Solo trumpet

The trumpet is a three meter long tube with a diameter of around one centimeter that is twisted into an ovoid shape about one-third of a meter long. This tube is interrupted by a set of piston valves, the machinery of which was developed around the same time as automobile engines.

In his solo performances, Jacob Wick uses the physical construction of the instrument in tandem with the emotional construction of the instrument in an attempt to create an intimate environment for himself and whoever and whatever else happens to be nearby.
