Talk: To Shiver the Sky

Two-time Grammy-winning composer Christopher Tin joins us after his conducting debut at Carnegie Hall to talk about his past work and upcoming album. Tin is well known for Baba Yetu and Sogno di Volare, the themes to the video games Civilization IV and Civilization VI. Baba Yetu was immortalized as the first composition written originally for a video game to win a Grammy, and around it, Christopher built his debut album: Calling All Dawns. Now Christopher Tin is releasing his third album, To Shiver the Sky, built around Sogno di Volare and a musical exploration of mankind's conquest of the sky. Check out Christopher's music, upcoming albums, and live performances at:
