Marek Poliks (b.1989) composes chamber music at Harvard University, where he works towards a PhD. His music mines for expressivity in threadbare spaces, exhausted resources, and modes of interdiction. Marek’s mentors include Chaya Czernowin, Steven Takasugi, John Luther Adams, and Josh Levine. Recent projects involved the JACK Quartet, ELISION cellist Séverine Ballon, and Argento Ensemble. More information is available at www.marekpoliks.com.
