Who is Partition 36?
Partition 36 is an electronic music band created in 2005 by its sole member, Alexa Jones-Gonzales. During its formative years, Partition 36 was focused on producing trance-like sounds and electronic dance music. However, Alexa felt that the band was capable of doing a lot more with sound, and so she evolved Partition 36 into its own unique form of electronic music. Today Partition 36 creates experimental music that blends Kraftwerkian sounds with ambient textures, strong beats, and a synthpop sound, all while retaining hints of trance and EBM influence.
Alexa has been pursuing electronic music seriously since 2009, and writing it as a hobby before that since 1999. Since then she has become skilled with a variety DAWs and synthesis techniques while gaining an ear for layered sounds backed by strong beats and themes. When she’s not writing music she enjoys hiking, being a Linux
zealot enthusiast, playing video games, and watching anime.

Where is Partition 36 heading?
On October 20th, 2012, Alexa released her fourth full-length album, 63. Similar to the previous two releases, most of the music is a mixture of synthpop, industrial, and old demo scene music. However, 63 took the styles much further, developing the combination into something that Alexa could truly call the Partition 36 sound.
