Jacob Wick, Unguent & Eric Laska
Musical Performances
web_press_1

Jacob Wick is a trumpet player and improviser. Originally from the suburbs of Chicago, Wick has lived in Brooklyn, Oakland, and Los Angeles, and has performed with a variety of improvisers and composers in a variety of contexts, including at the Whitney Museum of American Art (US), the Moers Jazz Festival (DE), and el Museo Universitario Arte Contemporáneo (MX). His 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, and Dos/Tres Hongos, a duo or trio with Marc Riordan and Frank Rosaly. Jacob Wick has released recordings on Creative Sources, Prom Night Records, Relay Records, and Marginal Frequency (August 2016).

In September, Jacob Wick will tour the eastern United States playing solo sets in celebration of the August release of Two Loves on Marginal Frequency. These solo sets will focus on slowly-shifting, static textures that test the fragility of his body.
