Sitting somewhere between electronic and ambient, Alexandra Burress makes music that evokes vivid landscapes and ancient, exotic rhythms. She is inspired by the juxtaposition of ethereal and gritty textures in sound, aiming to paint a dynamic world within each of her pieces. Based in Portland, OR, she spends a lot of time hiking in nature and collecting sound samples to use in her future recordings. These natural sounds and elements come forth in her pieces, serving as an ode to Earth’s primordial power. She’s been writing songs on guitar and piano for eight years, producing her own music for six, and is currently pursuing a Bachelor’s degree at Berklee School of Music in Electronic Music Production and Sound Design. She is currently working on an EP that will release in late summer.
