Presentation of new work
As of Monday, March 7, 2022, the Covid Safe Ticket and a mouth mask are no longer required in AB. You can enjoy our concerts as before!
After a 3 day residency at the AB Salon Christina Vantzou & Holland Andrews will present their newly created work.
Holland Andrews (they/them) is an American vocalist, composer, and performance artist whose work focuses on the abstraction of operatic and extended-technique voice to build soundscapes encompassing both catharsis and dissonance. Frequently highlighting themes surrounding vulnerability and healing, Andrews arranges music for voice, clarinet, and electronics. Andrews harnesses these instruments’ innate qualities of power and elegance to serve as a cohesive vessel for these themes. As a vocalist, their influences stem from a dynamic range including contemporary opera, theater, and jazz, while also cultivating their own unique vocal style which integrates these influences with language disintegration and vocal distortion. Andrews previously performed solo music under the stage name Like a Villain.
Christina Vantzou is Brussels based composer who deals with time expansion, surreal atmospheres and harmonies through electronics and acoustic instruments. Her releases include four numbered solo albums of ambient-classical music on Kranky, 2020's Multi-Natural; a foray into abstract electronics and field recording on the Belgian label Edicoes CN, two full-length albums with John Also Bennett as CV & JAB, and many other solo and collaborative works.
