The music of award-winning composer Chris Opperman sounds like your best dream being poured into a glass, and now also like your most artistically intriguing nightmare, but more on that later. For the past twenty years, Opperman has been carving his own niche in today's modern music scene. In addition to his own music, Opperman has performed with and/or orchestrated music for such industry luminaries as Grammy-award winning guitarist Steve Vai, virtuoso musician Mike Keneally, Indian classical music masters L. Shankar (a.k.a. Shenkar) and Zakir Hussein, and former Duran Duran/Missing Persons guitarist Warren Cuccurullo, among many others. Opperman played piano on two of Steve Vai's Grammy-nominated compositions, "Lotus Feet" from Real Illusions: Reflections and "The Attitude Song" from Sound Theories, Vols. I and II, both with the Metropole Orkest and both nominated for Best Rock Instrumental Performance. Opperman's orchestration of "For the Love of God," also from those sessions, has exceeded 33 million views on YouTube. In 2001, he released the critically acclaimed Klavierstücke, a solo-piano album that piqued the interest of Steve Vai. Vai observed, “These days it’s rare to hear a person squeeze the most out of the performance potential of a non-electronic instrument. His latest release “Chamber Music from Hell” has made it into major music magazines, received gushing critical reviews from colleagues and critics alike. “Someday, Opperman will be remembered as one of the greatest composers of the 21st century” —Jedd Beaudoin, Sea of Tranquility
