Victoria Shen is an experimental music performer, sound artist, and instrument-maker based in San Francisco. Though analog synthesizers are the backbone of Shen’s music, while performing live, she also plays self-made electronics, invented instruments, and acoustic objects such as a bullwhip. Shen's most recent invention is the Needle Nails, a wearable instrument that allows her to play up to five tracks of a vinyl record at once with her fingernails. Vacillating between moments of restraint and swells of frenetic and confrontational movement, Shen's sound is dynamic with a sensitivity to texture and structure throughout.
