Kyle Bruckmann (born 1971) is an American composer and oboist based in San Francisco, California.

Getting his musical start playing in industrial and hardcore bands,[1] Bruckmann then studied oboe with Robert Atherholt at Rice University. He earned his masters at the University of Michigan (MM 1996) under Harry Sargous and contemporary improvisor Ed Sarath.[2]

His musical aesthetic varies widely, from traditional Western classical to free jazz, electronic music and post-punk rock.[3] and he cites Charlemagne Palestine as an influence.[1]

His work has been recorded by the labels Porter Records, 482 Music, and New World Records, among others.
