Flattersound was a concert series hosted by ETET in the Flatterschafft in Basel, Switzerland. Flatterschafft began somewhere around 2012 and hosted perhaps the most adventurous program of artists, improvisers, local Swiss musicians, party events and a host of contemporary music events over the years. Unfortunately, the Projektraum, where these events took place, has closed its doors to such events, but the building remains full of creative artists and musicians.
The series presented the results of 4 collaborations with composers from Switzerland, Germany, and Austria whose music had played an integral role to the development of the quartet. The “off-space” atmosphere of the Projektraum provided nice conditions to realise many of the quartets aspirations. Each event featured and afterparty and free alcohol (for those of drinking age).
The programs consisted of works which were part of the quartets repertoire but each composer composed a new piece just for the occasion and provided their own contribution to the concerts.
