Who is Chris?

Throughout his career, Chris Alpiar has spent significant time as a performer, composer and arranger, writing for all styles of music and arranging for big band, strings, and just about every type of popular music ensemble known. He studied at Berklee College of Music dual majoring in performance and jazz composition, receiving the Quincy Jones Award in 1994.

As a performer Mr. Alpiar has played on hundreds of recordings and toured North and South America and Europe. He has spent significant time in the Jazz circuit in New York and had the extreme pleasure of having shared the stage with world class musicians including Randy Brecker, Peter Erskine, Eliane Elias, Joe Lovano, Michelle Petrucciani, Trilok Gurtu among others.

With extensive knowledge in audio engineering, multi-media production and using MIDI as a composition tool, Mr. Alpiar's focus on technology and the internet led him to the creation of Businessounds, Inc., a multimedia technology company in South Florida. He was hired by Seattle based InfoSpace, Inc in 1998 which eventually led to the creation of InfoSpace Studios, where he designed, built and managed a million dollar facility for video tracking and post-production, and an international RealServer webcasting facility. Pioneering ideas showcased at RealNetworks and Macromedia websites, Mr. Alpiar fathered several multi-media concepts for the internet with audio, animation, and video.

Since that time, Chris has been actively involved as a composer, writing for orchestra, jazz ensembles, rock and pop bands, hip hop tracks, and all manner of known (and unknown) musical styles. He spent a year co-writing a Broadway musical with composer John Comfort: "Shapin' Up", a musical comedy by Scott Adler.
