About this title


The internationally acclaimed team of architect Boa Baumann and musician/ cross-media artist Fritz Hauser has worked together for two decades exploring the tension and interaction between music and architecture. This monograph vividly recounts the story of their collaboration and the thrilling environmental installations that result. Active in the areas of improvised music, radio play, film music, theatre and sound installation, Hauser is a percussionist who is one of Switzerland's most diverse musicians. He and Baumann have created spaces and performed in New York, Melbourne and throughout the world. Author Hubertus Adam interviews Baumann, Hauser and others, and fashions a narrative text enhanced by large-format images by artists Andreas Fahrni, Christian Lichtenberg and Isabel Burgin.

About the Author:

Boa Baumann, born in 1953, studied architecture at the ETH Zurich. He founded his own firm in Bern in 1993 to realise new buildings and alterations in Switzerland and Italy. He is culturally involved on several fronts and was awarded the Dr. Jost Hartmann Prize for Monument Preservation in Bern. Fritz Hauser, born in 1953 in Basel, creates solo and ensemble programs for drums and other percussion instruments which are performed around the world. A part of his effort is devoted to inter-disciplinary work with architecture, light, film and choreography, among others. Hubertus Adam studied art history, archeology and philosophy in Heidelberg. From 1996 to 1998 he wrote articles for the magazine 'Bauwelt'. Adam's work as a free-lance architecture critic appears frequently in the 'Neue Zurcher Zeitung' and in other media. He works as a journalist for the magazine 'archithese' in Zurich since 1998. Since Fall 2009 he has been the artistic director of the Schweizer Architektur Museum S AM in Basel.
