Eric Boeren | Back
Trumpet & Cornet

Apart from a brief teenage spell playing euphonium and tuba in a brass band, Eric Boeren's musical career has concentrated on trumpet and cornet (which he much prefers). He became committed to the cause of free improvisation at the early age of 18, and since 1982 has been involved in an extensive range of projects, initially just in his native Holland, but increasingly with other members of the wider European improvising community. However, rather than operate in a completely spontaneous musical environment, Eric has explored the relationships between composition and freedom, and since 1995 has frequently returned to the early music of Ornette Coleman, reinterpreting it through the process of group improvisation.
