Andrea Pensado is an electronic composer of Argentinian origin, living in the USA. She uses live coding and digital manipulations of real time signals to process her own voice to produce noise and sonic abstractions. AP works with sound as performer and programmer. She studied in Argentina and Poland where she graduated in Composition with honors. However, gradually, her life took a quite unexpected turn, and as a result, the rather abrasive sound of her music today is far away from her earlier pieces. Pensado plays solos and collaborates frequently with other improvisers. She performs extensively across the United States and has been featured 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. www.andreapensado.com
