In August 2021 Power and Sean Derrick Cooper Marquardt founded (Afghanistan Mon Amour) a avant-garde experimental music duo of visionary magnitude.
For some time Power has been working on a CutUp Loops series. Brion Gysin discovered the cutting technique by chance in 1959 and pointed it out to William S. Burroughs, who was to become the most important exponent of CutUp. Power transfers the system from the word to the sound. For this purpose, loops are layered according to the cut-up technique, their speed changed and rearranged. Torn out of their context and edited beyond recognition, they yield themselves again and overhaul to a different whole that follows its own story. Power creates spherical tones on her self-made theremin.
