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 with you!

Wolter Wierbos is world renowned as a trombonist but also as one of the greatest group improvisers/instant composers in the field. A longstanding member of the seminal ensemble ICP, his large ensemble experience also includes Bik Bent Braam, Sean Bergin’s M.O.B., The Ex Orchestra as well as Globe Unity Orchestra, The Berlin Contemporary Orchestra and the Cecil Taylor European Orchestra to name just a few. The main featuring of his workshop will be simply to play together as a group. There is no better way to grow as an improviser than to play with a master improviser so this is a stellar opportunity for musicians of all levels.

The daylong workshop will comprise two sessions (12 – 14.30 and 15.30 – 18.00) followed by a presentation concert in the evening. Cost of the workshop is €20 and €15 for students. There is a maximum of 10 students per workshop. We will follow all COVID-19 regulations and precautions that apply at the time of the workshop.

If you are interested in taking part please send a short cv and motivation (1/2 page) and 1 mp3 or video representative of your music to .
