elements of flamenco, indian and western classical idioms, in a discipline of structured improvisation around original compositions.

This recording was made in Studio 2 during a live-to-air performance on Tuesday 23rd August 1988 between 10pm and midnight, when PBS was still resident in the Park Lake Building in St. Kilda. The program was 'Of Ambience and Atmosphere', which had a fluid roster of announcers from week to week, not uncommon for PBS at the time. Chris had recently released his first LP "Guitarist", and he played several pieces from it for this broadcast.

Listen back to this compelling and intimate performance by Christopher Wood heard on PBS during Global Village, Sunday August 26 from 5pm, with your guest host Garry Havrillay who produced and engineered the original broadcast back in 1988. Included here is a recent Skype interview with Chris.
