NYC Trumpeter, Nate Wooley, is an improviser with a tactile approach to his craft, as part of an international revolution in improvised trumpet performance and is considered a leader of a movement to redefine the physical boundaries of the horn. A combination of vocalization, extreme extended technique, amplification and feedback, are utilized in Wooley’s ‘live’ sets. In 2011 he was an artist in residence at Issue Project Room (Brooklyn) and in 2016 was a recipient of a Foundation for Contemporary Arts Awards (founded in 1963 by John Cage and Jasper Johns).
Ikue Mori has been a key experimental musician since moving to New York City from Tokyo in 1977. She began her career playing drums for the seminal “no wave” group DNA. Throughout the 1980s Mori improvised and recorded with a wide range of experimental musicians, and by 1985 Mori had completely abandoned the standard drum set in favor of her own unique drum machine/sampler setup. In the years to come she further extended her electronic practice into ‘live’ computer performance, creating electronic music that evoked textural qualities of “real-world” sounds. Ikue Mori remains an ongoing collaborator with Sonic Youth, Jim O’Rourke, Okkyung Lee, and Evan Parker.
