ABOUT

Objective
riser organises performances and concert series throughout Switzerland for emerging artists and bands from the area of contemporary music. This promotion is aimed at enabling young Swiss music makers with great artistic potential access to a broader audience in order to pave the way for their national career and increase both their artistic development and their prominence.

Background
When young music talents want to take the next step of their career, they often face a harsh reality. They frequently find it difficult to find a stage on which they can perform and reach their audience. Moreover, they seldom achieve the media presence they need in order to make a name for themselves both in the music scene and in the public eye. The fees they receive for their performances are often not enough to cover their own expenses. Which is why many of them give up their promising career before it has really even begun. riser wants to do something about this by offering young emerging musicians and bands with great artistic potential the opportunity to get more appearances on stage so they can develop and carve out a career for themselves. In this way, the project contributes to the development of a diverse music scene.

Concert Series
riser.AMP | short for amplify. The more established artists and bands choose two young emerging artists and put on a show together with them. The idea is by no means for the rising artists to be in the shadow of the established artists, but instead to be part of a joint performance. Through the collaboration with these more established artists and bands, visibility for the rising artists is amplified.

riser.FAV | The FAV, short for favourites, chosen by the more established artists and bands perform alone. Shows are also organized in which multiple different rising artists perform together. This emphasizes the stylistic diversity and fosters an exchange amongst artists and with the concert promoters.

Who is behind riser?
Behind riser is a team consisting of established Swiss music makers and creative artists, concert promoters, as well as specialists in the areas of music production, booking, event management, and communication. All of whom give the emerging artists access to their network and their experience in the Swiss music industry while accompanying them on their path into the musical and media limelight. The project is funded through partners, grants, foundations and concert promoters throughout Switzerland.
