Andrea Pensado

After rigorous academic studies as a composer, Andrea Pensado finds herself playing frequently at noise shows and improvising with the most aesthetically diverse musicians. This totally unexpected and joyful turn in her life took place very gradually. Nowadays, 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 her music, generate a deeply personal sonic language which often gives rise to intense responses in the most varied audiences. Pensado performs extensively in the US and abroad. She also produces Sonorium, a series of experimental music based in Salem, MA. More info: http://www.andreapensado.com

Recent highlights have been appearances at NYC's Bossa Nova Civic Club and at the Melting Point NYE Fundraver party.

She has released recordings through EyeVee, Flag Day Records, Never Anything Records, Urban Arts Berlin and others, and performs widely throughout the Northeast. She has presented installations and workshops at Outpost Artist Resources, Fridman Gallery, EMPAC, Wave Farm, Cornell University and other venues. More info: http://jenkutler.com

 

JoAnn McNeil

While the world at large continues its sluggish, incremental awakening to the embodied artistic brilliance of black women, it would be easy to say that JoAnn McNeil has quietly birthed a collection of living sound and sight fully immersed in the lived-in dystopia that many black women experience on this very same world. The noise of it all (and, yes, in fact “noise” as evidenced by pieces like “Invisa Cell” with its Suzanne Cianni-esque dirge or the ambiance of “Blind Eye” and its Top 40 dance hit in a post Weyland-Yutani world) suggests that nothing from this oeuvre could materialize quietly. Yet, here we are, finally witnessing an artist gently exploding (if you will) from the strange environs of her birthplace of St. Louis (as documented in the photography series “Broken Homes”) and onto stages, galleries, and afro-futurist festivals from St. Louis to Philadelphia. Though it must be said: JoAnn McNeil is not a noise musician or sonic landscaper, but a being kemetically tethered to this world, speaking in vibrations and alien choral hums. JoAnn McNeil's photography and design are not washed out moments of contemplative exhibitionism, they're active sigil work fused together from a shattered kaleidoscope and pixelated cels mimeographed from Octavia Butler's lost visions. While McNeil's love of creating cut-n-paste soundtracks from glitches that have returned from space with modular synths and various apps remains, it is in the synthesis of the visual, the kinetic, and the spiritual that empowers her work. In the presence of such visionary work as the “Ghost Sheets” series where physiological representations of depression and internal conflicts are navigated through stark, digitally manipulated photographs, it becomes clear: JoAnn McNeil is not a multi-disciplinary artist, she's a self-contained, time displaced spirit vessel with dials set to liberation. - Alex Smith.

Kjostad

New York City based artist Kjostad brings forth panoramic displays of nature woven with layers of carefully arranged static and electronic textures. Kjostad is the moniker of Stefan Aune who is also involved in Form Hunter and Breaking The Will, in addition to running the prolific New Forces label. Kjostad weaves together an organic tapestry of man-made and natural sonics. Capturing highly personal sounds focused on northern Minnesota, Aune takes these moments and introduces layers of electronics and magnetic tape, not just blending the two but utilizing the strong qualities of both to achieve an even more impactful statement that expresses the ultimate power of pure sound. The project has been featured in the pages of The Wire and Special Interests Magazine. Kjostad's next full length CD will be available from Chondritic Sound in 2020.
