Andrea Balency-Béarn is a London-based composer, musician and singer.
‘Around And Back And Around’, her new EP, was developed from the concept of creating music
based on human body movements, exploring how physicality interacts with the abstract nature
of musical form. The EP’s structure, melodic lines and rhythmic patterns are based on human dynamics and
gestures; with each track interpreting a specific physical action. Balency performed and produced the entire EP, beside percussionist Marc Pell and Kai Campos’ vocals on ‘Walking’, and the artwork is one of her own paintings.
Previously Andrea has worked on numerous music projects across Mexico and Europe, and she’s best known for scoring 2020’s Dance of the 41 for Netflix and Canana Films. She grew up in France and Mexico, and studied classical contemporary composition at the Manuel de Falla Conservatory in Buenos Aires. She’s currently a touring member of UK band Mount Kimbie and she wrote and performed music for their latest album, ‘Love What Survives’.
