Short Third Person Biography
Chris Jeffs was born in the UK but has recently moved to Berlin. Originally a trombone player, he progressed to making and releasing electronic music, touring extensively since 1994 as a live artist and DJ, most prominently under the name Cylob. He turned to creating his own programs as a way of making his sound more distinctive. His granular synthesis and visual animation software "Particularity" won joint first prize in the LOMUS 2010 competition. Recent activity has focussed on freelance development: programming for interactive installations and performances, the release of several self-published iOS apps, and work on commercial music software. He has also given workshops in programming for the iPhone and using SuperCollider.
