CHRISTINA VANTZOU is a Missouri native of Greek descent who resides in Brussels, Belgium. She has explored sound for over a decade and also conducts ongoing visual research, mostly in animation, film, and highspeed photography. Her musical releases are largely associated with the American label Kranky and her performances are characterzied by a loosening of time.

A graduate of The Juilliard School, she studied with Joel Krosnick, Harvey Shapiro and has taken master classes with many composers such as Milton Babbitt, Elliott Carter and Roger Reynolds.

JONATHAN TURNER is a Brooklyn-based artist working in video, animation, print, installation and performance. As a solo artist and as a member of the art collective Yemenwed, Turner has been exploring the circumstances and depiction of an increasingly technology-influenced human and natural world. Turner has collaborated with musicians Clarice Jensen, Glasser and Dutch E Germ, artists Tauba Auerbach, Matt Keegan, Josh Kline and Anicka Yi, and fashion designers Hood by Air and Telfar. Through his solo practice and collaborations, Turner’s work has been exhibited at The Kitchen, New York; the Perez Art Museum, Miami; Tate Modern, London; MoMA, New York; MoMA P.S.1, New York; MOCA, Los Angeles; Palais de Tokyo, Paris; Mori Art Museum, Tokyo; and Hirshhorn Museum, Washington D.C.
