As he takes on more projects than before, it's also no coincidence that Doran is also involved in more specifically improvisation-based projects than before. "Funny enough, this genre has less and less following," he says, "but many creative musicians are working in this field." Doran has been toiling away productively in this field for over 40 years and has no inclination towards less challenging music. "Generally, I think it's safe to say that I'll always be looking for new musical ground and new approaches to be found."
