Céline Rudolph’s SONIQS

Céline Rudolph (voc, perc, electronics) & Sebastian Merk (dr, keys, electronics)
feat. Regis Molina (flute, alto, perc) Povel Widestrand (piano)

“I love the adrenaline, the here and now, the surprise and the power which the stage grants me.” –
Vocalist and composer Céline Rudolph glides between Berlin, São Paulo, Paris and New York, between tongues and genres, always landing in the very heart of music.
Now new music is on the way. She has been working a lot with multi-instrumentalist Sebastian Merk this summer. And now they are really excited to share the spirit live with Cuban alto/flute player Regis Molina and Swedish pianist Povel Widestrand, all based in Berlin! Most of the music is built upon vocal songlines that they loop. „Songlines“ ? That’s how Céline calls melodies repeated in a circle. Each songline belongs to only one song. Sebastian samples Céline’s looped melodies and re:constructs them with electronic sounds and filters. On top of these songlines, she composed instrumental melodies and poems.
Sebastian Merk specially created a unique set for SONIQS, combining electronics, keyboards and drums which he manages to play simultaneously, giving him the freedom to communicate with the music intuitively. Céline particularly enjoys the cooperation with these incredibly inspiring musicians because she feels that it truly allows her to connect the ease and natural flow of rhythm and sound sculptures, and her own songs and compositions. Above all, this band pulsates with the rather effortless vocal and improvisational artistry of Céline Rudolph, which includes exciting rhythmic inspirations, highly sophisticated melodic improvisations and fascinating sound poetry.
★★★★★ „…Was für eine fantastische Sängerin und Songschreiberin Rudolph ist… Es mag an Rudolphs breitem kulturellen Hintergrund liegen, der die französische Chanson-Tradition eines Serge Gainsbourg ebenso umfasst wie Afrikanisches, Brasilianisches oder Surreal-Abseitiges. Es kann aber auch sein, dass hier über die Jahre eine funkelnde Perle entstanden ist, die nun weit über den europäischen Jazz hinausstrahlt.“ Josef Engels RONDO, 20 juli 2019
„One of the jazz vocals records of the year without a shadow of a doubt and the main reason for this beyond her fine voice is the quality of the compositional arc and great sweep of style at play throughout.“ Stephen Graham MARLBANK.NET (UK), 3 dec 2019 about PEARLS

Reinier Baas – guit

Matthias Pichler – b
Peter Gall – dr

Über die Jahre hat sich Peter Gall als Drummer und Komponist in zahlreichen Bands profiliert und ist an über 30 Alben beteiligt. Seine Vielseitigkeit konnte er auf der Bühne mit Koryphäen wie Gitarren-Ikone Kurt Rosenwinkel oder Star-Bassbariton Thomas Quasthoff bis hin zum Rapper Max Herre, der NDR Big Band oder Take 6 unter Beweis stellen.
2018 erschien das Album „Paradox Dreambox“ sein von der Kritik hochgelobtes Debut als Bandleader.
Mit dem aus aus Spitzenmusikern der europäischen Szene bestehenden „Peter Gall Quintet“ gewann er erst kürzlich den 1. Preis beim prestigeträchtigen internationelen BMW Welt Jazz Award 2020.
Nun präsentiert das Peter Gall Quintet ein neues Programm, das an diesem Abend im Donau115 seine Premiere hat.
Gefördert von Musikfonds / Neustart Kultur.
Presse über das Album „Paradox Dreambox“:
„German percussionist Peter Gall’s debut is, quite simply, amazing. At times it sounds like a traditional jazz while at others it’s more of a cosmic, psychedelic exploration. (…) Is this album weird? Indeed. But it is a gorgeous listen easy to love? You bet.“
Treblezine, 10 best Jazzalbums 2018
„Cinematic ambience, electronic washes, and indie-rock flourishes actively coalesce with the contemplative chamber jazz reveries and edgy post-bop eruptions. But what all this talk of genres boils down to is that Paradox Dreambox is music for an imaginary film: catchy melodic hooks that hint at monumental scenes, rhythmic chatter that doubles for dialogue, and diverse expressionism, as if replicating a large cast of personalities.“

Plague Fun: Corona Rules

Case numbers are low, but the bug’s still around so we will be taking many measures to make sure we’re all doing our part to end the pandemic once and for all.

2G – According to the latest Corona restrictions you have to be VACCINATED or RECOVERED and you have to wear a MASK to enter Donau115. You can take your mask off at your seat. Our staff is tested each night. We encourage you to additionally and voluntarily get tested (you will not be asked for a negative test result though).”

1: OUTSIDE: contact tracing – To join us outside, you must provide contact tracing information. We will keep this information safe for the required amount of time and destroy it with fire once that time has elapsed.

2: INSIDE: vaccinated or recovered – To join us inside, you must provide contact tracing information as above. Additionally, you must provide proof of full vaccination or recovery without exception. You cannot get in with just a test (neither “Schnelltest” nor PCR-Test). You have to wear a mask when entering but can take it off once you sit down. 

3: BE PATIENT AND FLEXIBLE- These rules are subject to change. We follow the directions of the Berlin Senate and when they provide new guidelines we will follow those. Always check the FB event or the website prior to coming to the concert to make sure you’re prepared for any government limitations that may have been imposed since last time you checked.
