Kaja Draksler – piano, composition
The newest project of the Slovenian pianist and composer Kaja Draksler brings together a colourful group of eight international musicians, based in Amsterdam. Like in her solo performances, Draksler combines composition and improvisation, drawing from a variety of styles, places and historical periods, inspired by the large array of possibilities and talents of the ensemble. Strictly notated material meets free improvisation, singer-songwriter material is superimposed by the textures inspired by modern classical composition. Intricately structured pieces alternate with simple theme & chord-based songs that offer freedom on the level of form, instrumentation and interpretation. Several pieces feature lyrics written especially for this group by the Greek artist Andriana Minou. This group is Draksler’s attempt to realize some of the thoughts on music she collected during the years of jazz and classical composition studies, as well as her experiences as an active improviser.
