Hannes Liechti lives in Berne as a musicologist and journalist. He works part-time as a regional coordinator for the protestant mission Mission 21. Aside he is heading the Theaterensemble Johannes. With this ensemble he is producing their own pieces in swiss german every second year with a wide framework programme.

After his school leaving examination and his civil service in a shared flat for handicapped people he studied musicology and history at the University of Berne and the Ludwig-Maximilians University Munich. He finished his studies in 2012 with a thesis about the worldmusic scene in Berne (title: «Eine Stadt voller Menschen, Kulturen und Klänge: Musik der Welt in Bern»). In this thesis – under the supervision of Prof. Dr. Britta Sweers (University of Berne) – he was looking for different musical styles from all over the world, which are played in Berne and he tried to reach a new definition of the controversial term «world music».

Since 2008 Hanns Liechti is working as a freelance journalist. He has written articles (among others) for the Magazine for culture Ensuite, the Swiss Music Revue SMZ, the Bernese daily journal «Der Bund» and the magazine for religion and society, Aufbruch. He is taking part of the editors board of the Aufbruch. He did some internships in Switzerland (journal «reformiert.») and Germany (Donaukurier Ingolstadt) and he is running the Fretless Blog, which is sort of an archive for his articles and publications.

Beside that he is doing several musical projects. He plays classical guitar and is part of the choir Vokalensemble Belcanto, which is having concerts twice a year.
