Two-Song Tuesday // OPEN MIC //

///////////////////////////// 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.


Mi, 23. September 

Laura Schuler – violin
Elias Stemeseder – piano
Nick Dunston – double bass

NICK DUNSTON is a composer, improviser, instrumentalist, and “indispensable player on the New York avant-garde” (New York Times). In 2019 he was awarded the Van Lier Fellowship by Roulette Intermedium, which supported the world premieres of The Floor is Lava! (upright bass quintet), and La Operación (double saxophone trio with soprano voice). Also in 2019 he released his debut album Atlantic Extraction for double bass, drums, electric guitar, flute, and violin. From 2016-2019, he was a monthly contributor to Hot House Jazz Magazine. (vimeo.com/342125717)

LAURA SCHULER explores the violin’s diverse sound capacities while simultaneously weaving in her voice. She takes inspiration from nature, the I-Ching, and her wide musical background. What emerges are sounds and songs reverberating around a complex tension that defy any simple categorization. Laura works currently on her solo project under the name “Kate Birch”, leads her quartet and is part of the trio Esche. (www.lauraschuler.net)

ELIAS STEMESEDER performs on the acoustic piano and synthesizers in a variety of musical idioms ranging from the song-oriented music of Jim Black’s trio to contemporary classical pieces by John Zorn to the electric music of Eyebone. Current projects include collaborations with John Zorn (John Zorn’s Bagatelles), Greg Cohen Quintet, Philipp Gropper’s PHILM, Jim Black’s Malamute, Anna Webber’s Percussive Mechanics, Robert Landfermann Quintet, and OTIS+WEDDING.

Fr, 25. September

“Invocation is a spiritual call echoing different times and places of life”.
A calm and meditative dance, Invocation weaves musical material together – where written and improvised music intermingle with inspiration that is sometimes expressionist, folkloric or contemporary but always calling for reverie.
