Christina Vantzou : Super Interlude Pt. 2 (Music Video)

Video : ‘WaveSlice’ by Don Whitaker

Precious ambience and stately neo-classical constructions from Christina Vantzou, previously best known as one half of Kranky duo The Dead Texan. Following her recent debut solo appearance on Ghostly’s SMM compilation (alongside the likes of Svarte Greiner, Peter Broderick), Vantzou has cultivated an incredibly mature and resonant sound, all stirring strings, gravity-defying drones and distant, elegiac horns reverbed to perfection – a triumph of production and arrangement, it’s also an estimable and characterful work of composition, swelling to some truly heart-stopping melodic climaxes.

Dustin O’Halloran : Fragile N. 4 (Music Video)

Album : “Lumiere”
Track : “Fragile N. 4”
Label : Fatcat records.
Video : Christina Vantzou

Glance at Dustin O’Halloran’s ever-increasing list of projects, and you could be forgiven for assuming that he’s something of a restless spirit. His life story does little to dispel the impression – it’s a litany of motion, of different homes in different continents, and sometimes hardly any home at all. But all this activity is deceptive; or, at least, it’s just surface detail. All the time, beneath the surface, there’s been a constant, stealthy, steady pulse – O’Halloran’s wistful and beautiful music. His compositions are languid and contemplative. The melodies are hestitant; plucked, slow-motion skeins of sound that fall languidly from solo piano or from naked acoustic guitar. And although they’re delicate – miniature marvels of nuance and balance – they carry an unfailing emotional charge. It’s hardly surprising, then, that his music is now being used, and heard, increasingly widely. [Dustin O’Halloran : YouTube Channel]
