Obiter dictum

«In all action a man seeks to realize himself, and the act once complete, it is no longer a part of him, it escapes from his control and has an independent objective existence. It is the fruit of his marriage to a moment, but it is not the divine moment itself, nor even the meaning which the moment held for him, for that too has flown feather-footed down the wind. Bourne had a positive hatred of the excuse "that it does not matter" being given as a reason for any action: if something does not matter, why do it? It does matter. It matters enormously, but not necessarily to others, and the reasons why it matters to you are probably inexplicable even to yourself.»

FREDERIC MANNING, «The Middle Parts of Fortune/Her Privates We», London, 1929

Based in Southern Switzerland, Q3 offers a portfolio of musical artists and concert productions.

Founded in 2004 by the three musician brothers Nolan, Simon and Brian Quinn, the original trio Q3 expands to a musicians' collective in 2008.

It repeatedly publishes record and video productions and is awarded various international prizes dedicated to jazz music. Q3 is commissioned original soundtracks to historic films «Nanook of the North» (Robert Flaherty, 1922) and mountain film masterpieces of the 1920s and 30s. Artists Kurt Rosenwinkel, Bill Carrothers, Olivier Ker Ourio, Tino Tracanna and Max De Aloe cooperate with Q3. Pianist Gabriele Pezzoli has been contributing to the collective since 2008. Q3 produces the festivals «Sonvico in Jazz», «Suono di una notte di mezza estate», «Jazz nelle nostre piazze», TLL>LUG/LUG>TLL and ES>TI.

BRaun

How Analog Can Digital Go?

BRaun play on instruments what you'd expect to be programmed. Imagine many facets of current djing falling into one live set–then unhinge this from the grid of programme and machine. Give it back the randomness of living beings, give it a human face. You get BRaun, recklessly making it all up as they go along, every night anew.

Blue 2147

Had the layered rhythms of today's electronic music already been known to Pink Floyd; were the uncompromising pure improvisation of deepest psychedelia familiar to our deejays - then BLUE 2147 would have come about 45 years earlier. Or just now; it is never too late, or too early.

> Colossus of Rhodes - our new album! Available on CD, custom USB drive, digital download.

> Six O'Clock · Gli aperitivi in Fabbrica - our steady gig featuring a new guest every first Thursday of the month. Brighten your happy hour with a choice from over fifty brands of beer! Only at Osteria La Fabbrica, Via Locarno 43, Losone.

Bergfilm

Q3 perform their own specifically composed soundtrack to a live screening of excerpts from silent mountain film masterpieces of the 1920s and 30s. Q3 have undertaken a six-handed composition of a both motivic and impressionist soundtrack featuring their landmark grooves, humour and inclination towards form and structure, turning it into a further quintessential Q3 musical experience.
