The Wire
Julian Crowley
Kyle Bruckmann's new CD locates him squarely in the ranks of such uncompromising sonic anatomists as trumpeter Greg Kelley and saxophonist Bhob Rainey. Bruckmann, a double-reed specialist, uses oboe, English horn, the Chinese suona and Middle Eastern mijwiz to probe the elemental interface of moist breath and sounding instrument under close amplified scrutiny.

His findings range from precarious multiphonic tickles to intense, sustained corrosive blasts and rich chordal drones. There's an air of analytical rigour but also aesthetic pleasure in design and discovery.
