Sound artist Gregor Siedl and drummer Nicolas Chkifi have been a close-knit duo for many years with a common drive for improvisational music.

The duo focusses on humanized electronics and beastly batting on their second release (el NEGOCITO Records). Whilst Nicolas has a deep rooting in jazz, African rhythms and a tendency for yoga extravaganza, Gregor´s background entails sound art, contemporary music, Marxist philosophy and botanophilia.

DOKO, the band name, is based on a Japanese word that can be translated as the exclamation « Where ? » and pinpoints the essence of their sonic ventures. It's in the momentum of navigating into the unknown, that the spirit of the music shines and enchants the most.

Doko is a Belgian duo of reedist/synth player Gregor Siedl and drummer Nicolas Chkifi playing free jazz scented rhythmical improvs.

Different from more popular nowadays electronics improvisers, their music isn't too abstract or psychedelic. Rooted in minimalism and obviously influenced by Berlin school of the 70s, they often sound as a freer deviation of Can.

Often well framed by real drum/ drum machine rhythmical frames, they sound most interesting when they incorporate African rhythms to bold Teutonic marching pulsation. Freer analog module filled pieces sound more nostalgic, but don't work such well.

Free sax soloing is presented too, but rhythms and analog synth loops are still dominating. In moments their music recalls early Japanese avant-rock, but the latter is much more chaotic and brutal.

Cross-genre music for required taste which has its moments.
