Founded in 2013, Sinoidal Ensemble is a saxophone duo, José Miguel Cantero and Ana Lencina Sánchez,specializing in the performance of contemporary music. The program they will perform at Augustana explores the concept of sound, where the listener-spectator enjoys the essence and modulations of sound, as well as multimedia elements including video and film.

In addition to Sinoidal Ensemble, Cantero and Sánchez participate in several other ensembles, including Sigma Project and Ensemble Atmosphére. They have led masterclasses throughout Europe, including Vienna, Cologne, Frankfurt, Tallin, Avellino, Sevilla and Huelva.

Cantero was born in Hellin, Spain while Sánchez is a native of Jumilla, Spain. Both studied at the Conservatorio Superior de Música de Murcia in Spain and at the Conservatoire Jacques Thibaud in Bordeaux, France, with Marie-Bernardette Charrier.
