about

Human imagination is perhaps something of a miracle. It has enabled us to reach for the stars, make art, music, architecture, science, poetry, and all manner of creative endeavors; it allows us to move beyond ourselves.

Imagination lets us scoff at the impossible and make it reality. It allows us to solve problems, evoke emotions, travel to places we’ve never been… or create places that do not exist.

Christopher Alvarado’s Drifting Through Kingdoms takes us on a journey to some of those places, creating entire worlds through the music of this album; if you close your eyes and let yourself drift with the music, you can let your own imagination take you to places only you can see.

A talented guitarist with his roots firmly in punk, Christopher’s music is a unique blend of darkness and sweetness, of harmony and dissonance, of structure and wildness, of programmed machine sounds and organic plucked strings, and the oddest of blends of machine and organic: sampled voices, bells, pipe organ, and other instruments. Much like the world in which we live, this album shows us a bit of what is, and more of what can be.

Close your eyes and begin the journey...
