Nate Wooley
New Music Circle presents Ikue Mori, electronics, and Nate Wooley, amplified trumpet, on Saturday, February 18, at 8 p.m. "Ikue Mori has been a key experimental musician since moving to New York City from Tokyo in 1977. Inspired by the music of punk rock, she began her career playing drums for the seminal No Wave group DNA. Throughout the 1980's Mori improvised and recorded with a wide range of experimental musicians, and by 1985 had completely abandoned the standard drum set in favor of her own unique drum machine/sampler setup. Nate Wooley is an experimental trumpeter and improviser currently based in New York City. Critically regarded as one of the leading lights of a movement to redefine the physical boundaries of the horn, Wooley has gathered international acclaim for his idiosyncratic trumpet language and vigorous sound - utilizing extended technique, amplification and feedback to create site-specific spontaneous compositions. A collaborator with some of the brightest voices of his generation like Chris Corsano, C. Spencer Yeh, and Mary Halvorson, Wooley has been been championed by icons such as John Zorn, Anthony Braxton, Eliane Radigue, and Evan Parker." The performance takes place at Joe's Café, 6014 Kingsbury. For more information:
