Andrea 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 Fujiwara, Todd Brunel, Audrey Chen, Lou Cohen, Dave Ross, Adriana de los Santos, Glynis Lomon, Dave Bryant, Emilie Mouchous, Gustavo Aguilar, Chris Lavery, Mark Miller, Ava Mendoza, Borah Bergman, Davindar Singh, Zavoloka, Alexei Borisov, Mimi Rabson, Angela Sawyer, Jack Wright, Bob Falesch, Ben Bennett, Mark Johnson, Mike Dailey.

She continues using Max/MSP as her main programming tool.  Emphasis focuses on the search and / or creation of parameters for real time articulation of sound. 

The approach to programming and performance is highly intuitive. Occasionally, the combination of the performance situation, the often abrasive sounds, the irrational use of the voice and the inherent uncertainty of improvisations contributes to discoveries of unknown places in her mind.
