Obiter dictum

«I cannot agree with the painters who claim superciliously that the layman can understand nothing of painting, and that he can best show his appreciation of their works by silence and a cheque-book. It is a grotesque misapprehension which sees in art no more than a craft comprehensible perfectly only to the craftsman: art is a manifestation of emotion, and emotion speaks a language that all may understand. But I will allow that the critic who has not a practical knowledge of technique is seldom able to say anything on the subject of real value [...].»

W. SOMERSET MAUGHAM, «The Moon and Sixpence», London, 1919
 

 
Q3
Envisions. Enacts. Entertains.

Q3 is the brand designating the artistic and promotional endeavors of Brian Quinn.
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. The clever synthesis of drum'n'bass and jazz music quickly introduces the original trio to audiences in Europe. 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 EE>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

At least half of what you care about music is what your ears bring to it. That's part of the reason why people like BLUE 2147: there's something in it for everybody. Someone told us it reminded them of Pink Floyd, while we thought we were playing chill beats under richly reverbed Herbie-esque lines. So just name it as you want. What you'll never guess, though, is that it's completely improvised on the spot.

> 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.
