Kyle Motl

Kyle Motl is a bassist, composer, and improviser described as a “spectacularly adventurous and dynamic musician” whose playing is noted for both “iridescent delicacy as well as abrasive force” (The Wire). His solo music “promise[s] to change us by revealing things we could never have imagined” (Free Jazz Collective). Kyle’s work inhabits territories composed and improvised, including projects with Treesearch, Patrick Shiroishi, Clucas/Motl/Hubbard, and Anthony Davis, and working with groups including the International Contemporary Ensemble and Ghost Ensemble. His recent album, Hydra Nightingale, features works by Caroline Louise Miller, Anqi Liu, Jessie Cox, and Asher Tobin Chodos.
