In addition to musicology, Jošt Drašler studied double bass at the Regional Conservatory in Klagenfurt with prof. Uli Langthaler. Recently, he has been intensively engaged in areas of contemporary music practices with an emphasis on free improvisation. His interest is in the potentiality of risk and it’s natural development, which generates unpredictable sound textures.

He regularly participates and organizes workshops for free improvised music (BCMF, Raziskava, refleksija, Rojišče, Mariboring, 4 States Sessions, Improcon etc.). He is cooperating with a wide variety of musicians from highly diverse genres. His broad understanding of music is crossed by various genre frames from free jazz and freely improvised music through avant-rock to flamenco.
