For the first time ever, the recordings that Christopher Willits used to create an entire album, "Tiger Flower Circle Sun", are now available to the public for remixing. This collection of 121 samples gives artists a huge palette of possibilities to produce with, and provides a glimpse into the creative process of a visionary artist.
"Tiger Flower Circle Sun" was released in the summer of 2010 by Ghostly International. The release marked Willits' 2nd large-scale exploration of avant-pop structures- integrating catchy hooks, walls of lush vocal harmony, and afro-latin percussion with his trademark guitar processing. The album was met with critical acclaim and incredulity.
