Ingrid Laubrock – duos and interview

So It Goes is a theatre piece based on Kurt Vonneguts cult novel Slaughterhouse-Five. Freek Vielen will do a powerful reading of his text. The Ambush Party will play a concert of improvised music and a composition by Harald Austbø.
19 January – 18 February
Listen to the second set of their live performance at Cafe Oto which took place last year just after they performed at Doek Festival #12. It will be available for one month here.
Watch the Cafe Oto site for more – they are about to launch a new digital subscription service featuring downloads of numerous concerts including the first set from this concert.
As part of its 40th anniversary the Bimhuis gives has given carte blanche to the wonderful sax player Tobias Delius, in an adventurous exchange between musicians from Berlin and Amsterdam, featuring drummer Christian Lillinger.
Tenor sax and clarinet player Tobias Delius moved to Amsterdam 25 years ago putting his stamp on the local improv scene as a member of ICP Orchestra and many other bands.
In 2015 Doek musicians will continue to play at Eye cinema. They will provide a live accompaniment to a selection of Jean Desmet’s films. Each night a curator makes a special selection from Desmet’s work.
19.15 hr: Between insanity & scholarship: lecture by Diederik Jekel
Self-declared nerd Diederik Jekel is fascinated by the years when Desmet released his films: it is the same era which saw the rise of modern physics.
