Doek Composes – Passage by Kaja Draksler

Posted on 6 November 2020 in Audio, Concerts

Doek Composes for solo improvisers, a new and ongoing series on Doek RAW featuring original artwork by Lena Czerniawska

The second publication in this series on Doek RAW is composed by pianist Kaja Draksler. She wrote a piece called Passage. When we asked her to write a short text to accompany her composition, she created a poem by combining definitions from the Cambridge dictionary.

Passage

A way of escape.

The passage of time- the process of time going past.
