Oboist and electronic musician Kyle Bruckmann recently relocated to San Francisco from Chicago, where since 1996 he had been a fixture in the thriving local experimental music underground. While teaching and free-lancing extensively as a classical musician, he collaborated regularly with many of the city’s most creative improvisers and sound artists, including Jim Baker, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Jeb Bishop, Michael Zerang, Guillermo Gregorio, Scott Rosenberg, Bob Marsh, and Olivia Block.
Ongoing affiliations include EKG, an electroacoustic duo with Ernst Karel, and the experimental punk monstrosity Lozenge. His quintet Wrack, which performs compositions drawing equally from the traditions of contemporary jazz and the classical avant-garde, recently released an album on Montreal’s Red Toucan label. As a member of Gene Coleman’s Ensemble Noamnesia, he has performed works by George Crumb, John Cage, Charles Ives, Salvatore Sciarrino, Otomo Yoshihide, Werner Dafeldecker, Cornelius Cardew, and Malcolm Goldstein, among others.
His debut CD of solo improvisations, entymology, available through Barely Auditable Records, has been hailed as “an enchanting experience that expands the possibilities (and the comprehension) of the double reed family” (François Couture, All-Music Guide). He has also recorded for Hat Art, Musica Genera, Sedimental, ToYo, Sickroom, Farrago, and Locust Music.
Bruckmann will be joined by Boris Hauf. The acoustic and electronic performer is founder of Efzeg, and part-time member of the Chicago bands TVPOW and LOZENGE. Labels such as Mego, Staalplaat, Mosz, and many more have released recordings on which he appears. In all, he has been involved in over twenty released recordings over the past 10 years. He has performed in countless venues in Europe, North Africa, Latin America, USA, and Austria. Commissions for his compositions have come from international festivals, film makers, ensembles, solo performers, theatre companies, radio and television. His studies in saxophone, flute, philosophy, cello, and media technology have taken him to schools in Vienna, Linz, London, and Bordeaux and lecture halls at the Art Institute of Chicago (USA) in Schools across Vienna. His non-profit label, Shameless, releases limited edition recordings.+ View Printed Program (PDF)
