“If our post-industrial dystopia needs a soundtrack, Ponytrap can help…

overlaying dark cello and viola against waves of thundering percussion,

the result is a uniquely futuristic classical score of dark rhythms and haunting mechanics”

– The Austin Chronicle

Ponytrap performs industrial music, on classical instruments, with robotic percussion.

We are a band, an educational presentation, and an unforgettable interactive maker installation all rolled into one.

Powerful, portable, extraordinary.

“Ponytrap treats audiences to chamber music for the age of electricity,

at once intimate and thundering,

rigid and fluid,

classical and industrial.”
