Our summer series of programs featuring emerging composer-performers continues with Bay Area oboe virtuoso Kyle Bruckmann. Bruckmann presents new sfSound-specific arrangements of pieces drawn from Wrack, his on-going project of modular compositions that "reside uncomfortably in the Creative Music/avant-jazz tradition." Also on the program is Bruckmann's highly acclaimed Gasps & Fissures for live and pre-recorded oboes, featuring microscopic constructions meticulously built around his vast repertoire of extended oboe techniques.

The program concludes with a new sfSound realization of Gavin Bryars' classic conceptual work The Sinking of the Titanic (1969). All the materials used in this lush, ambient work are derived from research and speculations about the sinking of the "unsinkable" luxury liner, in particular the hymn tunes reportedly played by the on-board musicians in the final moments of the ship's sinking.
