    Johannes Metzger Quartett

    Marc Doffey – Saxophon
    Morten Duun Aarup – Gitarre
    Fabian Timm – Bass
    Johannes Metzger – Schlagzeug/Komposition

    Die vier Jazzmusiker aus Berlin haben sich 2017 zu einem Ensemble zusammengefunden,
    dass die Möglichkeiten von Komposition und Improvisation im zeitgenössischen Jazz neu
    auslotet.
    „Ungeachtet etlicher solistischer Ausflüge, in denen die Interpreten ihre ausnahmslos
    bemerkenswerte Qualifikation unter Beweis stellten, bestimmte das gleichberechtigte
    Miteinander den Gang der Dinge “ – Schaumburger Zeitung
    Angestoßen durch die aktuellen gesellschaftlichen Debatten, beschäftigt sich das Johannes
    Metzger Quartett in seinem neuen Programm mit dem Begriff „Heimat“. Was ist Heimat
    überhaupt? Welche Rolle spielt „Heimat“ im musikalischen Kontext unserer Zeit, speziell
    im zeitgenössischen Jazz? Was kann ich als Jazzmusiker*in der Diskussion hinzufügen?
    Diesen Fragen stellt sich die Band bei jedem Konzert aufs Neue und nimmt das Publikum
    auf eine Reise mit, bei der es nicht nur die vier Musiker kennen lernt, sondern vielleicht
    auch ein kleines Stückchen neue Heimat.
    Einflüsse wie die Traditionen des Jazz, Folklore und auch europäische Klassik, die
    gegensätzlich wirken mögen, vereint das Ensemble zu einem Ganzen, in dem das Quartett
    eine musikalische Heimat gefunden hat, in der aber auch über die Musik hinaus keine
    Grenzen gesetzt sind.

    Constantly Moving Happiness Machines

    Constantly Moving Happiness Machines

    Jonathan Lindhorst – tenor sax
    Mark Pringle – piano
    ​Huw V. Williams – bass
    Max Santner – drums

    Constantly Moving Happiness Machines is an exciting new international collaboration featuring fresh and wonky grooves, long form compositions, and exploratory free improvisations. The musical relationship of German- Canadian saxophonist Jonathan Lindhorst, Welsh bassist Huw V. Williams, and Austrian drummer Max Santner dates back to their early meeting at the JIMS workshop in Salzburg back in 2008. Since then, the three have kept up a musical dialogue over the past decade, which has developed even further with the inclusion of British pianist Mark Pringle to form “Constantly Moving Happiness Machines”, an exploratory quartet searching for musical progress.

    Filipe Duarte – Room in the Middle

    Filipe Duarte – Guitar / Composition
    Julius Gawlik – Saxophone
    Simon Quinn – Double bass
    Mathias Ruppnig – Drums

    Room in the Middle is Filipe’s debut album as a leader.
    The compositions feature intense, through-composed, sections side by side with freer parts of collective improvisation.
    Filipe’s writing proposes new roles for each member of the quartet, with concepts like melody, solo and accompaniment often intentionally left undefined.
    The result is a very personal and sophisticated sonic experience that defies categorization and is sure to keep listeners on their toes.

    RUEß // NAVARRO // OTT

    Die Intmität des Trioformats bildet die Grundlage, auf der das Ensemble dem Zuhörer neuartge Klangwelten öffnet, die aus einem breiten musikalischen Spektrum schöpfen. Im so entstanden Raum steht die Intensität des Moments und Unmittelbarkeit der Kommunikation im Mittelpunkt. Auf Ihrer Tour stellen die jungen Musiker aus Paris, Hamburg und Berlin ihre ganz persönliche Sicht der Dinge vor.
    Unbekannt sind die Drei auf den europäischen Jazzbühnen jedoch schon lange nicht mehr. Nathan Otts Quartett mit Dave Liebman hat in den vergangen Jahren mit zwei Veröffentlichungen und etlichen Tourneen für großes Aufsehen gesorgt.
    Das Amaury Faye Trio von Louis Navarro ist vor allem in Frankreich sehr bekannt und Preisträger des Lübecker Jazzpreises Alexander Rueß ist u.a. mit seinem Projekt ‚Manko‘ einer der aufstrebenden Gitarristen der Jazzszene.

