Andrea Pensado (b. La Plata, Argentina) has been based in the US since 2002. Pensado uses voice and electronics to make her music. The approach to both programming and performance is highly intuitive. The harsh cut-up noise result, mixed with the strong emotional component of the music, generates a deeply personal sonic language which inevitably gives rise to intense responses in diverse audiences.
In addition to her solo work, she has longtime collaborations with Chris Strunk & Walter Wright (Los Condenados, Bats From Pogo and Sheer Anxiety), with Jen Gelineau & Stephanie Germaine as Phurnne. Newer projects include Every Cloud (with Nico Tracy) and The Impenitents (with Andy Kivela and Erik Brown).
She plays extensively in the US and abroad. She also runs Sonorium, a series of experimental music based in Salem, MA.
