TRANSMISSION ART ARCHIVE
CHRISTINA CAMPANELLA is a composer, performer and sound artist who works in theater, music, visual art and film. Her pieces blend songwriting and composition with aural design, weaving found sounds, ambient textures, and a dreamy pop-rock sensibility into cinematic soundscapes and deconstructed art songs. Christina is both a current recipient of NYSCA's Individual Artist Commission in Film, Media, & New Technologies, and a resident artist at Harvestworks (NY), for the creation of 3D sound installation/durational performance I WENT TO THE LIGHTHOUSE (AND IT WASN'T THERE) - workshop at Hyphen Hub/The Red Door 2014; premiere NY Electronic Art Festival, 2015. Her live-sound installation BREATHE is on view at the Museum at MIT in Cambridge, MA (a collaboration with kinetic sculptor Arthur Ganson). She composed filmscores for PARTS ARE EXTRA, co-created with filmmaker Peter Norrman, co-created the multimedia music-theater works RED FLY/BLUE BOTTLE and TINDER with writer Stephanie Fleischmann and Latitude 14, and scored a musical about coat check girls, THE SECRET LIVES OF COATS, also with S. Fleischmann (2014 premiere, The Red Eye, Minneapolis). Campanella has been presented by and performed at: HERE Arts Center, La Mama, The Kitchen, PS 122, BRIC Media Arts (Brooklyn), EMPAC (Troy), Noorderzon (Groningen), Theatre Garonne (Toulouse), EXIT (Creteil), Fusebox (Austin), The Andy Warhol Museum (Pittsburgh), and Long Beach Opera. She has participated in developing works at Robert Wilson's Watermill Center, Lincoln Center's Director's Lab, Issue Project Room, and STEIM (Amsterdam). Her work has received support from NYSCA, Mass MOCA's Assets for Artists, HARP, Ramapo College, the American Music Center, Whitman College, Mid-Atlantic Arts Foundation, Meet the Composer, Tobin Foundation for Theatre, Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, New York State Music Fund, Chocolate Factory, Digital Performance Institute, Chashama, and Mabou Mines/Suite.
