Kaja Draksler Octet

The central project of Slovenian pianist and composer Kaja Draksler brings together a colourful group of eight international musicians based in Amsterdam. The first set of compositions was recorded for Clean Feed and released as "Gledalec" in 2017.

As in her solo performances, Draksler combines performance, composition and improvisation, drawing from a variety of styles, places and historical eras, inspired by the ensemble's vast array of possibilities and talents.

After performing the varied programme of "Gledalec", Draksler decided to concentrate the new repertoire on the poetry of Robert Frost. The process of composing was very much influenced by the experience and knowledge she learned from working with the group. This group is Draksler's attempt to realize some of the thoughts about music that she gained during her student years in jazz and classical composition, as well as her experience as an active improviser.
