about

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

Pulse by Marta Warelis

"This little game was inspired by an idea of eternal return.
By following a simple structure I was hoping to create a feeling of an endless cycle, where you build up and tear down to the starting point at every turn, but without an obvious effect in sound."

Kaja Draksler: MiniNova synthesizer
Ada Rave: bass clarinet
Marta Warelis: piano and bells
Eric Boeren - cornet
Wolter Wierbos: trombone
Jasper Stadhouders: acoustic guitar
John Dikeman: tenor sax

Doek Composes
One of the main pillars of Doek is how improvising musicians deal with composed musical elements. When the world was struck by the corona virus and all of us were asked to isolate ourselves as much as possible, we thought: what can we do to perpetuate our music and still share it with our audience and each other? We came up with the simple idea that each Doek member, who feels so inclined, composes a piece for solo improvisers. Each Doek member, who feels so inclined, records each composition in his or her own way, which results in a broad palette of interpretations of the exact same composed material, but played in completely unique ways by each player. It’s an open invitation to compose and record. It gives an image of who we are individually as composers, improvisers and interpreters. Completely in line with Doek’s vision. Next to that, these compositions could easily be included in Doek’s Amsterdam Real Book project, which is a vast and open ended collection of compositions written by Amsterdam composers in Amsterdam for Amsterdam improvisers.
