Andrea Sáenz, singer, songwriter, actress and producer, shares 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 transform traumatic childhood events into a Dolce Ardor of her own.

“I saw Tool in ’01. I’ll never forget. It was a day a lot of things shifted for me. I went through a deep deep spiritual experience. I cried for about two hours during their show.”- Andrea Saenz

What’s inside?

Dolce Ardor Andrea Saenz

Part I: Awaken
“I have a beautiful singing voice. If that’s all I have, well so be it…and that kept me alive…that feeling of having this talent…of having this sentiment within me that loved to showcase itself through voice.”

Part II: Life as an Experiment
“It was all an experiment and I’ve learned that from other people….where you just…everything…all we are doing is just an experiment. All of life. You wake up and you have no idea. You don’t know if you are going to live or not the next day. You wake up and you are just like, ‘I’m just going to go for it.'”

Part III: Characters
“‘What you showed is what I lived, and you helped heal a lot of my wounds by just watching you perform.’ That day, I was like, ‘This is what I want to do for the rest of my life.’….By honing in on this one character and helping someone else heal…I didn’t even know if it was going to be directly or not, but watching them come up to me, it was visceral. This woman was transformed.”
