Andrea Sáenz, a Colombian native, began acting and singing during middle school and throughout high school. By her college years, she had founded The University of Connecticut’s record label, Husky Entertainment, which commenced her work on the business side of the entertainment industry.

Upon graduating from college, Andrea began her involvement in the world of motion pictures and worked on the Uma Thurman film, “The Life Before Her Eyes.” As a leading actress she has worked on films spanning an array of genres including dark and melancholic David-lynch style films,  black comedies, and action/horror feature films featured on NBC’s Chiller Network.

Andrea feels it’s important to delve deep in all facets of the artistic world in order to fully understand her mission, her essence, and her duties as an artist. Stay tuned for up-coming musical releases, films and live performances.

 

REVIEWS:

I did enjoy Andrea Sáenz’s portrayal of a bad-ass police secretary very much. This is what the movie needed more of: an actress that could deliver lines with ease as well as a swift kick to the head. No one else was able to match the fun and professionalism of Ms. Sáenz’s performance.

THE VOCALIST

 

Music has a universal way of healing in profound ways! I have learned the art of alchemizing pain into passion.  My art will always and forever be my most potent anti-venom! My vision is to inspire all and every generation to turn pain into passion and become accomplished alchemists!

In my latest project Dolce Ardor, I am resurrecting a gem of an aria from the 18th century and bringing it to life under a new light and lens.

It all started when...

Singer/Actress/Producer Andrea Sáenz began studying classical music at the tender age of 16 and as she furthered her studies and continued exploring colorful genres, her quest to manifest a melange of classic opera with a dichotomous musical counterpart manifested. She approached composer DTO to create an exotic fusion of an aria from an opera dating back to 1770 intertwined with trip-hop and electronic beats. This specific aria was composed by Alexander Gluck a contemporary of Mozart, which tells a story of passion, pain and ultimate transformation.

The idea is to bring this aria to life with elements of the 1700's when it was presented for the first time in Vienna. We will take you on a journey back in time creating an inter-blend of 18th century elegance with an ultraviolet experience. The story follows the quest in search of true love by the central character played by Andrea Sáenz. The fire that fuels her throughout the quest is represented by the rich piano melodies played by DTO. She appears adorned in full 18th century attire, but as her quest becomes increasingly urgent and the dichotomy of passion and pain escalate and collide, she then begins to literally dismantle before the viewers’ eyes. She is left with no choice, but to seek within and bathe in the fountain of her origins. The story culminates as the central character emerges anew in new-found divinity and freedom.

My interview with the enigmatic Linda Summers, TV/Radio Show at Conscious Talk

"Wow! What a powerful show we had with Andrea Saenz and Dave DTO Kemp today! They were excited to announce the release of The DOLCE ARDOR project: An exotic fusion of an aria from a 1770's opera with an accompanying Music Video."

My interview with lovely Mingjie Zhai for The Love Story Journal

"Andrea Sáenz, singer, songwriter, actress and producer, share moments of deep sorrow that have inspired her to produce "Dolce Ardor," a classical piece that is transformed by fusing opera with trip hop and visual aesthetics to create a classic and futurist interpretation of "Dolce Ardor," or "sweet pain". Inspired by Tool, Alex Grey and Wayne Dyer, Andrea was able to also transform traumatic childhood events into a Dolce Ardor of her own."
