From: OR, United States
Genre: Alternative/Alt. Rock, Experimental Indie, Anti-pop
"I am experimental art, a legal alien, alienated outlaw, simply weird and extremely complicated, Portland underground, post-wave rock, experimental indie, anti-pop, a radical pacifist and mental health activist."
Current interests focus on audio engineering, studio production, electronic sound synthesis, digital formats and conversions, MIDI/VST/DAW design/application/integration, and multi-media productions. Stylistically, it is about learning, experimenting, and creatively thinking outside the genre.

Pinki Tuscaderro – It is Only a Machine – ©Rez Records 2011
With her new 2011 release, It is Only a Machine, Pinki Tuscaderro refines the lo-fi, rough and ruddy tone of her appropriately titled debut release, Demo Sins (Aug. 2009), to embark on a D.I.Y. expedition through digital audio, synthesizing an indefinable blend of post-punk, traditional blues, surf rock, country/folk, beat poetry, and experimental electronica. Resonant of such artists as The Breeders, Odetta, The Ventures, Allen Ginsberg, and Kraftwerk, this collection of songs is thick with lyrical worship, investigative fusion, philosophical inquiry, and minimalist ethos.
