Wrack, Rempis/Rosaly Duo All Ages Soundboard

When: Thu., June 10, 10 p.m. 2010

Former Chicagoan Kyle Bruckmann has played oboe, English horn, and/or electronics in a wide variety of contexts—the deconstructed rock band Pink Mountain, the electroacoustic duo EKG, the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra—but it's still possible to find a single sentence to describe his entire body of his work: he makes creative use of the tension between seemingly irreconcilable musical elements. His acoustic quintet Wrack—with violist Jen Clare Paulson, bassist Anton Hatwich, bass clarinetist Jason Stein, and drummer Tim Daisy—gets its push from the unbridled solos and runaway rhythms of jazz and its pull from the careful contrapuntal structures and nuanced interactions of contemporary chamber music. Wrack are on a short midwestern tour, breaking in new material that they'll record this fall in the Bay Area as part of a project that will also include a collaboration with the ROVA Saxophone Quartet.
