Christopher Anton co-founded the alternative synth rock band Pseudocipher in 1998. Originally it was comprised of a collage of electronic synth-pop and rock inspired pieces. This resulted in two releases. These were; "Pseudocipher (Self Titled) " in 1998 and "Fragments of Empathy" in 2003. “Fragments of Empathy” (aka FOE) was produced by the French Brothers in Burbank, CA and was released on Gem Tree Records. For FOE, Anton was joined by Jon Siren (drums) and Natasha Cox (keys) of Mankind is Obsolete. The result: an underground hit song entitled “Frozen”. The success of Fragments of Empathy saw the band sharing the stage with acts such as, Berlin, Real Life, Daniel Ash (Bauhaus), and Anything Box.
In January 2006, Christopher auditioned for, and was selected as the new lead singer for the Synth Pop band Information Society (What’s on Your Mind – Pure Energy) (Think).
Anton began recording with Paul Robb and James Cassidy (the band’s original founding members) in January 2006 with Anton co-writing several tracks along side Robb. The sessions lasted until Jan 2007 and the results were two-fold; an EP entitled “Oscillator” and its counterpart, the full-length release “Synthesizer” both released in late 2007. The two releases marked the first new music from Information Society in 10 years. During 2006-2007 Anton performed as front man for Information Society, which included shows for crowds in numbers up to 20,000 in Portland, Sacramento, New York, New Jersey, and Sao Paulo, Brazil.
In late 2007, Anton recorded and released the international dance track “I’m Lost in You” which was written and produced by Electroclash pioneer Isaac Junkie from Mexico City. In October 2007 Anton joined Isaac Junkie in a sold out performance at the Club Ultravioleta in Mexico City.
Christopher Anton's first ever solo release is available now as a digital release at CD Baby (cdbaby.com). The new EP entitled "Your Perfect Tragedy" includes remixes by CASM and Anomy. "Your Perfect Tragedy" is produced by Nick James.
Christopher Anton Full length CD "Destination: X" released on July 20, 2010. A remix contest soon followed for "Lovefix", a track off the album.
