    • MUSIK MIT GÄSTEN

   
Zurich based Mario Marchisella and João Orecchia performed three concerts over the course of three weeks at Zürich's historical home of the Dadaist movement, Cabaret Voltaire, each time inviting new collaborations with musicians from the far reaches of Zürich's unique musical landscape.

The evenings consisted mainly of improvisations framed by Mario and João as an anchor with Saadet Türköz, Luigi Archetti and Tim & Puma Mimi as guests. The idea of a 'concert series' allowed the audience to have a unique view of the development the musicians went trough as the band's members changed in that month of collaboration.