    Scopes

    Scopes is an European jazz ensemble rooted in Berlin and Paris.The group consists of four musicians who met in New York, where each spent several years and developed his own style in music.
    Four individual composers with sense for the pulse of time have joined to form a whole and create a distinct bandsound. While their music is deeply grounded in the jazz tradition, their songs serve as a platform to explore new realms through improvisation.
    Like a kaleidoscope, their music evolves in each concert and creates an unique experience for the listener. The acoustic quartet produces a transparent, modern sound that stands out from the classic line up of alto saxophone, piano, double bass and drums.

    Matt Chalk (US)
    Alto Saxophone:
    Alto saxophonist Matt Chalk grew up in a musical household in Kansas City but found artistic maturity in New York. He studied at The New School under Jaleel Shaw. Also a prolific composer in his own right, Chalk’s own music bridges a lyrical abstraction of contemporary classical music and jazz improvisation. His influences run as wide as painter Richard Diebenkorn to composer Henri Dutilleux, poet Lawrence Ferlinghetti to chef Alice Waters. Chalk currently lives in Paris where he composes, writes, and paints.

    Tony Tixier (FR)
    Piano:
    Tony Tixier has been a steady member of Logan Richardson’s Band for years and has also performed with Christian Scott’s group. The French pianist released his album “Dream Pursuit” with Logan Richardson, Burniss Earl Travis and Justin Brown in 2012. Since 2014, Tony has been living in New York, where he has established himself as part of the jazz scene and has performed with the jazz trombone legend Dick Griffin, as well as Seamus Blake and Kendrick Scott, among others.

    Tom Berkmann (DE)
    Bass:
    Tom Berkmann studied double bass at the Jazz Institut Berlin and then at Manhattan School of Music in New York as a DAAD scholar . He was a semifinalist in the International Double Bass Competition “Bass 2010”, received the German Academy Award for “Best Film Score” in 2013, and won the German Critics Award at the Berlin Film Festival for the Soundtrack of the Feature Movie “Oh Boy”.

    Mathias Ruppnig (AT)
    Drums:
    Austrian drummer and composer Mathias Ruppnig is an indemand musician in the Berlin jazz scene. With his own projects “The Spinning”, “Square Quartet” and “DACH” he tours Europe regularly. He completed both a Bach­elor and Master’s Degree at the University of Music and Performing Arts, in Graz, Austria. As a leader he released two albums “square” and “The Spinning” with the Viennese label, Session Work Records. In 2014, he won the “Downbeat Award” for College Graduate Outstanding Performance in the Latin group category with the KUG Composers’ Ensemble. Since 2018 a member of the Tobias Meinhart 4tet & Kurt Rosenwinkel (Sunnyside Records).

    The Doug Weiss Berlin Band

    The Doug Weiss Berlin Band

    For over 30 years I have made a career of elevating the performances of Artists such as Kevin Hays, Peter Bernstein, Mike Moreno, Lizz Wright, Brian Blade, Eddie Henderson, Clifford Jordan, and Al Foster.
    I have been a student not only of their music, but of the way in which they lead, and have sometimes thought that maybe I would do things a little differently. Now I am ready to take on this responsibility. I love music and want to share something special.
    It is for this reason that I have chosen the pianist Bela Meinberg. He has harmonic and melodic taste and sensitivity, and also takes the role of ‘member of the percussion section’ quite seriously. Jordan Dinsdale is a subtle and swinging drummer who has studied the lineage of rhythmic greats and comes prepared to contribute to the vibe every time. Ori Jacobsen brings beautiful sound, presence and storytelling to the table. I am so pleased to have met each of these remarkable young musicians and to be trusted with leadership of this group.
    We will play our interpretations of music that we all love, including a few of my own compositions. And in the words of my mentor Al Foster we will strive to bring the audience “Love, Peace, and Jazz.”

