Doek is presenting a series of impro workshops in Splendor. This Saturday 2 October Ada Rave will lead the workshop. Her approach: ‘In this workshop we will compose music together through spontaneous communication, working on expanding our palette of sounds and using it as material for improvisation. We will play with textural and formal ideas to let the music move through the space.’
The daylong workshop will comprise two sessions (11-13.30 and 15-17) followed by a presentation concert in the evening.
