Big Fun in the Big TownSunday 29 November
Zaal 100
20:00 Free!
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.

20:00 – free entry!

Luis Vicente – trumpet
John Dikeman – saxophone
Wilbert de Joode – bass

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!
