The Argentina-born AP has been a Massachusetts scene presence for well well over a decade at this point, doing solo performance work making computer music something truly freaky as well as playing in the bands Phurnne (also an incredible project, alongside Jen Gellineau and Stephanie Germaine) and Los Condenados.
This video was shot by Erica Gamble at a show organized by Julia Dratel.
