Christopher Duncan is the kind of musical renaissance man that only comes around every so often. A classically trained violist and pianist, Duncan fused his conservatory taste with a love for indie rock by teaching himself guitar, bass, and drums. Tracks like “Say” and “For” exemplify the rich, detailed arrangements that make up Architect, Duncan’s aptly titled, entirely self-recorded debut album. The new video for “Here To There” recreates the track’s lilting rhythm and gently constructed harmonies through minimalist composition and subtly overlayed shots of trains and stars. Watch the clip for “Here to Here” below.
