Polwechsel work with a stringently refined vocabulary of techniques in sound production and sonic choreography. Their works often patiently study and extract beauty from the bare elemental juxtaposition of techniques. They explore strategies where form and function are radically and frequently challenged – the start-point is an expanded musical discipline which deals with the mechanics of beauty in her many perspective distortions and variations. It renders poetry through process, is littered with perfect imitations of failure and aleatory justifications that occur with stunning clarity of gesture and purpose.
