Stille Kammer #9: japanese zither, indie harmony, digital dreams

The first Stille Kammer of 2020, and the lineup is a stunner…

Lixue Lin-Siedler – Lin 凛- trained in both the Chinese Guzheng and the Japanese Koto. With a body of work spanning theatre music, traditional East Asian music, jazz and experimental improvisation, she brings a range of diverse influence to her instrument. With her collaborator- composer and double-bassist Marcel Siegel- they will be presenting their new single, two highly original musicians offering a fascinating sonic contrast.

MATCHING OUTFITS showcase the beguiling lyrical and compositional style of Swedish singer-songwriter Linnea Mårtensson – full of textural surprises, dry witticisms and wistful balladry, backed up by the sun-streaked harmonies of bandmates Rachel Glassberg and Leah Corper. Catchy and captivating in equal measure.

Glasgow-based producer and songwriter MICHAEL BLEACH makes a rare live appearance in Berlin by special invitation. Known for his songwriting collaborations with Lord Magpie and Kate and Nina Scott, and his producer credits with Ben Osborn, his own compositions are a wildly eclectic electronic palette grounded by yearning poetic lyrics and irresistible melodies.

Practically Married #23: New Year, Old Love

Practically Married #23: New Year, Old Love

James Banner – Double Bass
Declan Forde – Piano

We are back, in duo! After months and months of special guests, we realised that no-one else really matters except us. So let’s celebrate the original twosome once more, at Donau115!

James and Declan have been ‘Practically Married’ since April 2015, a name proudly awarded to them due to their ability to spend time together almost every day with only minor frustrations, and the fact that they play almost every concert together.

Since 2015 they have collaborated with Vilde&Inga, Tobias Delius, John Hollenbeck, Max Andrzejewski, João Lopes Pereira, Eric Vaughn and many more, and have become a regular fixture on the Berlin swing dance scene, performing with Ugo Alunni and The Good Old Good Ones. They also perform as part of other acts including the award-winning Rachel Sermanni and James Banner’s USINE, and have performed sold out shows at Spiegesaal and Konzerthaus Berlin (with Fabiana Striffler and Mirna Bogdanovic) and Leeds Jazz Festival in 2018. Upcoming releases are planned for 2019 with Jordan Dinsdale & Will Howard (UK), as well as Toby Delius & Max Andrzejewski playing the music of Herbie Nichols.
Practically Married + João Lopes Pereira – Circus is available on Bandcamp.
