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

Do, 29. Oktober 
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.

Soon to debut as a recording artist, Bogdanović’s album in the making involves a subtle interlacement of classical vocal techniques and contemporary methods.
