Igor Osypov Quartet at Donau115

Igor Osypov – guitar (UA)
Povel Widerstrand – keys (SWE)
Josh Ginsburg – bass (US)
Fabian Rösch – drums (DE)

Osypov is a guitarist with a fresh, complete concept. Sometimes his glistening notes fall like intermittent raindrops. The priority in Osypov’s band is the edgy treble-dominant group blend, but the melodies triggered vivid solos that never entirely separated themselves from the ensemble
– Thomas Conrad at All About Jazz

Igor Osypov was born in Ukraine in 1988. He started playing guitar at the age of 10 and as a child was really into rock music, but at some point turned his way to jazz, and this passion still leads in his musical world. He was active on both Ukrainian and Russian jazz scenes, taking part in major jazz events there and making concert tours through Ukraine and Russia.
Igor’s original compositions not only draw inspiration from the Jazz idiom, but other genres such as Classical and Rock.Igor moved to Germany in 2012, to dive into Berlin vibrant jazz scene. He has attended prestigious Jazz Institute Berlin where he was studying with a renowned jazz guitarist Kurt Rosenwinkel. Among his other teachers were John Hollenbeck, Greg Cohen, Kalle Kalima, Gerard Presencer, Geoffroy De Masure, Tino Derado, Guilherme Castro and Javier Reyes. During his studying Igor has also been awarded with Deutschlandstipendium and JIB-Jazz-Preis der Karl Hofer Gesellschaft 2015 (Bondarev/Osypov Quintet). Igor’s been playing concerts and taking part at festivals all over Europe both with his own band and as a sideman. He is not limited within the genres, but plays mostly jazz – although, all kinds of it.
Both his tunes and his playing tend to be really emotional and complex. The influences of highly raged musical interests made Igor’s music intellectually developed but still clear for all kinds of audience.
Shortly after arriving in Berlin, Igor founded his Quintet, featuring some of his favorite musicians from all over Europe and the USA. Since it’s inception, the Quintet has performed at festivals all around Europe. Has worked with Kurt Rosenwinkel, Logan Richardson’s SHIFT and Blues People, Nasheet Waits, Wanja Slavin, Greg Cohen and many others. In the summer of 2014, Igor Osypov recorded his debut CD with American saxophonist Logan Richardson, which came out in the spring of 2015 on Unit Records.
In spring of 2016 the second album entitled “Dream Delivery” came out on

Alf Carlsson/Jiří Kotača Quartet at Donau115

Alf Carlsson – guitar;
Jiří Kotača – trumpet/flugelhorn;
Peter Korman – double bass;
Kristián Kuruc – drums;

The AC/JK quartet is a collaboration between guitarist Alf Carlsson and trumpet player Jiri Kotaca. Alf Carlsson, originally from Stockholm, Sweden, met Kotaca when studying music at Rotterdam music Conservatory in Holland. Jiri – living in Brno now, Czech republic, asked two of his brothers-in-arms slovakian drummer Kristian Kuruc and bassist Peter Korman to make the quartet full strength. The musical aim for the project is, with great integrity and respect for the jazz tradition, seek other paths than might be expected from a jazz quartet. With all the musicians meeting in a jazz context, the musical influences from the different parts of europe that which the members originates, can still be heard. The compositions are mostly originals with occasional dives into the standard repertoire. Memebers of quartet play in many projects as leaders or sidemen. For instance Matus Jakabcic big band, Cotatcha Orchestra, Tippan Phasuk, Lubomir Gašpar cymbal project or Heart of Dixie.ř%C3%AD-Kotača-Quartet-414293265622391/

Stille Kammer #8: Sewing machines, psych folk, Britten folksongs


December 1st we have an advent treat for y’all, another evening of exceptional, weird and exciting music, this time:

AGENTE COSTURA/BEN BROWN -sewing machine/percussion duo
Agente Costura is one of the most mesmerising acts performing in Berlin, the Brazilian artist and musician utilises an adapted sewing machine, feeding through synths, pedals and random noisemakers to create something fascinating and wonderful. Ben Brown will be joining her on percussion- the Canadian-born, recently arrived Berlin resident is already one of the finest drummers you will find, and we can’t wait to see what he will do in this stripped-back setting.

