From Pony Says trio website:

Pony Says negotiates questions on diverse fields such as socio-cultural issues, electronic music, pop culture, conceptualism and practices, new discipline...
from the ECLAT festival website:

Inspired by the pop music concept of ‘featuring’,
Pony Says and Ictus unleash a whole new energy as they work together.
In constellations of soloists against groups,
the attempt to outbid each other to the point of sonically devouring the others,
composers and ensembles make the critical discourse
on hierarchies and power structures come alive on an artistic level.
