Cristo’s compositions lean mainly toward the large-scale orchestral sound of the late 19th century- notable for counterpoint, texture, chromaticism, harmonies and orchestration, employing an elaborate use of leitmotifs. His music reflects an influence from Wagner, and the more contemporary John Williams.

Prior to completing his studies at Berklee, Cristo’s first commercial film composition was for the award-winning horror art film, Little Erin Merryweather (released in 2003). Cristo conducted a professional orchestra as well as the University Chorale of Boston College at one of the cathedrals on the Boston College campus. The use of the Chorale in the style of a Wagnerian-chant, enhanced the dark nature of the film.

Cristo’s scoring accomplishments continued with a dramatic western River's End (2005), a mystery thriller The Deep Below (2007), and the action drama The Governor (2007).


In 2008, Cristo was commissioned to write an original composition for the Tulsa Ballet. Cristo teamed with award-winning resident choreographer Ma Cong, to compose a ballet consisting of six movements, Festa, as part of the ballet program, Mediterranea. The ballet premiered on May 1, 2009.


In 2008, Cristo wrote the score for the award-winning The Appearance of a Man (2008).


In 2007, Cristo scored his first major studio release. He co-wrote the score for the 4th installment of MGM’s “Species” franchise, Species - The Awakening with British Rock drummer Kevin Haskins.


Once Cristo arrived in Los Angeles, he worked as an orchestrator as well as providing technical computer support to augment his income. His next score was for the short film, Last Confession (2005).
