///// TWO-SONG TUESDAY /////
[sign up 19:00 // start 20:00]
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 to present? Join us for Donau115’s regular open stage series, Two-Song Tuesday.
Your set may include TWO SONGS or last TEN MINUTES, WHICHEVER IS SHORTER (e.g. two seven-minute songs = NO, three two-minute songs = NO).
“How do I get booked?”
– The bar staff tell you how to sign up, starting at 7pm.
– The first performer will begin at 20:00
– NO SOUNDCHECKS. Be ready. Slip on, blow minds, slip off. Setup is 90 seconds. Sets are no longer than 10 minutes. THERE IS A STOPWATCH TO ENSURE THIS. If your set goes beyond 10 minutes, the stopwatch goes off in the middle of your song. (The alarm sound is in the key of C#, FYI.)
– The host will call you to the stage in a random order. You may not reserve a specific time slot.
– We let as many people play as possible. There is usually time for 12 performers. Some weeks more, some weeks less.
“What can I play?”
– This is entirely up to you, but DO NOT PLAY THE SAME SONG OVER AND OVER EVERY WEEK. THIS IS BORING. TRY NEW THINGS.
– 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 a piano, two generic vocal microphones, a guitar cable directly into our PA, and a small amplifier.
— DON’T COUNT ON US HAVING ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE FEW THINGS LISTED ABOVE. COME PREPARED.

Lisa Hoppe’s YSOP
Gaya Feldheim Schorr – vocals, effects (France/Israel)
Laura Schuler – violin, effects (Switzerland)
Julia Rüffert – trombone (Switzerland/Germany)
Danielle Friedman – piano (Germany/Israel)
Lisa Hoppe – upright bass, composition (Germany)
German-Israeli-Swiss band YSOP savors improvisation and performance.
The unusual line-up consists of vocals, violin, trombone, piano and upright bass, and creates a particular form of chamber music in which acoustic instruments blend together with electronic effects.
In their current program Songs About Healing, the quintet presents compositions that explore the topic of how to cope – with loss, emotional injuries, and crises. In partly concrete, partly abstract, sometimes absurd episodes the arrangements provoke pleasing discomfort, as well as they open up spaces for meditative listening and contemplation. The musicians draw inspiration from their shared as well as from their different languages, histories, and cultural backgrounds.
In March 2022, YSOP received the BeJazz TransNational Award and impressed the jury “”with depth, charm und great skill”.

LIFT OFF is a new project formed by Brooklyn/Köln based saxophonist and composer Loren Stillman.
Featuring the talents of Asger Nissen (alto saxophone), Simon Jermyn (bass) and Sebastian Merk (drums),the group’s compositions explore a collective landscape of musical forms and structures.
Stillman’s tenure with drummer Paul Motian and bassist Charlie Haden informs the boundless musical possibilities from which this group can LIFT OFF.
Join us at Donau115 for an evening of exploration.
