“Through images and symbols of conveyor belts, Russian dolls, turnstiles, and creatures of the deep, I've allowed myself to move through the world of metaphor. I stuck pictures up on my wall and I mined them. The pictures became collages, and the collages gave way to songs. The songs gave me the sense that the deepest parts of me had been heard.”

Christine brings the songs, story and images of this album to tell of the power of creative process in healing.

“thoughtfully quiet, emotionally and lyrically layered... a gentle quasi-ambient folk sonic/soundscape...”
“...White is a music/creative artist whose peers are closer to Bjork, Laurie Anderson and Dudley Benson...”
“...a very impressive album which bridges art music, folk, literature and visual images.”
- Graham Reid (www.elsewhere.co.nz)
