A few days ago saw on my Facebook feed a 20-meter high sculpture by hand crochet tent, created by the Brazilian artist Ernesto Net and placed inside Zurich’s main train station – little I knew about its actual purpose. As it turns out, music and architectural design mashed into one beautiful project meant to serve for a debut scene and a wonderful meeting point. For this project Nordstern Basel and Fondation Beyeler collaborated with the newly formed music band, Lost Souls of Saturn to create a special moment. Lost Souls of Saturn is a duo consisting of none other than producer Seth Troxler and Phil Moffa. The two of them are no stranger at working together, as Troxler had several collabs with the sound scientist Moffa, who is known for his ‘out of this world’ ambient works. As for Troxler, it kind of shook me into my chair. The DJ is publicly seen as being a sensual type of artist, so this comes as a big surprise. And to close this little note, the event happened on July 12th with a little over an hour long live debut. You can watch and listen to the whole set here.
Switzerland’s biggest indoor music event, Energy Star Night, opened its gate once again, at Hallenstadion, in Zurich, on Friday, November 17 to party it up, entertaining a good number of about 13.000 music lovers with international artists and country’s most beloved music groups and singers.
The night did not miss out on emotional moments, especially when the organizers brought from the street on stage to perform a talented street musician, named Jakula Ondra, from Poland. Newcomer of the year moment is also an emotional one, in particular for the winner, Swiss artist Nemo.
Good music made it from the stage to the crowd, coming from American singer artist Anastacia, UK artist Anne-Marrie who performed the well-known track Rockabye and the very talented Mark Forster, who’s come all the way from Germany to perform his energizing track ‘Chöre’. Switzerland’s darling Luca Hänni performed ‘Purple Rain’ in a duet with Jontsch. Swiss group Baba Shrimps, Finnish band Sunrise Avenue, French Dj duo Ofenbach, Alex Aiomo, Berlin-based Dj Alle Farben and Swiss duo Remedy & Manu-L performed as well.
The crowd received the very best ending, in a Swiss kind of way, with none other than Swiss rap duo Lo & Leduc performing on stage.
