EKG (Kyle Bruckmann & Ernst Karel)

EKG (Kyle Bruckmann & Ernst Karel): Electricals (Another Timbre)
Label: Another Timbre    
Released in: UK    

"Electricals is the fourth duo release by Kyle Bruckmann and Ernst Karel. As on previous discs, the music is carefully constructed and extended from extracts of duo improvisations recorded in the studio and at concerts. But as the title suggests, the disc has a more electronic feel than much of their previous work, with several of the pieces sounding more akin to electro-acoustic compositions than improvisations.

A music of great skill and great beauty by two of the leading players within the US improvisation community.

Kyle Bruckmann trained classically as an oboist, but has radically broadened his playing styles, and features in a variety of improvised, free jazz, classical and avant rock settings. As well as his work with Ernst in EKG, he has released discs with musicians such as Werner Dafeldecker, Jeb Bishop, Giuseppe Ielasi, Tatsuya Nakatani and Michael Zerang.

Ernst Karel manages at the Sensory Ethnography Lab at Harvard University. He works with analogue electronics and field recordings to create audio pieces that move between the abstract and the documentary. He has worked extensively in Europe and the USA with musicians such as Olivia Block, Chris Heenan, Annette Krebs, Gert-Jan Prins, Boris Hauf, Lucio Capece, Jeph Jerman and Kevin Drumm."-Another Timbre
