Christopher Willits may not rely heavily on the Internet to make his electro-acoustic music, but technology plays a pretty prominent role in his creative process. The composer customized his own software to make music using looping guitar tracks and drum beats. He presents those sounds along with a light show he designed tomorrow night at Arlington’s Artisphere. If you show up early you can catch an electronic music-making workshop.
