When she gets on stage, Mexican-born Vienna-based producer Alyssa Auvinen Barrera becomes LDY OSC. A frontier-busting scrambler of sines by trade, Alyssa began her musical journey in the late ’90s when she felt a connection to the rage of heavier industrial sounds. By 2007 she was immersed in electronic music and soon turned her sights toward DJing. After learning electronic music production techniques, Alyssa moved to NYC in 2010 to attend university, graduating with a BFA in Liberal Arts and Science with a Major in Music and Sound Engineering.
If she has long been taking part in synth-punk/wave projects such as Artefactos De Dolor – alongside Todd Sines and Archetype – whose debut LP ‘La Niña’ came out earlier in 2019, LDY OSC is now spreading her wings as a solo artist. After releasing the single ‘OAO’ on The Bunker New York 15-year anniversary compilation, quickly followed by her first solo effort on the label, ‘Magic² of 8 EP’, in 2018, Alyssa made a further impactful impression with ‘sōt’, issued via Swedish label, Kontra-Musik, and which could be presented as the “dub version of the Chernobyl meltdown”.
Showing a much different facet of her craft, LDY OSC’s own take at the dance and festival-oriented music continuum can be heard on her upcoming ‘Electric-Earthy-Esoteric EP’, released on c.l.a.w.s and Solar’s label, Squirrels on Film. A citizen of the universe to its widest extent, just as comfortable incorporating foreign cultures and languages into her art as she is toying with the semantics of analogue music, LDY OSC is just getting started.
