Doek is organizing a series of workshops in Splendor in Amsterdam. Doek musicians are renowned for their skills and experience in the field of improvised music and they are keen to share their knowledge with you!

The Doek approach to improvisation is not tied to any particular style, it’s about self-expression and drawing on musical experiences to create in the moment. The workshops will help you find your own improvisational voice and develop skills and insights around creativity, listening, concentration, memory, energy, intention, trust, respect, decision-making, risk-taking and responsibility.

The Impro Train rides again on 22 July. Three sets:
19.00 Giuseppe Doronzo solo reeds | Mother Tongue – tickets here
20.30 Natalio Sued solo reeds | Mother Tongue – tickets here
22.00 Ab Baars solo reeds | Mother Tongue – tickets here
Or choose a concert package and hear all three soloists and see how Mother Tongue rises to the challenge (as they surely will) of presenting three different and equally exciting shows.

On Innovation and the Future of Music (and art) is a collection of interviews by Kaja Draksler and drawings by Szymon Gąsiorek. The seven conversations with musicians of different age, background and origin, took place between April and July 2020, mostly via email.
The artists talk about their ideas about the future of music and their relationship with the concept of innovation and legacy.
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.
