Spend your sunday afternoon in Aalst (Belgium) with an exclusive concert by Christina, an Amercian composer, graphic designer and video artist who lives and works in Brussels. Her musical work is known from an earlier collaborative project The Dead Texan together with Adam Witzie (Stars of the Lid). Ever since, she created three solo albums of orchestral ambient music for the music label Kranky.

Her albums are often supported by dreamy shortfilms.