DIAMOND FAMILY ARCHIVE is the longtime psych folk project of british musician Laurence Collyer, we’re lucky to be able to bring him over from Devon to grace us with his hushed, lyrical, curious and beautiful compositions. “The atmosphere builds gradually, the sound rising and falling as the duo coax pulsing beats and a tidal ebb and flow of music… their songs shift like the seasons.” – Zero Tolerance

Ruby performed an amazing song at our Daniel Johnston tribute night, and then when Donau requested extra songs before closing, she blew us away with a performance of one of Benjamin Britten’s amazing folksong arrangements- so naturally we asked her back to perform a full set, accompanied by Emperor X, Hans Bilger, Sacred Harp Berlin, Markus Ehrlich, Jake Bellissimo and Rowan Coupland.

For those who don’t know Benjamin Britten, he’s one of the 20th century’s great composers, and probably the most notable from England, writing beautiful choral works, and indeed re-interpreting folksongs for the concert hall.

Silvan Schmid Solo

Silvan Schmid, Trompete (tp)

Ein Jahr lang erarbeitete Silvan Schmid aus Zürich verschiedene Solos und führte diese u.a. im Rahmen seiner Konzertreihe EP SERIES auf. Seine Solos sind Versuche Musik in vorgestellten Räumen zu kreieren. Wie formt das Spiel mit räumlichen Imaginationen die Musik? Welche Musik entsteht durch die Interaktion mit den gegebenen Raumwegen innerhalb der Trompete? Für das Konzert im Donau115 nimmt er seine Solos als Ausgangslage, legt sie übereinander und betrachtet den Querschnitt davon.


Do, 21. November

Tino Derado – p
Jonas Schoen-Philbert – sax
Josh Ginsburg – b
Matthias Meyer – dr

Fast alle schreiben wir unsere eigene Musik, in der Hoffnung, dass sie besonders gut zu unserem Ausdruck als Spieler passt (was nicht immer stimmt). Eher selten merken wir, dass die Musik eines anderen sehr gut zu uns passt. So geht es Jonas Schoen-Philbert, wann immer er Musik von Tino Derado spielen darf und so hat er schliesslich angeregt, Tino’s Musik mit seiner eigenen zusammen zu schmeissen. Das Ergebnis eine handverlesene Auswahl wunderbarer Kompositionen, gespielt von vier ebenso handverlesenen Musikern, zu hören im wunderbaren Ambiente des Donau115.
Most of us write their music, hoping it will match our personal style as a player (which is not always true!). Only sometime we realize, how well we sound in someone else’s music. This is how Jonas Schoen-Philbert feels, whenever he has a chance to play Tino Derados music. So he decided to throw Tino’s and his music together. The result is a hand selected choice of very beautiful compositions played by a finest choice of musicians to be heard in the great atmosphere of Donau115.

Stereo Heart

Greg Cohen – bass (USA)
Fabiana Striffler – violin (DE)
>>Together with<<
Eldar Tsalikov – clarinets, alto saxophone (RU)

“And now Something Completely Different “, as Monty Pythons used to say. I didn’t quote that without reason however. The mix of gags, skills, techniques and endless looking for a way to expand self-expression results it creating recording which challenges the listener by constant shift of gears and moods. (HIFI Critic)

The Duo was born in 2010 and the two have maintained a musical collaboration and a close friendship ever since their arrival in Berlin.
Guest that night will be the wonderful saxophonist and clarinetist Eldar Tsalikov.

This will be the XI´th night of their concert series “STEREO HEART” at their beloved Donau115.

Philipp Eden Trio

Xaver Rüegg — Kontrabass
Vincent Glanzmann — Schlagzeug
Philipp Eden — Piano

“Hier entsteht dringliche Ensemblemusik. Mit raffiniertem Klangsinn und animiert von einer rumorenden Gelassenheit entwickeln sich die Songs in fesselnden dynamischen Spannungsbögen. Egal ob raumgreifendes Schwelgen hingetupfter Klänge oder mit Verve beherzt und schwärmerisch dem Drang des Hymnischen folgend: Dieses Trio hat Tiefgang und verblüfft mit einer Ausdrucksdichte, die der Vorstellungskraft des Hörers Raum lässt. Eine Band, die den Raum zum Leuchten bringt und kraft ihrer Klangpoesie assoziationsreiche Geschichten erzählt. Eine anmutige Tonkunst, die mit einer erlesenen Mixtur aus zeitgenössischem Jazz, einer Prise Pop-Sensibilität und Neuer Musik von Innen berührt.”
— Florian Keller (Musikjournalist & Mitarbeiter von Intakt Records)

