Chas Smith
United States
Bio / info
Chas Smith is a Los Angeles-based composer, performer, and instrument designer and builder that New Times magazine called “a classic American original.” He’s a maverick composer who, in the spirit of Harry Partch, creates much of his music for his own exotic instruments: resonators that sprout rods, which are bowed and struck; large, clangorous sculptures of titanium; metal strings strung across multiple resonators; and vibraphone-like arrays of metal plates.
