The Brazilian producer and DJ performs a high-octane techno set.
Chang Rodrigues is a Brazilian artist based in Juiz de Fora, Minas Gerais. For the past decade, she has produced house and techno as Amanda Chang, but under her current alias uses modular and semi-modular synthesisers with skills learned at the La Siesta del Fauno studio from synthesist Ernesto Romeo in Buenos Aires.
Her recent foray into hardware has gravitated towards ambient and experimental sounds – inspired in part by her spiritual outlook, love of yoga and close connection to the natural surroundings of her home country – as she explains in this short documentary.
However, Chang Rodrigues still has a love of techno, and its this side that she explores in her Patch Notes set, as she performs a high-octane hardware session using gear from Arturia, Moog and Elektron.
Follow Chang Rodrigues on Instagram and find more of her music and mixes at SoundCloud. You can also watch a full live set on August 12 at her YouTube channel. Watch a short documentary about Chang Rodrigues’ practice here.
