Composer and Performer Christina Campanella works with music, sound, and performance across artistic disciplines. Her original pieces for theater, film, and installation blend songwriting and composition with aural design, by weaving found sounds, ambient textures, and a dreamy pop-rock sensibility into cinematic soundscapes and deconstructed art songs. Among them: RED FLY/BLUE BOTTLE (w/ writer Stephanie Fleischmann & Latitude 14 at EMPAC, Noorderzon, HERE Arts Center), TINDER (EXIT Festival, Creteil), and PARTS ARE EXTRA (w/ filmmaker Peter Norrman, multiplatform sound & cinema project). As an actress, singer, and instrumentalist, she has brought her classical background to a constellation of innovators, including the work of multidisciplinary theater-artist Jim Findlay, composer-visual artist Joe Diebes, directors Richard Foreman, Phil Soltanoff, David Levine, Mallory Catlett, and many others. Over the next year, Christina will perform in three major premieres: Diebes’ experimental operas BOTCH (HERE, November 2013) and WOW (BRIC Media Arts, January 2014), and in Findlay's ambient theater-work DREAM OF THE RED CHAMBER (PS 122, April 2014). Her live-sound installation Breathe (an expansion upon Arthur Ganson’s kinetic sculpture Machine With Breath) will be presented by The Museum at MIT in the fall of 2013, and her latest collaboration with Ms. Fleischmann (sound-theater piece SONGS FOR A DROWNED WORLD) will begin haunting the airwaves in the summer of 2014.
