2 x LP: £22.99

Label: Kranky

Release date: 30.10.2015

Further Information

Album No3 from Christina Vantzou is the result of a two-year process of composing, arranging, rearranging, experimenting, and melding classical instruments with synths and electronics. Recorded in Belgium with a 15-piece ensemble of strings, horns, woodwinds and micro-choir, the tracks vacillate between orchestral, ambient soundscapes and more structured works that the composer refers to as "pillars." The internal core of the record, however, is unwavering.All tracks head in the direction of otherworldly drones surrounded by soft, subtle and sometimes intense veils or points.
