Nate Wooley - [excerpt from second improvisation]

Full review to follow. New York trumpeter Nate Wooley served as the opener for tourmate Ken Vandermark and his Made to Break project. Playing solo, Wooley sat on the lip of the stage, with his horn wired up to a guitar pedal. Employing drones and various extended techniques, his pedal-controlled electroacoustic tap-bursts brought to mind the similar methods employed by Colin Stetson, but Wooley's approach here is less inherently tuneful, more interested in creating a sonic terrain.
