It was only a matter of time before we welcomed Viviankrist into the Ritual Productions family. This year saw her host an incredible performance at Woodland Gathering, including a live collaboration with labelmates 11PARANOIAS, and she was no stranger to sharing stages with Ramesses in her previous incarnation as Gallhammer’s bassist/vocalist Vivian Slaughter.
Before departing Gallhammer in 2010, Eri Isaka Fuzz-Kristiansen (Viviankrist), released three full-length albums (Peaceville Records) and extensively toured Europe with the band. Post-departure marked a shift in pace with Eri moving to Oslo, Norway and taking a musical hiatus...until Summer 2017, when Viviankrist came into being.
With Viviankrist, Eri has delved deep into her love for analog synths and improvised music, switching effortlessly between cinematic, hypnotic and affecting grooves and Cross Modulation - Bootleg Remixes is an extension, a modification and a transformation of her debut LP.
