Posted on 1 April 2021 in Media, News, Video

The first five episodes of Eric Boeren’s Musicians talk can be seen on the YouTube playlist above.
We hope to find funding to continue this series; in the meantime here’s plenty to stimulate your curiosity.

MUSICIANS TALK On tour, over dinner, in the car, in the train, at airports, during and after rehearsals, musicians don’t tend to talk much about music, but when they do you get to hear ins and outs that somehow never seem to surface in articles.

In several round table discussions, Eric Boeren spoke with musicians he has played with over the years.

Doek Composes – Emptier by Michael Moore

Posted on 1 February 2021 in Audio, Media

Doek composes for solo improvisers, a new and ongoing series on Doek RAW featuring original artwork by Lena Czerniawska.

“Emptier was written after hearing news of Cor Fuhler’s passing. The title refers to both how life is during the Covid-19 pandemic and how it is without Mr. Fuhler.
It’s sappy, I know, and Cor would have hated it, but I remain true to myself, as Cor always was.”
Michael

Doek Composes
One of the main pillars of Doek is how improvising musicians deal with composed musical elements.
