New programm "NoDrums": Lisa Hasler: Voc, Synth, Loops, NoDrums. Florian Moebes: Guitars, Loops, NoDrums.
Soloperformance: “Mathilda und das No-chestra” is in town, and up to some new trick again. The “No-Chestra” accompanies Mathilda through mysterious and wounderous lands and may, at times, be a very tame creature.
During the cold winter days of 2012, “Mathilda and the no-chestra” withdrew from everyday life into her little, cozy studio. She didn’t retire for a winter sleep, but created a colorful and stunning solo-program composed of various songs. The carefully arranged songs from nearby and faraway are being accompanied by the “No-Chestra”, consisting of an analog synthesizer, a loopsataion and various other musical toys and devises. The peculiar sounds of the synthesizer underline the originality of the songs and occasionally seem to make them appear out of nowhere. But Mathilda stays well on the ground: Also old traditional songs find their place in the program. In her A-cappella performances she shows great affection for the sound colors of her voice and manages to reach her audience with plain and pure moving songs.
We are proud to announce our new program "NoDrums": Rhinozeros will focus on its songwriting-skills, and with all kinds of digital and analogue rhythm-making-divecies the duo expands to a fairly peculiar band. The two musicians merge curious soundscapes with traditional songwriting.
Suiss Radio (SRF Kultur): The music created by two “Rhinozeroses” is very reduced, nearly bare in some of their songs. We long to cover it up, but the sparingness and nudity of the music is so moving that we hesitate. As soon as we engage with their fragile tone, the duo wipes away the sparingness and suddenly appears as a little orchestra.
Efrat Alony: "As rich as an orchestra, and at times as fragile as a naked soul.- the sound of the promising Duo Rhinozeros, Lisa Hasler (voc) and Florian Möbes (git) manages to capture the entire range.. On the wonderful debut CD "Time to spoil", the Duo portrays a unique point of view, with great clarity and depth..with lovely original compositions such as "too small", as well as strong and moving new interpretations for the american song book such as "My man's gone now" , they state, that they are here to stay!"

Singers are their own instrument as well as ist player.
From 2009-2013 I worked at Vokal-Lokal as a singing teacher. I also had lessons in music theory and ear training. Furthermore I was in charge of an A-Cappella-Ensemble with 5-7 advanced hobby singers.
Since 2013 I work at Newpark Music Centre in Dublin, but I still offer vocal courses at Vokal-Lokal in Berne. For Detail please visit the Vokal-Lokal webpage.
I worked with „Die Ausbildung der Solostimme“ by Heinrich von Bergen as well as „Complete Vocal Technique“ by Cathrin Sadoline. I visited lectures on „functional and organic vocal dysfunction“ as wll as „vocal physiology and acoustics“ with Dr. Prof. Seifert and Dr. Christian Herbst.

I am incredibly happy to be a part of this wonderful band. The four musicians create a band sound that manages to surprise and inspire me over and over again.
New ideas and possibilities arise through the playful use of improvisation as well as through the freedom of improvisation. I very easily get carried away, by the amazing groove and refreshing energy of this group. Thanks!

Out of five individual voices the singers of “Voice Department” create an instrument that lives from the very harmony of its sound. The ensemble doesn’t hesitate to work with dissonant and unusual sounds, but also familiar songs find a place in their repertoire. Inspired by jazzy harmonies they always find a way to make well-known music sound brand new.
We play at your wedding, your birthday or at the party with your friends. We play outdoors, in the church, in the partyroom or at the campfire
Lisa and Peter spontaneously joined to play at a birthday party in 2010. Sharing some of their favorite songs, they created a broad repertoire out of oldies, singer-songwriter, chansons and evergreens. After a great number of weddings, birthday parties and baptisms they expanded their repertoire with various songs in all different styles. The two musicians touch their audience with a great variety of songs and they move effortless between different instruments in order to give any song the right sound color.
Looking at the smallest fragment in order to make big steps.
If I got the assignment to write something about Lisa’s music as well as a little about her personality and her musical background, I wouldn’t know where to start. I maybe would try to describe the dreamful and sensuous sizzling noise, or more: the glint, exuded by her voice and her music. We can easily loose ourselves in its sounds, melodies and harmonies. Her songs about missed chances, about love, about inner landscapes, sound so very familiar to us. But I could also just list what Lisa asked me to list:
Furthermore I could drop a line about the intensity of Lisa’s work on her original compositions and her voice, but also on covering all sorts of songs. How she gives old traditional music new lightness and how she writes her own songs that are at times funny, or contemplative, or sad, or wild or freakish or… or…. Or… I had so much to tell if she’d only ask me to.
