Jeff Kaiser (www.jeffkaiser.com) 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. Kaiser considers his art audio-centric, but he also works with live video, tracking, and interactive and generative technologies.
