Xena Vectra is the alter ego of synth goddess Bethany Barrett. Born in the mountains of the Black Forest, raised in sunny California, she now resides in Berlin. Her unique style is inspired by synth-heavy film soundtracks and italo disco, driven by her love of analog electronics.
As Xena Vectra, she performs live using an all hardware setup, no laptop. She is always looking for new projects involving sound design, including film and game soundtracks, and is available for live bookings throughout Europe. She also appears as one half of synth duo Magisphere. Her soundtrack work includes scoring indie film Figaros Wölfe (2017) and creating data sonifications for German artist Hito Steyerl's Drill (2019), This is the Future (2019) and Power Plants (2019).
