Initiative Freie Musikszene Zürich

We are an association of freelance musicians from Zurich's contemporary music and sound art scene.  In November 2022 IFMZ got a space in the interim use Zeughaus 4 on the Kasernenareal in Zurich - a new place for rehearsals, studios, experiments, exchange and community. The over 500 sqm of space was divided into a large rehearsal room with control room and grand piano (283 sqm), a multi-purpose room for rehearsals, workshop, workshops (53 sqm), six individual studio rooms (27 - 30 sqm) and a storage room (30 sqm).
In addition to the main tenants and users of the rooms, rehearsal space is also available to IFMZ members at low cost. Rentals of the large rehearsal room to other persons and associations are possible on request.


In the interim use Zeughaus 4 we (Initiative Freie Musikszene Zürich, IFMZ) rent a studio/study space. As this is an interim use, the rooms still need some work and commitment. We are creating something together and are looking for sound artists, musicians or composers who want to get involved in the free experimental music scene and want to work on the interim use. The space is more suitable for individuals or smaller ensembles.Interested parties should contact contact@ifmz.chBesichtigung on 24/25/26 November or later. GeneralPrice: CHF 250 per month (incl. service charges for the first two years), size 30 sqm.

Start of lease: 1 December 2022, max. use until October 2026.
