Sound Garden — Kneubühler / Ethimm
This summer, the pavilion of the Fondation Beyeler park will once again resonate to the pulsating beats and melodies of our “Sound Garden.” Every Wednesday, visitors savoring the balmy evening air over a cool drink will get to enjoy the music of a line-up both regional and national, ranging from jazz and canzoni to disco and Hawaiian melodies. What better way to while away those precious mid-week hours than with the varied program of this year’s “Sound Garden” in the relaxed atmosphere of the museum’s park?
On this evening, two acts provide the entertainment. The singer and producer Lukas Amacher, aka “Ethimm,” has created his own refreshing brand of electro-pop by skillfully fusing modern production methods with the club sounds and styles of past decades. The result is an eccentric “pop-pourri” of New Wave, dub, disco and Balearic. Inspired by bands like Talking Heads and David Bowie, Ethimm takes his cues from the best that the late 70s and 80s had to offer and with pulsating bass lines and groovy percussion delivers a danceable sound that is ideal for long summer nights. David Moore, who as Kneubühler has been active on the Zurich music scene for many years, shares Ethimm’s humor, which is an important ingredient of both artists’ music. As the supporting act for Ethimm, Kneubühler will provide the acoustic prelude to the evening by filling our Sound Garden with his funny and poetic dialect tracks.
This event is free.
