Cathexis: Motion Picture Soundtrack is the new album by Christ aka Chris H. 4th album by the ex Boards of Canada collaborator. A soundtrack album to the Japanese animation movie Cathexis. The soundtrack was made in close collaboration with award-winning Swedish / Japanese film-maker and contemporary artist Stefan Larsson (also known as Q-N-Q) and is a perfect counterpart to his up-coming digital movie release Cathexis. Christ's music is often likened to that of fellow Scottish electronic group Boards of Canada. In fact, Chris H was an early participant in the nebulous Hexagon Sun collective from which BoC emerged and was a collaborator with the group until approximately 1995, appearing on the Twoism album, reissued by Warp in 2002. Christ H's departure was amicable and he thanks the duo on his Pylonesque EP issued on the Benbecula Records label in 2001. He followed this release with a full length album Metamorphic Reproduction Miracle on the same label which was very well received within the genre. He later released “Blue Shift Emissions”, “Distance Lends Enchantment To The View” albums, “Seeing and Doing” and “Bike” ep's. Christ.'s music has featured often on national radio, including live sessions for the Vic Galloway show on Radio 1 Scotland, and an historic performance on the late, great John Peel's show, where the legend himself asked for an encore, apparently this is one of two occasions that this ever happened. The film depicts an esoteric group of people, known as AUJIK, and their interactions with nature and technology, both of which are viewed by AUJIK as having spiritual qualities. AUJIK create and interact with artefacts consisting of unique and multifaceted artificial intelligences. Christ. has created a soundtrack of largely beat-less and atmospheric music designed to fit snugly alongside the film, which will feature in many of the major film festivals of 2012. Christ. has toured Europe extensively, played throughout the UK, and even performed in Japan, on a special five date tour. He has shared the stage with such luminaries as: ~Schneider TM, Tarwater, Joseph Nothing, Ochre, Frog Pocket and many more.
