About the series:

"What are they building in there? "
The Brokkenfabriek was founded by Corrie van Binsbergen in January 2008. Motivated, talented musicians with an interest in the combination of composition/improvisation receive masterclasses for a month, from different musical leaders. Every leader has, of course, a completely different approach and the material that is offered is therefore very varied. The BrokkenFabriek consists of a pool of musicians and changes every month, depending on the workshopleader and his plans. 
Workshop leaders past were: Corrie van Binsbergen, Joost Buis, Hans Hasebos, Albert van Veenendaal, Arend Niks, Ernst Reijseger, Anton Goudsmit, Guus Janssen, Oene van Geel, Felicity Provan, David Kweksilber, Michael Moore, Michael Burr, Alan Purves, Raphael Vanoli, Wilbert de Joode and Sean Bergin.
