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. They are keen to share their knowledge! The first workshop kicks off on 24 October and will be led by Kaja Draksler, who writes: I would like the participants to bring their own compositions and we then work from there on how to develop improvisational and personal language through composition.

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.
