Wanda Group / Christina Vantzou
Wanda Group is the project of the musician, Twitter prophet and all-round enigma, Louis Johnstone (UK), who uses crackling electronics to transform paranoia into subtle drones, pierced with slow, slightly damaged beats. By way of such labels as NNA Tapes, Astro:Dynamics and Opal Tapes, Johnstone has had a number of phenomenal releases in recent years that have catapulted him into one of the most closely watched producers of ambient and electronic sound.
The young Greek-American composer and cinematographer Christina Vantzou has been living in Brussels for some time. She initially became known to the music world as a video artist, animator and keyboard player with The Dead Texan, the band that she set up together with Adam Wiltzie. After her solo debut with N°1, with which she broke into the contemporary classical music world, now, three years later, she is performing her long-awaited N°2 at the Courtisane Festival, with three string players, a harpist and video.
