Kyle Bruckmann: Entymology

Kyle Bruckmann: Entymology

No, you read it right. There is no misspelling because in exploring his instrument's vocabulary, Kyle Bruckmann produces at times sounds that evoke the flight of an insect. Kyle Bruckmann is a young oboe player who just released what is probably the first solo recording on this instrument (two other double reed instruments are featured as well: the English horn and the Chinese suona).

The music covers a wide range of moods: mysterious, pastoral, contemplative and I even think that "10" is just hilarious (Kyle Bruckmann chose not to name any of his improvisations). Kyle Bruckmann's classical training shows on some of the pieces. "4" is reminiscent of the opening of Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring". Middle Eastern music might not be a direct influence, but here and there the music also gives you this impression ("2").

The variety of sounds Kyle Bruckmann gets out of his instruments is astonishing - sometimes not using a reed. I think in particular of "11" where he manages to make his English horn sound like an electronic keyboard. What's most important is that, in his search for new sounds, Kyle Bruckmann does not sacrifice musicality, which makes "Entymology" easily recommended to anyone who wants to start apprehending "free improvisation".—Alain Drouot
