About Christina Wheeler

Vocalist, composer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist, electronic: Christina Wheeler’s musical explorations have ranged far and wide, including forays in techno, house, 2-step, drum and bass, breakbeat, soul, dance hall, dub, world music, ambient, free jazz and improvisational forms. In her live solo electronic performances, she blends an organic, fluid amalgam of improvised electronic music from a variety of sound sources, which include: processed vocals and vocal loops, hand-triggered sampler playing, processed four-octave electric mbira, processed electric autoharp, processed Q-Chord and theremin, sofware instruments, and live effects processing. Previous band projects include Wiremouth, Floating People, and BlowOut, and current projects include solo song-cycle series, solo instrumental improvisational compositions, The Magical Garden, an ensemble-based multi-media performance/ generative installation project, and collaborations with Laraaji, Vernon Reid, Hprizm/Priest, Greg Tate and Satch Hoyt. A native of Los Angeles, California, Ms. Wheeler is a graduate of Harvard and Radcliffe Colleges, and Manhattan School of Music. She has performed and recorded internationally in collaboration with a variety of artists, including Vernon Reid, John Cale, Jamie Lidell, Murcof, A Guy Called Gerald, Swayzak, DJ Logic, DJ Olive and Lloop of We™, Marc Ribot, Chris Whitley, Zeena Parkins, John Carter, Fred Hopkins and Andrea Parkins. Ms. Wheeler was also a featured artist with David Byrne, whose band toured the U.S., Europe and South America, performed on The Late Show with David Letterman, as well as on PBS’s Sessions at West 54th Street series. Ms. Wheeler also sang at Central Park Summerstage's Joni’s Jazz benefit concert (featuring the music of Joni Mitchell) along with Chaka Khan, PM Dawn, Ravi Coltrane and Vernon Reid. Ms. Wheeler has presented her solo, collaborative, and band performances at a variety of local venues in New York City, including P.S. 1, Roseland, Bowery Ballroom, Irving Plaza, The Anchorage, The Kitchen, Joe’s Pub, Knitting Factory, Soundlab, Unity Gain, Roulette and Tonic, where she has been a regular performer and curator.

She reprised her performance of this piece with the Sirius String Quartet at Roulette and Joe’s Pub, both in New York City. She performed and participated in the original development team for Sekou Sundiata and Craig Harris’ opera "The Return of Elijah, the African." She also collaborated with DJ Olive on a new live electronic music score for the 1927 Japanese silent classic, A Page of Madness, a performance sponsored by the New York Underground Film Festival.
