Andrea Pensado – electronics – Salem Ma.

works with sound as performer, composer and programmer. She studied in Argentina and Poland where she graduated in Composition with honors. Pensado plays solos and collaborates frequently with other improvisers. She performs extensively across the United States and has been featured on numerous occasions in Europe and South America as well. Her performances take place in all sorts of varied venues from regular concert halls to art galleries, clubs, lofts, basements, record stores and “house-shows”. She has releases with Zeromoon, Feeding Tube Records, YDLMIER, Hidden Temples, Pan y Rosas, Ayurvedic Tapes and LITL. Since 2010, she also runs Sonorium, a quarterly series of experimental music in Salem, MA. Pensado uses Max as her main programming tool. The voice is constantly interwoven in her music. Occasionally, the combination of the performance situation, the often abrasive sounds, the irrational use of the voice and the inherent uncertainty of improvisations contributes to discoveries of unknown places in her mind.
