Christina Vantzou announces new album,Nº3, and shares first single ‘Shadow Sun’

Christina Vantzou - Nº3

Brussels based composer and visual artist Christina Vantzou has announced the follow-up to last years’s magnificent Nº2. Her new album, Nº3, was recorded in Belgium with a 15-piece ensemble of strings, horns, woodwinds and micro-choir. The album saw Vantzou composing and experimenting with classical instruments blended with synths and electronics over the course of two years.
“The tracks vacillate between orchestral, ambient soundscapes and more structured works that the composer refers to as “pillars.””, describes the press release, also mentioning Vantzou’s day job as a math teacher as relevant in this change.

Nº3 will see the light of day on October 16th via Kranky, and it comes with two slow motion videos Vantzou made using a phantom high-speed camera and a 16mm short film.
We’re already getting the first taste of new music from Nº3 in the form of the wonderful new track, ‘Shadow Sun’. Listen to it below.
