    Andrea Pensado, Domestique, Venomenema & travisDjPTSD

    TWO EAST COAST LIFE-CHANGERS SPREAD THE NEWS TO CHICAGO: uncanny valley sonic zipliner Andrea Pensado (Salem, MA) and appliance-based dance craze hitmaker Domestique (RI) plus local heroes VENOMENEMA and travisDjPTSD!

Andrea Pensado works with sound as a performer and programmer. She has been using digital media and live interactive musical systems since 1995. She studied in Argentina and Poland. At first, she composed mainly for acoustic instruments. However, she felt gradually more attracted by different sound realms. Today, the abrasive digital noise of her music is far away from her earlier pieces. Harsh dense layers of sounds, often interwoven with her voice, combine hybrid synthesis techniques to create a highly personal sound language, which reflects an intuitive, emotional and paradoxically also logical approach to music making. She currently lives in the US.
