Christopher Hobbs was born in Uxbridge, Middlesex, on September 9th 1950. After 3 years as a Junior Exhibitioner at Trinity College of Music, where he studied piano and bassoon, he went to the Royal Academy of Music, where his tutors were Cornelius Cardew (composition) and Patricia Brady (percussion). In 1968 he founded the Experimental Music Catalogue, a publishing venture aimed at disseminating scores by young composers, and joined AMM music, an improvisation group with whom he played for some 3 years. He also participated in the early days of the Scratch Orchestra and gave concerts of experimental music in England and on the continent with Cardew, Gavin Bryars, John Tilbury, Christian Wolff and others. Since 1971 he has played in various West End musicals and has given many concerts with John White as a percussion (and latterly piano) duo.
