The Gamut Kollektiv (Gamut collective) has as its purpose to explore, to seek and to set new things in motion; it serves as a fruitful breeding ground for ideas, experiments and new processes.

In a similar way to musician-led initiatives in Berlin, Cologne, Vienna, Graz and Berne, the Gamut Kollektiv wants to open up suitable spaces in Zurich, to bring together musicians and artists with a diversity of stylistic or geographical origins, and to foster effective communication between them.

The collective consists of seven young musicians and a graphic designer from Zurich. They all express themselves freely in their own work and, when they cooperate, create a dynamic of lively cooperation. This pool is bound together by a common artistic vision.

In addition to the annual Gamut Festival, there is the Gamut Series. Each concert creates a new, individual platform for improvising musicians at different venues. The exchange and cooperation with different scenes is being promoted and conceptually integrated in new forms.
