March 20 @ 8:00 pm - 11:59 pm

20 MARS 2017
À partir de 20h: 6$

Un des musiciens les plus sollicités au Canada, Jim Doxas joue beaucoup autant au Canada qu’à l’étranger. Il se distingue par sa démarche d’improvisation en jazz et défend l’idée que les percussions peuvent apporter une dimension tant rythmique que lyrique.

Ce qui distingue Jim Doxas dans son approche de l’improvisation est la prise de risques; il laisse l’instant lui dicter le type de structure qui va encadrer le morceau de musique, le modeler et l’orienter. Il adhère à l’idée que la musique de qualité se distingue toujours par le non-dit, ces espaces de liberté où il peut déployer son riche vocabulaire sonore.

20 MARCH 2017
Starting at 8pm: $6

One of Canada’s most sought after musicians, Jim Doxas plays extensively both nationally and overseas. Distinguished for his improvisational approach to jazz, he makes the case that percussion can be as performative as a lyrical instrument.

What distinguishes Doxas’ approach to improvisation is that he refuses to play it safe, allowing the moment to dictate the kind of framework that will contain, shape and guide the piece of music. He is astutely committed to the belief that significant music is always distinguished by what is left unsaid, the gaps of which inspire him to produce a highly original vocabulary of accents.
