Steamboat Switzerland are Dominik Blum (organ), Marino Pliakas (bass) and Lucas Niggli (drums) who define themselves as a “Hammond Avantcore trio”. Their music, a crossroad between new music and improvised jazz with influences from hardcore, drum’n’bass and noise, among others cannot be put in a box. Steamboat Switzerland tour worldwide and have played at numerous festivals including Donaueschinger Musiktage, Moers Festival and Patti Smith’s London Meltdown Festival. Contemporary German artist Albert Oehlen commissioned music by Steamboat Switzerland to accompany his solo exhibition Tramonto Spaventoso at the Gagosian Gallery in Los Angeles, 2021.
