gasps & fissures
Kyle Bruckmann makes use of standard instruments but then alters them electronically on gasps and fissures(482 Music 1027, 51:09). In this case he plays oboe or English horn (on the last track he is joined by Kurt Johnson on bass), but with overdubbing and electronic alteration he creates something new. As he describes it himself in the liner notes, “Sounds generated by the direct application of wind, water and flesh to wood and metal are grotesquely magnified and manipulated in time and space to sculpt music of claustrophobic intimacy and impossible physicality.” What this amounts to are attractive reedy wails and overdubbed organ chords playing fragments of melody over the amplified sounds of keys clacking and breath shushing, until it is almost like an environmental recording of nature sounds.
