Alejandra Cárdenas aka Ale Hop, born in Peru, is an artist and experimental instrumentalist. In her live performances, she builds sonic layers of physical intensity, bringing forth a diverse repertoire of extended techniques for electric guitar combined with real-time sampling devices. She holds a Bachelor’s degree in Art History and a Master’s degree in Sound Studies, completed further studies in the History of Science and Technology, and is currently pursuing her Ph.D. at the Berlin University of the Arts. She co-founded the Berlin-based festival Radical Sounds Latin America and now directs the publication Border-Listening/Escucha-liminal and the editorial platform Contingent Sounds, which facilitates critical discourse and artistic research on listening. Ale Hop’s work has been performed, screened, and exhibited at institutions and festivals worldwide.
