About the artists

ANDREA PENSADO is an experimental musician, composer, and organizer, based in Salem, Massachusetts. While she initially composed for acoustic instruments, she was increasingly attracted to working with electronics to create a far more abrasive sound world. In her current work, she employs a highly personal sonic language using harsh, dense layers of sounds, often interwoven with her voice. Her live, interactive musical systems and use of invented language combine into inherently unstable performances full of ecstatic energy. In addition to her solo work, she has longtime collaborations with Chris Strunk & Walter Wright as Los Condenados, and Jen Gelineau & Stephanie Germaine as Phurnne. She also curates the Sonorium concert series in Salem.

MENINO DA MAE is Bernardo Bertrand from Portugal. A key figure in Lisbon’s experimental music scene, Menino da Mãe’s performances express all the anguish of living in an era where everything seems about to implode. It’s very punk, very raw, very vertiginous and wrapped up in a package of irresistible physical appeal. From the gut to the gut.
