NATE WOOLEY | MUSICAL ECOLOGIES
Originally from Oregon, Wooley has been based in New York City since 2001 where he is active in a range contemporary classical, jazz, noise, and electronic music as an interpreter, improviser, and composer. Wooley will perform a version of his long-form solo trumpet work Coyote, which takes its initial impulse from Joseph Beuys’s I Like America and America Likes Me performance, in which the artist is locked in a gallery space with a live coyote. In Coyote, Wooley acts as the ritual performer through a series of slow, subtle and deliberate movements involving the entire body, with the trumpet being the mechanistic other. The evening will begin with a conversation hosted by series curator Dan Joseph.
