Multi-faceted stage artist
Swiss music prize 2017
Born in Lausanne 1953, Pascal Auberson has explored multiple artistic forms in a career spanning more than 40 years. He started out in 1972 as a drummer in the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and from there progressed to jazz – for example as a pianist with Piano Seven – as well as chanson, theatre, dance, painting and film. Today, this stylistically accomplished multi-instrumentalist, composer and chansonnier moves easily through an artistic universe shaped by constant change and an eagerness for new encounters. His is a strong and unmistakeable voice that resonates far beyond French-speaking Switzerland.
