A live streamed concert of music for trumpet, toys, voice and computer by virtuoso musician Jeff Kaiser.
Jeff Kaiser is a trumpet player, composer, conductor, media technologist and ethnomusicologist. While classically trained as a trumpet player and composer, Kaiser now takes an integrative, systemic view with his traditional instrument, emergent technology (in the form of custom interactive/generative software and hardware interfaces), and space—in addition to people—all being crucial and integral participants in his dynamic and adventurous performances. He gains inspiration and ideas from the intersections of experimental composition and improvisation, and the timbral and formal affordances provided by combining traditional instruments with emerging technologies. The roots of his music are firmly in the experimental traditions within jazz, improvised and Western art music practices. Kaiser considers his art audio-centric, but he also works with live video, tracking, and interactive and generative technologies.
