Christopher Llarks was born April 1976 in Birmingham, AL., and spent his teenage years playing guitar and singing in a handful of local bands. It was in these local bands that Chris began exploring his love of melodies and ambient textures, and also discovered inspiration from the fiercely independent spirit of early American Hardcore. Initially his sound was crafted and honed using multiple analog delay pedals, amp volume and 4-track cassette recording techniques. Later on, under the guise of Accelera Deck (1996-2006), Chris utilized digital sound processing, and beat programming to create an even more abstract sound. It has been the marriage of these two seemingly unrelated sound worlds that has given birth to Chris’ underlying philosophy to “always seek the merger of opposing ends of the spectrum, like the yin and yang, or the push and pull of noise and melody.” And finally, Chris created Llarks after a time spent writing, and rediscovering his approach to recording and releasing music. This is truly the sound of a man following his heart through sheer perseverance and twenty years of independent artistry.

and sustaining, humming misty chords of pastoral quietness.”
