In 2016 Penumbra Music published “The Amplified Palette: A History in Pictures” to mark the 25th anniversary of his work with this electroacoustic instrument.

Jakob Heinemann is a bass player, composer, improvisor and educator from Madison, Wisconsin. In 2017, he graduated from Lawrence University with a degree in music performance, where he studied with many great artists, including Bill Carrothers, Matt Turner, Patty Darling and Mark Urness.
