Dutch DJ, producer and multidisciplinary artist upsammy (Thessa Torsing) creates interpretative spaces, cleverly paradoxical in their concurrent comfort and desolation. With a keen ear for crystalline melody and intricate rhythm, she creates impressions of perpetuity and spatiality through her compositions. Sliding across tempo scales while retaining an organic touch, upsammy’s music hums with the gentle sounds of nature digitized. Her adventurous and narrative approach to composition translates to her DJ sets as well. The music she plays takes cues from trippy electronics, the more experimental side of DnB and oddball techno.
Having studied Image and Media Technology at the Utrecht University of the Arts, upsammy is intrigued by the rhythms and vibrational qualities of her surroundings. As a multidisciplinary artist, she researches these interactions through sound, photography and video, explorations which simultaneously influence her music production process.
