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. A different Doek musician will lead each workshop, so every workshop will be different – and fun!

The daylong workshop will comprise two sessions (11-13.30 and 15-17) followed by a presentation concert in the evening. Cost of the workshop is €20 and €15 for students. Of course we will follow all COVID-19 regulations that apply at the time of the workshop.

Kaja Draksler, Michael Moore and Eric Boeren presented their workshops in 2020 and early 2021. The rest of the Doek musicians look forward to working with you on the following dates:
11 September      Wolter Wierbos
02 October           Ada Rave
