Nate Wooley Interview

From NewMusicBox:

The second piece of composer and experimental trumpeter Nate Wooley’s planned seven-part Seven Storey Mountain cycle dropped on Important records last week. For this round, Wooley engaged Chris Corsano (drums) and C. Spencer Yeh (amplified violin) to join him in creating the forty-three minute, highly improvisatory single-track recording. It is a haunting, often aggressive sound world that moves from a place of chilled droning into a dense and pummeling chaos, before returning to a stressed restraint reminiscent of the work’s opening moments. In his notes to the release, Wooley cites the piece’s exploration of fear, anger, and “spiritual catharsis.”
