Chris Vaisvil aka Chris and the Clones

Hi, this is Chris!

A Clone

Welcome, my MODs webpage was last updated 02/11/2010

Please play my compositions in ModPlug Player


MODs = Music Modules - a combination of samples and computer instructions that describe how to play the samples
Music modules stand half-way between MP3s and MIDI files and often combine the best of both.
