Meet Kyle Bruckmann

Oakland, CA-based oboist and electronic musician Kyle Bruckmann’s work extends from a Western classical foundation into gray areas encompassing free jazz, post-punk and the noise underground. He is a member of sfSound, SFCMP, Splinter Reeds, Eco Ensemble, Stockton Symphony, and Quinteto Latino, and can be heard on more than 80 recordings. Since relocating from Chicago in 2003, he has performed with the San Francisco Symphony and most of the area’s regional orchestras while remaining active within an international community of improvisers and sound artists. Significant collaborative projects he leads or co-founded include Degradient, EKG, Lozenge, and Wrack. He is a professor at University of the Pacific, and also teaches at UC Santa Cruz, Davis, and Berkeley.
