The fascination of a live concert. There is hardly a better place than the Baloise Session to experience this up close, authentically and atmospherically. On stage, everything looks so natural, intuitive and spontaneous. But behind the perfect performance, behind every song and arrangement, there is a lot of know-how, technique and fine-tuning. In the new «Backline Blog» of the Baloise Session, we go on the trail of the secrets of pop and rock music. We discover exciting parallels, musical contrasts and affinities and, together with music professionals from various industries, explain why live music is so fascinating.
In the Baloise Session's new «Backline Blog» we go on the trail of the secrets of pop and rock music. In the process we discover interesting parallels, musical contrasts and commonalities and, together with music professionals from various genres, explain why live music is so fascinating. In the first blog post – brought to you by the Basler Kantonalbank – we compare two songs which come from two completely different music scenes and yet are very similar in musical terms. Both were huge hits by famous artists who will be appearing live at this year's Baloise Session: «Je Veux» by French singer Zaz and «Oh Jonny» by funk-master Jan Delay from Hamburg.
An exciting introduction to the attractive programme of this year's Baloise Session, which will feature Jan Delay live on Thursday 3 November together with singer Zoe Wees and Zaz on Saturday 5 November with Italian singer Elisa. We wish you much pleasure!
