The path to success is often strewn with stones for composers and requires a lot of resilience. Numerous successful Swiss producers of electronic music have also had this experience.
In the course of the 2019 Electron Festival, the music festival for electronic music in Geneva, various music producers are going to talk about their careers at a public SUISA panel. During their discussions with those in charge of funding institutions as well as with experts from the music industry, they are going to screen specific support options and jointly analyse the current situation of electronic music in Switzerland. The main objective of the discussion panel is to inform composers on the existing support infrastructure and to follow up on the question whether the existing structures are sufficient.
The audience is cordially invited to contribute its own experiences to the discussion. Once the panel has ended, there is an informal drinks reception offering the audience the opportunity to continue the conversation with those in charge of funding institutions and the artists.
