Dana Jessen: Carve :: Innova (2017)

“. . . a contemporary improvised bassoon sonata, with an elastically-scaled virtual wind ensemble made up of composer/oboist Kyle Bruckmann’s multiply recorded oboe and bass oboe forming the backdrop for Jessen’s elegant solo lines. . .”

sfSound : collected works | collective work (...

“Over the past decade, sfSound has explored the territory between the concert hall and the experimental music underground. sfSoundGroup, the organization’s performing ensemble, is a fluid collective of multi-faceted interpreters and composer/performers dedicated to innovative collaborative work. . .”

Splinter Reeds: Got Stung (2015)

The debut album from Splinter Reeds, featuring six new and recent works by composers Marc Mellits, Erik DeLuca, Ryan Brown, Kyle Bruckmann, Ned McGowan and Jordan Glenn.

stunp : Gebrauch :: Onyudo (2015)

stunp is the moniker under which Kyle Bruckmann produces technological Gebrauchsmusik not overtly hostile to potential dancefloor applications. While stunp tracks share many aesthetic characteristics, formal concerns, and generative processes with other projects most notably including the ongoing Technological Music series, they alone unapologetically employ genre-appropriate means of production, and as such are specifically optimized for social dancing contexts.

Technological Music Vol. 2 :: Entr’acte...

A series of calculated disasters wherein compositional intent is exercised to varying degrees before and/or after the moment of performance. The Irreproducible Results are single-pass, unedited improvisations featuring borrowed gear configured to maximize complexity and minimize predictability. The remainder are heavily edited constructions utilizing detritus of the aforementioned experiments, with the Pulse Matrices continuing a game of formal telephone begun on Vol. 1.

Jorrit Djikstra: Music for Reeds and Electron...

“As a saxophone player and composer who has integrated electronics in my music for many years, I wanted to experiment with the reed quintet – typically a classical chamber music format – by opening it up with improvisation and electronics… it ended up as a curious assemblage at the intersection of electronic music, noise, free jazz, and modern chamber music.”

Wrack: …Awaits Silent Tristero’s ...

“…Wrack is currently supporting what might be its greatest achievement: . . .a four-part suite inspired by the novels of Thomas Pynchon. Bruckmann embeds fast-flying tropes and melodies from classic jazz in his shape-shifting compositions—a kind of nod to Pynchon’s referential gamesmanship—and Wrack negotiates the tricky tunes with its usual breathless precision, adding a satisfyingly off-kilter swing and infectious sense of fun that I’ve never heard from the ensemble before.” (Chicago Reader)

mchtnchts : The Spoiled West and its Freshly ...

Kyle Bruckmann & Lance Grabmiller – analog electronics. Cassette (with download card) in a limited edition of 40. Featuring design by Pan Pan/Joshua Tabbia, and texts pilfered from Matt Shears’ 10,000 Wallpapers, Brooklyn Arts Press, used by permission.

Andrew Raffo Dewar: Interactions Quartet :: R...

“. . . There are moments in these pieces that explore the tension and interaction between noise and melody, acoustic and electronic sounds, the acousmatic blurring of sound sources, the subversion of the traditional conceptions of foreground and background events, notated structural materials that function invisibly within the music, and improvisations that can be difficult to determine where they lie on the spectrum of fixity and flux. . .”

Addleds: Mottle :: Weird Ear (2013)

Addleds explores timbral and textural extremes of distended instrumental technique via improvisation and open-ended compositional strategies. Their music tends towards a brutalist minimalism as informed by the noise underground as by recent developments in the field of free improvisation.

Technological Music Vol. 1 :: Entr’acte...

“. . . So if we read Technological Music as impressive mimicry or as high-level homage, either way we have to stop and ask: What’s the point? Haven’t we already hashed out this debate? . . . Bruckmann’s achievement is more than a stunt. It’s not just a love letter or a piss-take. . .” (Dusted Magazine)

Two Electronic Ephemera for Fidelity-Constrai...

“. . . unusually harsh outliers . . . oddly stuck in time, channeling a panicked late-Bush era Zeitgeist (the aetheric intrusions transmitted through my Z-vex pedal are, if I’m not mistaken, the ravings of a radio shock jock regarding Fidel Castro’s stepping down).” Lathe-cut 7″, ltd edition of 30.

mchtnchts : .a….i…. :: Onyudo 22 ...

Lance Grabmiller and I have been partners in shudder (with Phillip Greenlief) since 2004, on double reeds and digital electronics respectively. In 2012, we began exploring a duo configuration employing exclusively modular analog electronics. The results have thus far been delightfully nasty, unapologetically invoking our mutual love of old-school industrial crunch. Our opening salvo is available as a FREE DOWNLOAD.
