Composer/Improvisor/Drum Percussion/Player


Karen Willems is a restless seeker. Always digging for more. Digging deeper.

The ever restless instinct remains at the steering wheel.

Her spontaneous, organic approach to playing has always been able to avoid clichés. Endless turning patterns often form the basis for her musical coloring pages, they are the glue that keep these many temperaments and atmospheres together.

Willems’ quirkiness has become her trademark in the meantime, and it is probably also one of the main reasons why she turns up in such different surroundings (Zita Swoon Group, Jan Swerts, Pascal Deweze, Novastar, Mauro Pawlowski, Jean DL, Aidan Baker, Eric Thielemans…)

Willems is also playing with 'Invited' a dance production of Seppe Baeyens/Ultima Vez.

Karen Willems has her own project: INWOLVES

Inwolves is sprawling, psychedelic, searching and most of all free.
Free from self-imposed restraints, free to let imagination run its course.
