The Doek festival has developed over the years into a significant event for improvised music. For the next edition, we’re collaborating with the Tri-Centric Foundation to present the music of one of the greatest living composers and improvisers, Anthony Braxton.
Musicians from Tri-Centric who will be joining include Taylor Ho Bynum, Vincent Chancey, Nate Wooley, Ingrid Laubrock, Mary Halverson, James Fei, Brendon Seabrook, Tomeka Reid, and Anthony Braxton himself. Together with ten Doek musicians, they will form a large ensemble to present one of Braxton’s large-scale works.
The festival will also include compositions/improvisations by various members of both Tri-Centric and Doek, small ensemble workshops and performances, as well as interviews and talks.
“This engagement is supported by Mid Atlantic Arts Foundation through USArtists International in partnership with the National Endowment for the Arts and the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation.
