Chamber Ensemble Stasis

New music from Christina Vantzou

Like the earlier Christina Vantzou piece covered here (“Going Backwards to Recover That Which Was Left Behind,” back in January), her “Brain Fog” is a work of chamber music whose density masks its complexity, the full context of its internal machinations willfully lost in the near stasis of the undertaking. The sheer drone-like, slow-motion grace of the piece is so consuming you can lose track of all the timbral activity, the constant shifting that makes the drone so difficult to fully focus on in the first place. Like the earlier track, “Brain Fog” is from her highly recommended new album, No. 2, which the record label Kranky released on February 24.

Track originally posted for free download at soundcloud.com/kranky. More from Vantzou at christinavantzou.com.
