Wooley, Nate
Wrong Shape to be a Story Teller

Wooley, Nate: Wrong Shape to be a Story Teller (Creative Sources)
Label: Creative Sources    
Released in: Portugal    

"If you really want to test yourselves, putting your money where your mouth is during those discussions with your friends about "lowercase", "reductionism" and other by now trendy definitions, look no further than this exquisitely hostile work, where Nate Wooley tackles silence and calmness through a series of postcards from the hell of deviant trumpet. Wrecking all institutional conventions, Wooley extracts pneumatic excursions and electrostatic aromas from the nails of a buggy muteness, at times provoking the listener with machine-like holds/ostinatos and eruptions of charged clumsiness, then inviting the surrounding environment to take his place while he develops the next ideas as soon as they come to mind. Clucks and breath become a challenge to the sophistication of what is "acceptable" in improvisation and certainly Wooley is not the kind of artist likely to look back after his corrosive statements; in this album, even the absence of events becomes dangerous."-Massimo Ricci (Touching Extremes)
