Christina Vantzou
No. 4

This latest LP from Christina Vantzou is a bit of a love-in. Getting together with Angel Deradoorian, Forma's John Also Bennett, Clarice Jensen and a fair few others, the Belgian composer allowed her collaborators to add or delete parts at will. Surprisingly, the record doesn’t feel cluttered, coming across more as the work of a hive-mind operating under Vantzou’s guiding hand. Tracks like ‘Some Limited And Waning Memory’, for instance, are full of the ambient minimalism and open spaces that characterised her three previous albums.

Zin Taylor's Thoughts Of A Dot As It Travels A Surface

Droning for laptop and orchestra, Christina Vantzou (Kranky)has made three serenely haunting records on her own. This is one of two upcoming collaborations, the other a tape with Felicia Atkinson -- on this LP with longtime music co-conspirator John Also Bennett (Forma), the duo lull new age into electro-acoustic in a startling work of art.

Christina Vantzou
No. 3

Classic Kranky material here from Chistina Vantzou’s third record, for which she enlisted a 15-part micro-orchestra. Formerly involved with The Dead Texan, Vantzou here pulls those classical instruments (and several synths) through layer-upon-layer of processing, ending up with a smooth and shiny surface.

Christina Vantzou
No.1

Christina Vantzou has worked as a visual artist alongside Stars of the Lid and the Dead Texan (where she contributes as a musician also). but makes potent ambient through the orchestral process as well. No. 1 is her first solo record, a collection made on synth and transposed by the Magik Orchestra into an acoustic incarnation. Lots of strings; lots of heart-strings.
