Renowned Australian Space Scientist, Aerospace Engineer, and Music Producer DR CHRISPY to Release His Debut Album VHS

For Immediate Release – San Francisco, CA – DR CHRISPY (aka Dr. Chris Boshuizen) is an award-winning aeronautical engineer, music producer, and songwriter who has spent the last 15 years tragically torn between two loves: Music and Space Exploration. DR CHRISPY runs his home studio in San Francisco where he is finishing two albums, the first of which is VHS, set for release internationally in stores and online September 14, 2018. VHS is a collection of instrumental tracks Chris began writing in 2003 while traveling for work as an aerospace engineer. Each track was written in a different location, titled with the name of a city, airport code, or local attraction, and captures the vibe of each place and moment in time. VHS is an auditory travel diary, inviting you along to hear and experience the evolution from Dr. Chris Boshuizen, Space Scientist, to DR CHRISPY, the Artist.

Having worked at NASA for almost five years inventing new kinds of spacecraft, Chris went on to cofound the company Planet Labs, which launched and monitors over 200 spacecraft that create a daily map of the global environment. During all this, Chris spent nearly every spare moment writing music on the one instrument he always had with him: his laptop. Much of his music was written at airports or on planes, and over this 15-year period he has amassed an impressive catalog of material with over 300 tracks. Wanting to get some of his music out to the world, Chris decided to pursue his art full-time, adopting the nickname “Chrispy” that was given to him by his NASA co-workers. Unlike other notable “doctors” in the music industry, DR CHRISPY has a PhD in Physics, and in 2014 he won the Advance Global Award for being the Greatest Australian Not Living in Australia.

Chris did not grow up in a musical household but was always drawn to music and sound. Playing computer games with his friends, he found the dramatic music from the games on the Commodore 64 and Amiga computers to be truly inspiring, and to Chris, more interesting than the games themselves. With unwavering commitment, he set out to find out how that music was made. Chris’s family never owned a computer, so he twisted his friends’ arms into letting him use theirs, and later used the Apple IIs and Macs at his high school. With the Amiga, Chris began to write his own sample-based music, including a remake of the breakout hit “Sadeness” by Enigma. He discovered MIDI and began composing tracks on the school’s Atari ST computer. Hoping one day to be able to solo like David Gilmour, he also began to teach himself guitar. With their synth- and guitar-driven sounds, Pink Floyd remain a big influence, and today Chris still listens to C64 chiptunes for fun!

Finally, Chris bought his own computer in 1998, but using it for homework was an afterthought. Instead he built an audio workstation complete with an 8-channel studio sound card and mixing desk and set out to learn studio engineering and mixing. He also took up frequent guitar lessons and recorded many axe-driven jams. Over time his workstation was replaced with a laptop, and as his space career took off, Chris naturally developed a new habit of producing electronic music while traveling.

After completing his PhD in Physics at the University of Sydney he found a position at NASA Ames Research Center in Northern California, one of NASA’s 10 centers around the US. There Chris worked on several fascinating projects, including a lunar lander, an electric airplane, and he also co-invented the world’s smallest satellite called PhoneSat. With the success of PhoneSat, Chris and his friends were emboldened to try something ambitious, so they left NASA to start Planet Labs. Today Planet Labs has launched over 200 satellites that were designed under Chris’s leadership.

Chris has no regrets about focusing on his space career, but always felt music would one day become his focus. With a lifetime of music production experience and a lower-stress job that afforded him a bit more free time, he assumed his alter-ego as DR CHRISPY, and suddenly he felt he had something to say. Chris entered a prolific phase of writing, completing over 30 new songs. All his previous work on arrangement and melody composition has really paid off, and he deftly explores themes surrounding the world’s hard problems and what we can do about them. DR CHRISPY’s goal as an artist is to connect music and tech while bringing a message of hope and empowerment to his audience.

In 2016, DR CHRISPY began creating lyrical songs in addition to his instrumental music. This material will be released on his next album project following the release of VHS. Chris still hopes one day to take himself beyond the Earth’s atmosphere, and feels he still has the passion to start another space company one day.
