“ragging edges, tearing deformation, sawtooth characteristics, cutting noise sounds – it’s all part of it. Vanoli knows how to knead this into a well-sounding melodiousness, which leaves you amazed and makes you wonder why you haven’t heard such beautiful music earlier in almost industrial sonorities” (

The PolyBand, led by Jasper Stadhouders since April 2015, is built around an ever expanding pool of musicians and performers.

The use of complex, multi-layered polyrhythmic cycles and polytonal environments creates a multifaceted and intricate picture that plays with the expectations, desires and memories of both the performers and audience. Relatively small, subtle changes in movement and sound are precisely timed to create great impact. Duration and repetition are two key elements.

The composition is set up in a way that it can be played by any number of performers. Each performer has a specific freedom within the composition. Various cues are assigned to all players which leads to unexpected shifts and changes.
The goal of this is to attempt a social music where each member is equal and which defies ego and individualism.

The PolyBand is set up in a symmetrical way, often all instruments are either doubled or tripled, to achieve an acoustic stereo sensation.

The PolyBand searches for a music which seems timeless and instantly recognizable while simultaneously expresses the urgency and uniqueness of the here and now.
