Jakob Pek
is a musical artist based on the West Coast of North America. A multi-instrumentalist, improviser, composer, and poet; a son, brother, lover, grandchild, and friend; born in B.C., Canada, raised in Las Vegas, Nevada and based in Oakland. Jakob’s deepest musical influences come from diverse realms of the musical world. On the one hand, the great finger-style guitarists of the last century have deeply inspired and guided his musical direction (Lenny Breau, Ted Green). On the other, musical artists who have pushed to the frontiers of musical exploration—the outer limits of musical perception—have also had a profound impact on Jakob’s musical life (Pauline Oliveros, Karlheinz Stockhausen). Jakob’s creative work interweaves and synthesizes diverse realms of culture, music, language and experience so as to give life to art that expands and deepens our current capacity for imaginal perception. He has toured the West Coast extensively, is a part of numerous ensembles based in the San Francisco Bay Area, and is active in curating concerts in both California and Nevada. He is co-founder of the Jam at the Barn Music Festival in Blue Diamond, Nevada.
