Christina Vantzou, with a background in visual art, ventured into music first as a video artist / animator / keyboardist as half of The Dead Texan. Later she joined Sparklehorse on a European tour, (2007) and Christina credits the introduction to Mark Linkous as a catalyst for creating her first full length album of minimal ambient post-classical music. Christina has released three albums on Kranky records. Her work as a composer and orchestral arranger is characterized by lush layers of classical instruments, synths, vocal samples and somnambulant melodies. As a visual artist, Vantzou works in high-speed to create slow moving visual accompaniment to her music.
