Slought Foundation and Soundfield NFP are pleased to announce an evening of new and experimental music featuring Vienna/London-based ensemble Polwechsel on Tuesday, February 26th, 2008 from 8:00-9:30pm. Polwechsel features Werner Dafeldecker (double bass), Martin Brandlmayr (percussion), John Butcher (saxophones), Michael Moser (cello, electronics), and Burkhard Beins (percussion). They will be performing new compositions as well as selections from their recent HatArt CD release Archives of the North. This concert is part of the 2007-2008 Soundfield @ Slought series.

Over the past two decades Polwechsel output has thrived on a democratic process of specifically composing for the abilities and techniques of its cast with each member possessing a unique and developed voice in instrumental performance. During this period Polwechsel has produced divisive compositions, structured improvisation and electro-acoustic works which have all spoken intricately and explicitly on the organization of noise, the locus of technique, and the dynamism of the ensemble. — Dean M. Roberts (December 2005).

This program is made possible in part through the generous sponsorship or support of Sound Field NFP and grants from the Argosy Fund for Contemporary Music and the Philadelphia Music Project, a program of The Philadelphia Center for Arts and Heritage, funded by The Pew Charitable Trusts and administered by The University of the Arts, with support from Bowerbird
