Christopher has performed at Silvana in Harlem with German/American musicians Peter Knoll and Christian Finger and with American singer/pianist Lauren Lee. He was a guest soloist at the Parkside Lounge in the East Village at Everything 7.0 and produced is own concert series Sculptures In Sound at the St. Louis Artists Guild.
Braig was featured by Italian vocalist Marilena Paradisi at The Lilypad and Third Life Studio in Boston in 2018 and has performed in the United States and internationally for more than thirty years.
Christopher’s first album of his own compositions Blue Morpho came out in 2016. The 2020 version contains new material and recombinations of the original five songs. Like the artist Robert Rauschenberg, Braig seeks to work in collage using his own compositions, improvisations, films, photos and experiences to create new works of art. He incorporates field recordings as inspired by his hero Alan Lomax into his works. Braig works by the David Bowie axium, “There is no journey. We are arriving and departing all at the same time.”
Christopher Braig is the first saxophonist to win a New York Jazz Film Festival award and six weeks later debut a CD of experimental, original music at Shapeshifter Lab in Brooklyn. His second film Radio Free Newport the True Story of the Jazz Ark is a 2021 official selection at the NYCJJ and was nominated for Best Original Music at the Paris Film Festival, London Shorts Film Festival, and the Beyond The Curve Festival in Paris.
