Match&Fuse is a European collective consisting of musicians and promoters. I’m part of the team in Switzerland. After our first festival in Zürich in 2017 and some events in east Asia in 2018, we organised the second festival in Switzerland featuring six acts during a two days at the Moods club in Zürich. Leading up to the festival we had cooperations with Neubad in Lucerne and the Wednesday Jam of JazzBaragge in Zürich presenting some more music and spreading the word about Match&Fuse in Switzerland.
Some of my highlights were:
- Hilde Marie Holsen (Trumpet and electronics) from Norway
- Korean and Amsterdam based drummer and composer Sun-Mi Hong with her quintet featuring great trumpet player Alistair Payne
- District Five
- Gauthier Toux‘ new project “For A Word” with wonderful singer Lea Maria Fries
The last three of them just released new music or will do so soon.
