Christina Vantzou and the Geometric Collective Mini Orchestra at MFA Oct. 11, 2012

Here's a dreamy, instrumental project that i'm part of for Thursday, October 11th at the Museum of Fine Arts:

Sound Bites: The Nancy Lee Clark Concert Series
Every second Thursday of the month from 6-8 pm in the Linde Family Wing for Contemporary Art - an evening of small group ensembles.

Christina Vantzou and the Geometric Collective Mini Orchestra

Christina Vantzou is an artist, musician, and composer.  She attended the Maryland Institute College of Art in Baltimore (1997-2001) and moved to Brussels in 2003 where she currently resides.  In recent years sound has become a key aspect of her artistic identity.  Christina is a founding member of The Dead Texan (Kranky) and was a touring member of Sparklehorse.  Nº1 is Christina's first solo album, a meticulously pieced together fully  symphonic score made from homemade orchestral, voice, and synthesizer samples.  Nº1 was made in collaboration with Minna Choi and Magik*Magik orchestra and released together with an accompanying film.  In live performances, Christina employs experimental techniques such as graphical notation and notation in time.

This performance will feature an ensemble of local players including members of Debo Band, Mr. Sister, Hallelujah the Hills, Metal and Glass Ensemble, and Empty House Cooperative.
