Basil Böhni, lic. phil. Ⅰ

Owner and Managing Director

Basil Böhni graduated in March 2011 with a Major in Media Science from the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Zurich. During his career, Basil Böhni has worked for a range of organizations gaining extensive experience in communications, digital marketing, cultural administration, event management, and journalism.

During and right after his studies, he worked as a journalist for the Neue Luzerner Zeitung (today, the Luzerner Zeitung; the local newspaper of Lucerne) in the departments of culture and local affairs. His career then took him to the Alfred Escher Foundation in Zurich as a research assistant. From September 2013 to December 2016, he worked for various departments at Credit Suisse where he was responsible for communications and project coordination tasks. During this time, he also contributed to multiple publications. From January 2017 to June 2018, he was Digital Project Manager for BlueGlass Interactive in Zurich. In addition, since January 2017, he has been responsible for the online and offline communications for the City Light Concerts in Lucerne.

A special interest in “Film Music” and “Music and Media”

E.T.A. Hoffmann, a writer of romanticism, a lawyer, and a composer, put it aptly when he said: “Where language ends, the music begins.” Music touches us in all forms and expressions. It gives messages and images substantial emotional strength –– be it as a catchy promotional jingle or as an atmospheric film score.

Since his earliest youth, Basil Böhni has been passionate about classical and contemporary music and has been particularly impressed by film scores and their impact on the movie experience. After graduating in music education at his high school in Lucerne (Alpenquai) in June 2004, he began to work as a freelance journalist focusing on film and film music for various print and online magazines. Since 2014, he has been a member of the International Film Music Critics Association (IFMCA). In addition, he regularly writes the content for the concert program booklets for the film music concert series City Light Concerts, taking place in the renowned concert hall at KKL Lucerne.

Andreas Waser, MA

Editor, copywriter and design

Andreas Waser graduated from the University of Bern in 2009 with a degree in History and German Studies. By 2011 he had also obtained a teaching diploma in higher education (Sek. II) at the PH Bern. After more than ten years of teaching experience at secondary schools and as a lecturer at the Lucerne University of Education, he entered local journalism as a career changer. As a newspaper editor for the municipality of Hergiswil am See, he became familiar with both editorial and design tasks in the creation of magazines.

His experience in local journalism paved the way for publishing. Andreas Waser worked for five years as a co-project manager and editor for the largest private textbook publisher in Switzerland, Klett und Balmer Verlag.

Outside of work, Andreas Waser has gained experience as Head of Communications at the “Senkel” youth culture centre in Stans. As a historian, he has published various articles in anthologies on the history of the canton of Nidwalden. He particularly enjoyed translating plays into Swiss German for the Stans Theatre and the Dallenwil Theatre.

Special Interest «Literature», «Theatre» and «Photography»

Andreas Waser has always had a special fascination for history. Literature gave him access to past times and foreign cultures. In addition, you get to know, love and hate people – even if only fictitious ones – with their weaknesses, strengths and desires, in their striving, winning and failing. These emotions can be experienced particularly strongly in the auditorium in front of a stage. The right light, the right timing, the right tone of voice: all of this comes together to create an image that can get under your skin like hardly anything else in this world. And so Andreas Waser also found pleasure in capturing such images with his camera – without professional equipment and without ambitions, but with a lot of joy.
