Sunday 29 November
The last edition of DOEK@Zaal100 for this year focuses on the community around the various creative musical approaches within the Amsterdam music scene and introduces a website project tightly connected to this scene.
With the participation of several curators and organisers from the scene the evening begins with short self-introductions and discussion sessions with focus on the working mechanisms, changes and developments within the community.
We’ll then show Big Fun in the Big Town, a great film about another music scene – the hip hop scene in New York in the mid 80s.

Surrealism in Mexico
It’s an annual treat in EYE on Art’s Masters of the Avantgarde series: the screening of the first surrealist film, Un chien andalou, Luis Buñuel’s masterpiece of 1929 which he co-scripted with Salvador Dalí. A special detail: surrealist leader André Breton showed the film as he was touring Mexico, where he also encountered Leon Trotsky.

This month we will be doing a live recording in Zaal 100 with a quartet chosen by Portuguese trumpet monster Luis Vicente. It could be argued that live performance is the ideal environment for recording improvised music. So much of the music draws on the energy of the room and the audience. Come be a part of the process and hear this quartet in action!
