Andrea Pensado

Andrea PensadoAndrea Pensado (Argentina) works with sound as a performer / improviser, composer and teacher.

She has been using digital media and live interactive musical systems since 1995. She studied in Argentina and Poland (Krakow) where she lived for 10 years. At first, she composed mainly for acoustic instruments. However, she gradually felt more attracted by different sound realms. Today, the abrasive digital noise of her improvisations is far away from her earlier pieces. Harsh dense layers of sounds, often interwoven with her voice, combine hybrid synthesis and sampling techniques to create a highly personal sound language, which reflects an intuitive, emotional and paradoxically also logical approach to music making.

Presently, Pensado has been performing solos and has played with, among others: Walter Wright, Jules Vasylenko, I’d M Thfft Able, Forbes Graham, Ben Miller, Blaise Siwula, Luther Gray, Junko Simons, Todd Brunel, Audrey Chen, Vic Rawlings, Lou Cohen, Dave Ross, Adriana de los Santos, Glynis Lomon, Dave Bryant, Emilie Mouchous, Gustavo Aguilar, Chris Lavery, Mark Miller, Ava Mendoza, Borah Bergman, Stephanie Lak, Davindar Singh and Zavoloka. She has been featured in Argentina, Brazil, Poland, Canada, Germany, Austria, France, Holland, Belgium and the US where she currently lives.

Aleksey Borisov

aleksey-borisov

Outside of his native Russia, Alexei Borisov is probably best known as a live performer with a sound and visual style that make his performances transcend the usual gig situation and resemble Beckett-style absurd theatre. Perhaps the most appropriate term for their soundtrack would be ”live collage”, often based on domestic or everyday material - ”found sounds” and home recordings of all sorts. They include field recordings of arbitrary soundscapes and conversations, mostly done diary-style with a cheap dictaphone, Borisov reciting his automatic writing-type lyrics, snippets of music from the radio, separate instrument tracks recorded for his other projects, solo playing on various instruments in a sleepwalking style or ”blindfolded”, as he has described his working (anti-)method with computers. The elements are mixed and cut up through effects in a manner which remotely resembles dj'ing with its sharp timing - Borisov's long experience as a live dj can be felt - or a manual telephone operator turning his work at a switchboard into poetry, as David Keenan noted in The Wire magazine about his live album Before the Evroremont: ”The whole is rent with fuzzy, intercepted conversations that sound like archived wiretaps”.
