The Impro Train is back, baby!
Three sets by two ensembles. Go to one, go to them all, either way it’ll be a fabulous evening.
Saxophone, piano and percussion form the sound of Hupata!, alongside a wonky, wobbly, rickety, going hog wild wagon filled with toys, which transform and take shapes of birds, elephants, camels, taking you for a journey.
Doek composes for solo improvisers, a new and ongoing series on Doek RAW featuring original artwork by Lena Czerniawska.
TIMBRAL REFLECTION is a sound poem, a little excuse to arouse the reflection of the movement inside one sound.
One of the main pillars of Doek is how improvising musicians deal with composed musical elements. When the world was struck by the corona virus and all of us were asked to isolate ourselves as much as possible, we thought: what can we do to perpetuate our music and still share it with our audience and each other?
Workshop 11.00 -13.30 and 14.30 – 17.00
Doek has been offering a series of workshops at the wonderful Amsterdam venue, Splendor. The past few months we’ve had to cancel workshops because of corona regulations so we’re very excited that Eric will be able present this workshop Saturday. If you’ve been missing opportunities to work with other musicians, here’s your chance!
“In my workshop I would like to work with you on solo playing within a group context also known as collective improvisation.
