The young up-and-coming pianist, composer and producer from Bern Luzius Schuler cites John Carroll Kirby, Floating Points and Bill Evans as some of his influences. Although these references should always be taken with a grain of salt, this can serve as a foretaste of some of the ideas Schuler is pursuing on his latest work. To do so, he spent 14 intense days in his studio taking a serious inventory of himself.

The distilled result can be heard on "Penta Festival", a testimony to Schuler's soul-searching and isolation, which he expresses on the piano and through various electronic elements. The listener is immersed in a world of distorted and pitched down Roland 606 beats, some impressive manipulations of the piano mingling with curved synth lines and multiple layers of sound and gradually develop into full-fledged pieces.

Melissa Weikart will perform as a support act. She is a French/American vocalist, pianist, composer, and improviser currently based in Strasbourg (FR). Her musical approach is shaped by her passion for experimental vocal harmony and formative training as a classical pianist. Melissa’s solo songwriting project is described as a playfully intimate dialogue between voice and piano, inviting the listener into a rich, raw world of twisted melodies and exposed dissonance.
