Chris Lynn is a multifaceted filmmaker and Sound Artist from Maryland, USA. His work has been screened at festivals and galleries in the United States, Europe and Mexico. His short films focus primarily in urban and rural landscapes. His sound pieces are an assemblage of field recordings, ambient pieces, and soundtracks from his films.
I personally have stumbled upon Chris’ soundpieces through the various releases he has out on Earth Monkey, Electronic Music and Misspelled Records. Through time I have always enjoyed his works a lot and when Chris knocked on JNN’s door for a future release I was well stumped and immediately took him in. And I have certainly been rewarded with a fine release filled with fragile yet beautiful soundscapes from what appear to be recordings somewhere in Asia. But I believe that is not the common factor of this release. Having heard this now a few times there is a timidness in these recordings, something that nourishes the listeners ears and soul and refreshes the mind.
If you’re a fan of field recordings then this is a release not to be missed. Don’t say you haven’t been warned!

Chris Lynn The Clouds Have Settled In | marblevenus

[…] Listening to CL’s new release, The Clouds Have Settled In, is a treat! The compilation as a whole has a real Chopinesque feel to it and I’d venture to label this as modern chamber music in two senses. On one hand, the pieces have an atmospheric yet intimate quality to them that strikingly resembles the various moods characteristic of the Polish composer’s Preludes and Nocturnes. But also, the close, comforting warmth of these compositions is reminiscent of the intimacy of Lynn’s experimental chamber cinema; the sensual music and rhythm of each movement harmoniously gives shape to an equally evocative visual aspect.  Profound, yet unencumbered and light as air, Lynn’s work mesmerizes the soul while stimulating the mind and imagination… link is here  JY […]
