1976: Maurizio and Christina form the duo CHRISMA (the monicker is no less than the contraction of their two names; in the following years the "Ch" will be replaced by the "K").
The two move from Milan to London and record "U" and "Amore" with the help of Nico Papathanassiou and his brother Vangelis.
1977/1978: the profitable collaboration with Nico and Vangelis continues.
What was happening in London also shake waters in the house Arcieri: the duo marries the punk cause adopting its look and records "Chinese Restaurant", whose mood, rather than follow Pistols & Co. path seems a lot similar to certain works of the Velvet Underground (to which they will be compared by the illustrious New Musical Express).
The 45 drawn by the full-length "Lola" enters the Top 10.
During the promotional Chinese Restaurant Tour Maurizio experiments the notorious "finger-job" (a finger is cut on stage with a razor).
National uproar and bold titles on the newspapers, that come to write of an hypothetical loss of the finger in matter.
The accident resolves in anticipated end of the tour.
1979: Maurizio and Christina record their second album, "Hibernation", which gets a good success also at international level. They are definitively established in London.
Other "scandal" because of the video drawn by the single "Aurora B." in which Christina and Maurizio simulate suicide and sexual actions in a subway station. The clip is one of the first ones of the Italian history.
1980: change of name and third album for the band (now with Hans Zimmer - now Oscar winning composer - at synthetizers programming): "Cathode Mamma".
The single "Many Kisses" is a big summer hit and climbs the European charts. Krisma develop the first minisequencer: Krismino.
1981: the Arcieris leave Polygram for CGD and start to work in Holland at a new album that will be completed among an Alpine chalet and Milan.
1982: the experimental "Clandestine Anticipation" is released. Its sleeve artwork (by the late art designer Mario Convertino) will mark a real miliary stone. The album deals with water in all of its forms (liquid, frozen, at the state of vapor, fog, snow or rain) and is supported by a series of amazing videos filmed in tropical locations.
1982/1986: they sojourn in New York City. In the USA they will be authors of three videos for MTV; subsequently they begin to work for France 2. In Italy they often appear within different episodes of the program "Be Bop a Lula" hosted by Red Ronnie for Italia Uno.

"Nothing To do..." lyrics are by Krisma and Arto Lindsay.
