MIKSTUUR was a concert series that opened the stage to improvisation, experimentation, but also composition and unique musical moments! Whether it means musicians playing together for the first time, approaching their material in a new way or performing interestingly curated set of compositions – it always puts both the performers and listeners on their toes, waiting what happens next!

Mikstuur mostly took place in Philly Joe’s Tallinn, during 2016 and 2017.
