About the event
She draws inspiration from her many years of practicing various acoustic instruments and her keen interest for other cultural forms of expression, which she translates into the digital language of electronic music and art. The soundscape of her own productions conveys a mystical, organic character and features driving complex rhythms. Polygonia’s sound palette ranges from energetic, groovy Deep Techno, Downtempo, Grey Area to textural and/or harmonic Ambient. Besides, she is not afraid to include influences from the genres House, Drum and Bass, Electro etc.. In addition motifs and scenarios from nature play a major role in many of her productions. Exemplary for her style are for instance her ‘Bloom’ EP (2022) on the American record label Sure Thing, the release ‘Deformed Human Nature’ (2021) on her own label IO, as well as the album ‘Abbilder einer vergessenen Welt’ (2021) on the Korean label Huinali. Her DJ and live sets too reflect her passion for different genres. Depending on the time of day and setting, Polygonia shows a different musical side. What unites all her dance music sets is the hypnotizing effect that invites to completely lose oneself in the world of sounds for a longer period of time. Several voices from the audience also confirm that the musician always tells a complex story within her mixes, allowing for very clear highs and lows. In the same set there can be very harmonic passages, which provide emotional moments and on the other hand extremely texture-heavy dark tracks, which establish a connection with the subconscious and put the listener in a kind of trance. Polygonia has already visited numerous of prestigious venues. She is now a regular at Tresor or Berghain in Berlin, Blitz or Rote Sonne in Munich to name a few. Together with the artists Dycide and MTRL, she established her collective and label IO in 2018. In 2021, Polygonia launched the collaborative band project Lyder with the musicians Niklas Bühler and Moritz Stahl, focusing on the fusion of jazz and electronic music. In July 2022, she founded her own label QEONE. In addition, she manages the premiere and podcast platform Hadal Resonance.
