About Counter Communications

Counter Communications is a music production house, publisher, label and music library. Founded by award-winning composer Chris Wirsig and his wife Marion, the production music side started out with exclusively dark music - from Horror to Crime. In 2023 a second catalog, Bright Vibes, was added that provides uplifting, quirky, whimsical and happy music for film and TV. Another catalog for songs, Fading Crow, offers contemporary and older styles of vocal tracks, often with an unusual edge, (co-)written and produced by Chris Wirsig.

On the songwriting/producing side, Chris started the acclaimed Electro Pop/Dark Wave band no:carrier in 1995 and the Electronica/Chill-Out project Virtual Conformity in 2001, as well as several side projects. He’s also co-writing and producing songs with other artists and songwriters like Psyche, Lori Barth, Briana Cash, Daniel E.