    Andres Marino & Lucia Boffo

    Andres Marino & Lucia Boffo duo was formed in early 2014. This project inhabits the songwriting format, however, it is allowed to take the song to less traveled places. They fuse elements of the harmonic conception of jazz, electronic music, poetry and narrative. In addition, adding voice as an instrument. In 2015 they recorded their first digital EP “Cíclico”, which was presented in the city of Buenos Aires, San Luis Tierra del Fuego and Córdoba. In 2017 they recorded and released their first record material in physical LP format, “Diente de León”. This album was released independently in Argentina, and also by the label Imparmaint Records, in JAPAN. In 2019 they made their first European tour, with presentations in Germany. Currently (2020) they are working on new music, exploring elements of electronic music in greater depth. They have shared the stage with: Mono Fontana, Martin Sued, Melina Moguilevsky, Florencia Otero, Tomas Fares, Ser Arrebol, Nadia Larcher, Nadia Szachniuk, Quique Sinesi, among others.

    ///////////////////////////// TWO-SONG TUESDAY ////////////////////////////////
    [sign up 19:00 // start 20:00]
    –> Beschreibung in Deutsch weiter unten

    Calling all songwriters!
    Calling all composers and instrumentalists and synth wizards!
    Calling all poets and writers and storytellers!

    Do you have new solo or duo material you’re itching to present?
    Join us for Donau115’s regular open stage series, Two-Song Tuesdays.

    Your set may include TWO SONGS or last TEN MINUTES.

    “How do I get booked?”
    Just show up // There is no pre-booking // Sign up opens at 19:00 (first come, first booked) // The first performer will begin at 20:00 // No soundcheck – so be ready. Slip on, blow minds, slip off.

    “What can I play?”
    This is entirely up to you. Out of respect for our neighbours:
    – you may NOT use loud percussion and loud bass-heavy signals into the PA.
    – you are welcome to use our backline, which includes:
    — piano
    — generic vocal microphones
    — a small terrible PA, accepting guitar/XLR cables (new one coming soon!)

    “But what about Covid-19”
    Yep, we know. 🙁 No more than 25 people may be in our stage area at any time. Those wishing to enter after that capacity has been reached can enjoy a drink or a taco in the back room or outside on our sidewalk seating until more spaces become available.

    “Anything else?”
    Donau115 is a very fun but weird musician’s musician kind of bar, come expecting oddballs.

    Structucture

    Asger Nissen / Alto Saxophone
    Victor Fox / Tenor Saxophone, Bass Clarinet
    Roger Kintopf / Bass
    Felix Ambach / Drums

    Structucture vereint vier Individuen, welche bei Ihrer ersten gemeinsamen Begegnung unmittelbar ihre übereinstimmenden Ideen einer musikalischen Spielhaltung entdeckten. In ihrer Musik geht es um Energie, um das Erschaffen eines kollektiven Ausdrucks von Kreativität. Das konzentrierte Zusammenspiel bewegt sich zwischen schnellen Impulsen und Ruhephasen, welche von allen vier Musikern gleichermaßen gesteuert und verarbeitet werden.
    In Roger Kintopf’s Kompositionen werden die Möglichkeiten des interaktiven Zusammenspiels innerhalb des Quartetts ohne Harmonieinstrument bis in die Tiefe ausgelotet. Die Kompositionen gründen auf starken Strukturen, Rhythmen und Harmonien, welche die beiden Saxophonisten Victor Fox und Asger Nissen auf vielfältigste Weise miteinander agieren lassen.Felix Ambach und Roger Kintopf sind nicht einfach Rhythmusgruppe. Als eine stark verzahnte Einheit entwickelt Structucture eine Spielhaltung, welche stets den Gesamtsound der Band und die Flexibilität jedes individuellen Musikers innerhalb eines sich einheitlich bewegenden Geflechts fokussiert.

    ENG:
    Structucture unites four individuals, who found their common idea of a musical attitude since the first day they met. Their music aims to create a collective expression of creativity with great energy. The atmosphere shifts between energetic impulses and phases of silence, which are controlled and processed by concentrated interaction of all four musicians.
    Roger Kintopf’s compositions fathom the possibilities of interaction within this quartet without a harmony instrument. The music is based on strong structures, rhythm and harmony, which let the saxophonists Victor Fox and Asger Nissen operate with versatility. Felix Ambach and Roger Kintopf are not merely a rhythm section. As a strongly interlocked unit, Structucture develops an attitude, which focuses the sound of the whole band as well as the flexibility of each individual musician within that constantly moving entity.
