For Rock And Roll

Tracks

  1. For Rock And Roll

The Video

Liters of sweat and months of hard work went into our first single. Dozens of people have been involved and supported us to create something truly unique. Countless appointments had to be organized, the band members Toni, Julian, Merlin and Timon have been tested by this project multiple times. But all this has payed off.

We proudly present our craft: FOR ROCK AND ROLL!

The creation

When we started searching for a suitable location, we stumbled across the TaB in Reinach, Switzerland. It offers a reasonably sized room with good acoustic – the ideal spot for recording.

So the TaB actually is a theater. Therefore it features a stage, a bar, sound systems and so on. Nearly everything required for a concert.

“Why don’t we organise a concert then?”. Merlins spark of a thought immediately lit the fuse and cause a massive wildfire in the minds of the other band members. ”And we could also record a video simultaneously!”.

This decision marks a milestone in the bands young history. The concert at the TaB would be the first event, organised by the band itself.

And it required a lot of organisation from the bands part: sound- and light engineers, camera crew and barkeepers, a 6 meter wide backdrop with our logo printed on, ear plugs, snacks, a range of carefully selected drinks and more.

But we coped with this absolutely new situation and on the 27th of July 2019—one day before the big recording and the great concert—we were ready.

Turn on the bright lights: Light, sound and instruments are ready.

We’d like to give special thanks to Toni Watzinger, Miro Haller and Teddy Eichenberger, as they had a deep impact on the outcome of this project. Without Toni there wouldn’t be any sound, without Miro there wouldn’t be a video and without Teddy there wouldn’t even be a band named Voltage Arc.

Furthermore we’d like to thank the TaB Reinach for providing the facilities and supporting us young, local musicians. The whole team did an amazing job. This includes the smooth coordination and communication with Clo Bisaz, the efficient and precise handling of all administrative works by Marianne Gautschi as well as the flawless and helpful support by Beno Vogler.

Countdown to the single release and a neat preview of upcoming shows.
