Cruel Bones ÷ Noisefest



We are proud to welcome local and international artists to an extraordinary evening down in the cave.

Svartvit (NL)

Hailing from the Netherlands, Kevin Jansen has been crafting intense harsh noise for over ten years now. Not his first time in Zurich, as he already played early Umbo a few years ago at an edition of atonal_zurich, now defunct event series organized by Dave Phillips.

Dave Phillips (CH)

One of the early pioneers in the wide field of noise music from Switzerland. Part of the international known “Schimpfluch Gruppe” and now living in Berlin, it’s a pleasure for us to welcome him back in the city he helped shape with his music and consistent events of experimental culture.

Noijzu (CH)

Representing the capital city of this country, the still young project of Luis Sanz and Urs Heer has already played a variety of experimental places and events, including the December series of Everest Records. Always re-inventing their live sets from show to show, they are able to surprise with every performance.


Surmounting the infamous “Röstigraben”, we’ll have the French part of Switzerland represented by Andrea Nucamendi. She has been active for a few years now and just toured China and Japan with her blend of harsh noise and industrial.

Mulo Muto (CH)

Joel Gilardini and Attila Folklor in their collaborative effort of combining harsh soundscapes with – at times – really soothing drone/ambient passages. Both active in countless other projects (most known for INSOMNIA ISTERICA /// L’è Tütt Folklor Records DIY) and therefore well trained in sound experiments.


Uhuruku and Nitrate Es each contribute their talents to the evening by adding experimental soundscapes and bypass the shows on stage.


This thing here celebrates four years of existence now.
We just keep on with doing things we like, so here is some upcoming stuff:

The limited edition of the new Zwischenwelt release is finished and ready for purchasing. Handmade o-card on thick paper, coming with an inlay that gathers thoughts and positions on the subject of the record. 20 copies in white paper, 20 copies in red paper.


We have a few shows ready for the next few months. Besides our events at the most famous cave in Zurich – UMBO – there will be some new stuff going on in Winterthur as well. Keep your eyes open for that. We are definitely psyched for our upcoming Noisefest in February. Be there.

Cruel Bones



A Split EP between Leeds-based noise/post-punk artist Feral and Zurich-based Drone Pop artist Debutante, containing three noisy tracks about gender dysphoria. Blending glitch, slowcore and post-punk elements with moaned and damaged vocals,
the EP goes from feelings of uncertain melancholy to raw anger and back and has been compared to Coil, Giles Corey or Ben Frost.
“It will turn a healthy person into one with black bagged eyes and a pale unhealthy skin;
perfect for if that is the look and feel that you wanted to go for!” – Yeah I Know it Sucks


Soldat Hans – Es taut

‘A feeling of aimless floating above existence, watching as the Earth seemingly explodes below. I can feel the essence of destruction, but am lost in the vibrant colors and effluence of glorious energy. I am consciously separate, stuck in a cocoon of warmth and safety.’ – Invisible Oranges


Letterpressing on thick black paper (done at Druckerei Nicolussi),
handnumbered, printed transparent cassettes

Songs and lyrics by Soldat Hans
Recorded, produced and mixed by Philip Harrison
for Chucky! Music Productions at Bau2 Studios in Winterthur
