Oscillate started with a simple idea: to overhaul existing booking structures in the nightlife business and to optimize them using an innovative technological framework.
As a small, handpicked and interdisciplinary team, we specialize in Start-Up Development, Crossmedial Strategies, Digital Media and Finance while focusing our efforts on the music and events industries. We love the rush of creating revolutionary products and making our client’s lives easier – products that simplify business down to its core necessities.
We’re currently up and running with two products; Optune and Onescreener. Both have been developed and adapted to the needs of the nightlife industry. Oscillate AG has already been able to secure a first seed funding round.
Optune is the innovative new booking platform for artists and bookers alike. It instantaneously makes the business of booking artists easier, more efficient and more enjoyable. Bookings are now handled online and end-to-end.
Optune is unique in the fact that both bookers and artists are equally represented on the platform. This opens up new channels of communication for all parties while simultaneously handling the obstructive administrative tasks involved in negotiating bookings.
The platform fundamentally simplifies the booking process: from instantly checking the availability of artists to negotiating contacts, intelligently suggesting new artists and handling secure transactions. This means every aspect of a deal will be facilitated using Optune.
Optune is currently testing a beta version in collaboration with various experts from the clubbing scene. At the same time, a prestigious Advisory Board containing a hand-picked group of individuals from within the industry meets regularly in order to discuss progress and decide upon further steps.
On June 16th 2016, Optune won the #uberPITCH Switzerland, in which several chosen Start-Ups also participated.

Onescreener is already operating successfully in the market as a simple website generator for Artists. Primarily intended for DJs, musicians and bands, but also suitable to many uses outside of the performing arts.
The idea driving the development of Onescreener was an urgent need for simplicity in promotional web design: many of the artist’s websites contained complicated navigational tools and layers upon layers of subpages. Also, most artists heads are stuck in the cloud, and don’t dedicate the time to update their website due to its complexity. These findings led to the concept of radical above-the-fold. Scrolling was skipped entirely.
This simple idea also ensures that onescreener looks nice on every device.
What stands out is the primary focus on artists and their unique needs: excellent Soundcloud/Youtube Integration (thanks to Embedly), with automatic updates of upcoming gigs via Gigatools, Bandsintown or Optune are offered.
No matter what your passion, onescreener is designed to provide a service that lets you present yourself online in the best possible way.
