KSP’s music is made up of myriad samples, found sounds and white noise from real world situations. It lends the stuff a very real texture and aesthetic that links it to the here and now, the everyday, in a very real way.

As Dot Product, Christopher and a colleague have made a name for themselves creating experimental and improvisational music based on recording sounds normally imperceptible to the human ear.
