Pony Says is a trio specializing in contemporary music and free improvisation. In addition to their main instruments (piano/keyboard, drums/e-drums, guitar/e-guitar), the members play ad-hoc instruments, control live electronics, and integrate light and video into their performance.


Works commissioned by Pony Says are always created in close collaboration with composers and relate to socio-cultural themes paired with the sound of both analog and digital worldliness. Pony Says mix dense electronic textures with sound clichés and rhythmic f(r)actures in their noise-heavy improvisations.


So far they have played premieres by Neo Hülcker, Philipp Krebs, Ui-Kyung Lee, Martin Schüttler, Julian Siffert and Yiran Zhao.
