KRAAK is a grass-roots organisation that offers presentation and development possibilities in left field music. It’s hard to describe the functioning of KRAAK because the combination of our work strategies differs from most other organisations. We see ourselves as a quality platform, a promotor for young artists who are working within uncommon genres as avant-rock, psych, experimental electronica, free-jazz, new folk, improdrones,… We organise small ‘lab-evenings’, bigger presentation moments and creation possibilities. With a monthly mini-magazine we also try to support the experimental scene with documentation and promotion. Therefor we could be called a new style music organisation that tries to work within a variety of niches and tries to support those niches and their artists as good as possible. KRAAK and adventure are a synonymic. We want to surprise, present new stuff, or approach music from alternative direction. The most important arguments for our artistic choices are how captivating or innovative the bands are.
