Music Apartment | Live Stream Showcases

After 20 wonderful showcases, Music Apartment closed its doors at the end of 2016.

Our thanks go to Gina Schmidheiny and Sound Development for making this possible, to the crew and everyone involved for their great work, to our streaming partners for their support and of course to all the the musicians and bands which visited us over the years.


Music Apartment was a showcase series which brought together musicians and audiences in an intimate and atmospheric ambience. Key to this project were the artists, their music and performance – correspondingly, the setting was simple, often acoustical and reduced to essentials.

Music Apartment presented artists which stand out due to their originality, authenticity and expressive power, personalities which pursuit their artistic vision consistently and passionately – be it insider tips, shooting stars, everlasting critic’s favorites or forgotten musical gems.

The experience of these exclusive performances wasn’t limited to the audience on the spot. Via web stream, fans and music lovers could log in at any given moment and witness the gigs live and instantaneously.

The project’s primary focus was to support the involved artists, not only by broadcasting their performances live, but also via the project website as well as several video platforms where the archived showcases invite to dwell on, to browse and to discover exciting music.

Music Apartment was a non-commercial project, produced and financed by Sound Development. The first five showcases have been realized in collaboration with the Swiss independent label Nation Music.
