Christophers first performance experience began at age
5 playing drums with his parents jazz trio. Over the
next twenty years he accompanied several jazz greats such
as Chick Corea, Stan Kenton, Cal Tjader and more. He also
studied composition at several Universities (UCSC, SJS, etc.)
under such luminaries as David Cope, Randy Masters and others.
The introduction of the drum machine created an intriguing
dilemma of either learning everything about these new machines
or becoming a bartender
he chose the former. This led
to his involvement in the development of several new musical
technologies with key manufacturers including EMU systems.
After owning and operating his own production and recording
studios for several years, he decided to focus on product
development with a new company called Digidesign. Over the
last ten years, Christopher has helped lead Digidesign to
become the de-facto standard in the recording industry as
well as post-production audio for TV and film, winning a Grammy
for Technical Achievement in 2000. Today Mr. Bock runs World
Wide Sales and Marketing for Digidesign
and enjoys terrorizing
his 4 year old twin daughters and drinking absinthe at Joes
