Kyle Bruckmann - New Electroacoustic Music for Oboe and English Horn.

Oakland-based composer/performer Kyle Bruckmann’s work extends from a Western classical foundation into gray areas encompassing free jazz, electronic music and post-punk rock. He is a member of acclaimed new music collective sfSound, the San Francisco Contemporary Music Players, Eco Ensemble, Splinter Reeds, and Quinteto Latino, and Lecturer in Oboe at UC Santa Cruz. He has worked with the San Francisco Symphony and most of the area’s regional orchestras while remaining active in an international community of improvisers and sound artists, appearing on more than 60 recordings of various genres. During 1996-2003, he was a fixture in Chicago’s experimental music underground; long-term affiliations dating from that era include the electro-acoustic duo EKG, the art-punk monstrosity Lozenge, and the Creative Music quintet Wrack (winner of a 2012 Chamber Music America New Jazz Works grant).
