about

Multi Natural is a new example of Christina’s organic chamber music. We enter nine composed chambers. Nine rooms to inhabit, constructed out of elements that are slowly fusing. The album is a string of semi constant metamorphosis. A gesture appears, is elaborated upon—or is halted and replaced by a new gesture. Multi Natural has multi focal points, quite dissimilar to Christina’s other works that tend to have a more linear path.

Within this album lives a composer who is not afraid to let the content take over. In this, obviously composed work, there is still a large space for all those sounds to act freely. It is almost like Christina is waiting for the music to compose itself. This technique speaks of respect and trust for the listener, since it gives thelistener freedom to personally connect the lines.

When you put the needle on this record, everything turns to stone. The music flows and nurtures. Sounds that come from various realities—molded into a mutual understanding. With each spin, new events catch the ears. Like looking at alandscape, perceiving new details close and far with every gaze.

When Christina warps both time and space for you, it comes to you as a gift.

"Multi Natural follows its own internal logic - moods appear and dissolve, time turns in on itself, voices echo. For a hallucinogenic experience through sound, it’s perhaps the most impressive and transformative record we’ve heard this year - highly recommended (...)" Boomkat

"これは凄い!MUST!! またしても下半期ベスト級の一作が到来!先日も弊店でも大人気だった”CV & JAB”でも傑作を残したベルギー・ブリュッセル拠点の女性作曲家にして〈Kranky〉や〈Sonic Pieces〉からも作品を発表してきたChristina Vantzouによるソロ最新作が、意外にもLieven Martens Moana主宰の〈Edições Cn〉から登場!アコースティックとエレクトロニクスの境界さえも揺らがせた、夢現な音響のなかで、幽霊のようなヴォイスが跋扈したり、ストリングスや生活音が溶け合ったり。冥界を探訪するかのごとし超常的な音像と〈Edições Cn〉作品らしい海洋性の美しさがみごとに溶け合った傑作モダン・クラシカル/チェンバー・ミュージック。Roman Hieleによるマスタリング。限定300部。既にレーベル完売につきお見逃し無く!!"
