Chaz Knapp Profile

Chaz Knapp is a twenty-something composer / artist. He was born and raised in Southern California but has since relocated to a small town in Missouri. He began playing the guitar at the age of nine and began performing throughout various clubs in the Inland Empire at the age of eleven, focusing primarily on classical and blues guitar.

Chaz then began experimenting with different genres and instruments. At fifteen, he started his own record label [Delude Records, 2003 – 2005]. He signed two musicians from Michigan who called themselves Our Brother the Native. Chaz would later join the band and they accomplished recording their first album, Tooth and Claw [2006], over the internet, without having ever met in person. Our Brother the Native was signed to Fat Cat Records in 2005 until 2009.

During that time, Chaz had begun delving into classical composition at eighteen. His work has been featured in many short films and commercials. Chaz currently works under the moniker Analogue, which focuses on creating compositions that are often built on the beauty of simplistic melodies and heavy use of meditative drones.

Review for OVUM by Chronotope Project

Crafting a concept album is an incredibly difficult task. Tying together a cohesive narrative across a record’s worth of songs isn’t just daunting, it’s an endeavour that even some of the industry’s finest have failed to do memorably. This task, however, becomes notably more difficult when you’re dealing in the abstract via instrumental soundscapes. That is what Chronotope Project, the moniker of composer Jeffrey Ericson Allen, attempts to do with his latest project, ‘Ovum.’
