Cristina Spinei is a Juilliard-trained composer who has written for numerous orchestras and chamber ensembles. She is best known for her work with dance, having been commissioned by the Nashville Ballet, Parsons Dance, the New York Choreographic Institute, the Pacific Northwest Ballet, and many more. Self-described as “minimalish,” Cristina anchors her musical ideas in melody, movement, and loops, informed by her love of multimedia collaboration. Her work Prelude, recorded by the Gateway Chamber Orchestra, was the first new orchestral piece to be released as an NFT. Cristina’s other NFTs include a programmable string quartet for Async Art, audiovisual Triptych with artist Marterium, and Occulta Verba — an audiovisual cryptogram created with artist luxpris.
