Christopher Cundy (born 1976) is a British musician, composer and artist.
Cundy plays bass clarinet, saxophone (tenor, soprano, and baritone), contrabass clarinet, electronics, and percussion. He has composed music for a series of projects under his own name and collaborated with Timber Timbre, Guillemots, Fyfe Dangerfield, Cold Specks, Little Annie, Devon Sproule, Edd Donovan, Kristin McClement and Longstone. He has been involved in theatrical productions with No Fit State Circus, Shakespeare's Globe and Florian Zeller's 'The Mother'.
Cundy's piece "Winter Roses" from his solo bass clarinet album The Disruptive Forest was included on Stuart Maconie's BBC6 Music "Freakiest Tunes of 2017".'.
Cundy grew up in Medway, Kent and was drawn into the local music scene where he became friends with Billy Childish (artist, musician and founder of Hangman Records). He took up busking at the age of 14 and then became involved in free improvisation and popular music.
He studied Fine Art/Painting at Cheltenham Art College. During this period he began Grace & Delete, a duo with painter and electronics musician James Dunn. He also started to explore self-developed playing techniques such as multiphonics, circular breathing, microtonality, and a more tactile approach to the instrument. This led him to working with composers such as Thanos Chrysakis and Pete M. Wyer.
At Cheltenham he met songwriter Fyfe Dangerfield, who he has collaborated with on, most notably as an additional saxophonist for the Mercury Prize nominated pop band Guillemots.
