Kyle Bruckmann's Degradient: Dear Everyone

Read "Dear Everyone" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Diceva Luciano Berio nel 1974, a proposito della ricerca di “analogie specifiche" tra linguaggio verbale e musica, che “proprio questo tipo di ricerca è un altro modo di vivere una delle condizioni più reali e permanenti della musica, che è quella di rincorrere senza sosta un'utopia di linguaggio," per “scoprire nuove e provvisorie relazioni tra suono ...

Rova Saxophone Quartet: Steve Lacy’s Saxophone Special Revisited

Read "Steve Lacy’s Saxophone Special Revisited" reviewed by Mark Corroto

If you own a copy of the original Saxophone Special (Emanem, 1975), flip the LP over to view a photocopy of Steve Lacy's original notebook (with spiral binding) score of the compositions “Staples," “Swishes," and “Snaps."

Kyle Bruckmann's Wrack: …Awaits Silent Tristero’s Empire

Read "…Awaits Silent Tristero’s Empire" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro

Quarantatre anni, un po' chicagoano e un po' californiano, Kyle Bruckmann conferma in questo suo nuovo lavoro quanto sia per lui irrinunciabile tenere il piede in più scarpe. A suo tempo intruppato come fisarmonicista e tastierista in una “sgangherata rock band" (la definizione non è nostra) come i Lozenge, Bruckmann se n'è poi venuto fuori -fra ...

Kyle Bruckmann's Wrack: ...Awaits Silent Tristero's Empire

Oboist Kyle Bruckmann conceived this post-modern “musical phantasmagoria" as the first long-form composition written for Wrack, his experimental chamber jazz ensemble, employing an expanded ...
