Dust of Soul

Dust of Soul are POSITIVE MUSIC POWER—the inter­na­tion­al­ly renown music duo com­bin­ing a dis­tinc­tive­ly strong, unique voice and an engag­ing, pow­er­ful piano. Sask­ia Stäu­ble, known pro­fes­sion­al­ly as Dusty, is a Swiss singer, song­writer, and com­pos­er. She is the first singer and moti­va­tion­al speak­er in one com­bin­ing both art forms to have a pos­i­tive impact on the audi­ence through music. This unique abil­i­ty and her ener­gized per­for­mances on stage led Dust of Soul to estab­lish the new music genre POSITIVE MUSIC POWER. Michael Oder­matt, known pro­fes­sion­al­ly as MiKey, is a Swiss pianist, com­pos­er, and record pro­duc­er. He is known for his pure­ly intu­itive cre­ative expres­sion on the piano and his capa­bil­i­ties to visu­al­ly and musi­cal­ly pro­duce the essence of Dust of Soul. This results in the two artists being insep­a­ra­ble and col­lec­tive­ly unique.

Dust of Soul are known for their image rein­ven­tions and musi­cal ver­sa­til­i­ty. They per­form orig­i­nal songs that are writ­ten and musi­cal­ly com­posed by both artists. The music is about nev­er giv­ing up on a dream and strength­en­ing our inner pos­i­tiv­i­ty. But the musi­cians con­vince not only with their song­writ­ing in the tra­di­tion­al sense, but also with their tal­ent to intu­itive­ly cre­ate songs live on stage with the ener­gy of the audi­ence. This cre­ates a nev­er before expe­ri­enced close­ness between artist and audi­ence and is called «Music Soul­ing». With their ini­tia­tive music read­ing capa­bil­i­ties they have had sig­nif­i­cant pos­i­tive impact on health and mind­set of numer­ous peo­ple across industries.

Dust of Soul appeared in more than 160 con­cert per­for­mances on three con­ti­nents—in India, Oman, Tunisia, Europe (Ger­many, Italy, France, Liecht­en­stein, Switzer­land), and Turkey.

Anoth­er high­ly suc­cess­ful fusion is their mix of Opera/Pop with Indi­an Rap and Beat­box­ing. The music video «Vic­to­ry» fea­tur­ing Hin­di Rap­per Mc Sid­du and The Dhar­avi Dream Project Mum­bai (a «Uni­ver­sal Music India» ini­tia­tive) filmed in the Dhar­avi (same loca­tion as Block­buster «Slum­dog Mil­lion­aire») gets more than half a mil­lion views.

The Berklee Col­lege of Music in Boston respond­ed to their per­for­mance with: «Out­stand­ing artis­tic fash­ion style. Excel­lent stage pres­ence. Extreme­ly descrip­tive. Very interactive.»
