SET 1

Jakob Heinemann, solo

Jakob Heinemann is a bass player, composer and educator from Madison, Wisconsin. Taking up the bass at age 10, he has worked in professional contexts since age 13, performing all over the Midwest. He enjoys working in a wide diversity of musical contexts spanning multiple genres and idioms, while at the same time honing his own voice as a composer and improvisor. Moreover, he is a committed educator who has taught many private lessons, worked with combos and big bands, and led classes in music theory and jazz improvisation. Jakob attended Lawrence University, where his main mentors included Bill Carrothers, Matt Turner, Mark Urness, and Patty Darling. Currently residing in his hometown of Madison, he plans on a move to Chicago in the fall of 2017.


SET 2

Warren Enstrom, solo

Warren Enström is a musician who finds joy in pushing unlikely materials together into unorthodox relationships: super balls into pianos, thimbles onto cymbals, and paper shredders into modulators. He likes snow, fresh art, and playing small jokes on life. As a bassoonist, Warren primarily improvises, exploring the bassoon as a modular instrument and as a noise-generating engine. He is also interested in exploring the acoustics of performance spaces in his improvisations. Warren has studied improvisation with vocalist Amanda Schoofs, guitarist Elliott Sharp, harpist Zeena Parkins, and is a proud alumni of UW-Milwaukee and Wesleyan University.
