Columbia’s if ART Gallery presents on Saturday, September 17, 2016, 8:30 p.m., a solo concert of trumpet investigations by renowned jazz and improv trumpet player Jacob Wick.
Admission is $10; concert, at 8:30; doors open at 7:30.
Wick’s solo concert at if ART Gallery is part of his tour of the eastern United States in support and celebration of the August release of his record Two Loves On Marginal Frequency. Wick’s solo sets focus on slowly-shifting, static textures that test the fragility of his body.
Jacob Wick is a trumpet player and improviser. Originally from the suburbs of Chicago, Wick has lived in Brooklyn, NY, Oakland, Cal., and Los Angeles. He has performed with a variety of improvisers and composers in different contexts, including at New York’s Whitney Museum of American Art, the Moers Jazz Festival in Germany, and el Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo in Mexico.
Wick’s approach is indebted to a wild commitment to queer politics and years of cruising contemporary and 20th century art and/or life theories. Current projects include an often-shifting solo trumpet performance, slowly building listening and/or visualization exercises. He also performs with Do...s/Tres Hongos with Marc Riordan and Frank Rosaly. Wick has released recordings on Creative Sources, Prom Night Records, Relay Records, and Marginal Frequency (August 2016).
