Chris Lavender holds a BA from the Berklee College of Music where he specialized as a mallet percussionist and is currently an MFA candidate at UC Irvine in the Integrated Composition, Improvisation, and Technology program. He has performed professionally as a percussionist and guitarist across North America and northern Europe

gimmick instrument. However, Lavender is in such good musical
connection with Fabricius that he supports Fabricius’ quite other
worldly vibraphone playing. -Niels Overgård,
