Nate Wooley is one of the most in-demand trumpet players in the burgeoning Brooklyn jazz, improv, noise, and new music scenes. On February 12, Wooley will present his newest project, For Kenneth Gaburo, at EMPAC.

The Oregon-born Wooley has performed regularly with such elder icons as John Zorn, Anthony Braxton, Eliane Radigue, Ken Vandermark, Fred Frith, Evan Parker, and Yoshi Wada, as well as being a collaborator with some of the brightest lights of his generation, such Chris Corsano, C. Spencer Yeh, Peter Evans, and Mary Halvorson. For Kenneth Gaburo refines Wooley’s concept of “combinatory sound,” which blends traditional trumpet techniques with vocalizations and mouth shapes typically used for ordinary speaking. The work takes texts by composer Kenneth Gaburo and combines synthesized tones on tape with manipulated trumpet techniques “to create shadings of the phonetic sounds inherent in the text.”

Here’s an excerpt from a previous performance of the piece:

Nate Wooley will perform For Kenneth Gaburo at EMPAC in Troy, New York, on February 12 at 8pm. Tickets are $6 to $18. For more information, call (518) 276-3921 or visit http://empac.rpi.edu/.