Simon Below Quartett

Fabian Dudek – Alt-, Sopransaxophon
Simon Below – Piano, Komposition
Yannik Tiemann – Kontrabass
Jan Philipp – Schlagzeug

Die vier jungen Musiker des Simon Below Quartetts studierten Jazz an der Hochschule für Musik Köln. Ihr Zusammenspiel ist mal extrovertiert energetisch – mal melancholisch minimalistisch! Simon Belows Kompositionen lassen eine hohe Aktionsfreiheit zu. Im März 2017 gewann das Quartett ein Stipendium der Werner Richard – Dr. Carl Dörken – Stiftung. Ihre Debut-CD, welche sie im Loft in Köln aufgenommen haben, ist bereits im Kasten (Release: Mai 2018 bei „Double Moon Records Jazz thing Next Generation“). Außerdem gewann die Band im August 2018 den international-ausgeschriebenen Avignon-Jazzpreis (“Tremplin Jazz D’Avignon”). Der Preis war eine drei-tägige Studio-Produktion im wunderbaren & renommierten “La Buissonne”-Studio. Im August 2019 – genau ein Jahr nach dem letzten Besuch in Avignon – nahmen die vier Musiker also das zweite Album der Band auf. Wie auch beim ersten Album hört man ausschließlich Kompositionen von dem Namensgeber der Band. Wann & unter welchem Label das Album erscheinen wird, wird sich bald herausstellen… “Stay tuned…”

Stilistisch bewegt sich das Quartett im Modern Jazz. Offen gehaltene Kompositionen des Namensgebers der Band garantieren Hochspannung sowohl beim Publikum als auch immer wieder aufs Neue bei den Musikern selbst. “Nicht alles von A bis Z in einer Komposition festzuhalten, ist für den Sound der Band elementar. Prozesse der Improvisation und Kommunikation sollen nicht durch zu viele Vorgaben gestört werden.“ So kann es durchaus passieren, dass phasenweise freie Improvisationen zustande kommen. Teile des Themas können an verschiedenen Orten des Takes aufkommen; auch Duo-Passagen sind jederzeit denkbar. Im Fokus steht, spontan zu interagieren und spannende Musik zu kreieren.

Zwitschermaschine: rarely does a band’s name so accurately construe the sort of music that a group plays. In 1922 German painter Paul Klee conceived the eponymous painting – four birds sit on a wire (or is it a sine-wave branch?) connected to a hand-crank. With drawn necks, wide-open beaks and jagged and rounded objects flowing from their mouths, they peer in different directions. The freedom of song converges with the discipline of mechanics. Known as the “Twittering Machine”, in English, it fits to alto saxophonist Mark Weschenfelder’s play as he conjoins the four wind instruments, which in turn are cranked-up by the rhythm section. The music is as original as the painting. With its beautifully unorthodox style, the band’s sound is defined by two flutes that flicker, glitter, twitter, in front of, beside, or with saxophone, trombone, guitar, bass and drums. Weschenfelder’s compositions offer immense flexibility and range. He doesn’t copy American musical styles, just as he stays away from writing material that might encourage improvisational grandstanding. He loves to keep the music compact, colorful, and dynamic. For Weschenfelder the principle of improvisation is vital, but you’re not going to find him repeating a new musical riff just because it’s convenient.

Even free improvisation has its clichés – something that Weschenfelder steers clear of. With its drive and mysterious aural architecture, his septet music captivates and stays with the listener long after the last note has sounded. Something special propels Weschenfelder’s Zwitschermaschine. Most of this intricate, intuitive music is notated. For it to properly develop, the distinctive sound of this jazz, progressive rock and new music admixture requires immense interpretative accuracy. Yet, despite all the necessary discipline, the pieces maintain their spontaneity and freshness. There is enough surface friction in this music to ensure that it is never sterile.
