Jakob Pek is a multi-instrumentalist improviser/composer currently based in Oakland, CA. His work is a conscious interweaving of multiple, far removed musical traditions with a living expression of contemporary experimentalism. An active innovator, Jakob seeks to recontextualize and redefine musics that our ears know all too well while liberating our traditional musical instruments by presenting them in tandem with pure sound, free form expressionism, and conscious silence.
