Forsyth, Chris / Wooley, Nate: The Duchess of Oysterville (Creative Sources)
Label: Creative Sources    
Released in: Portugal    

"Guitarist Chris Forsyth is a founding member of the iconoclastic group Peeesseye, who have released 5 CDs and performed in all manner of venue around the US and Europe since forming in 2002. Other projects include the mysterious and rarely spotted quartet Phantom Limb & Bison; the civil twilight cover band Dirty Pool; lead guitar duties for cabaret art rockers Condor Moments; and improvised encounters with the likes of Alessandro Bosetti (Italy), Chris Heenan (US), Nate Wooley (US), Burkhard Beins (GER),Tetuzi Akiyama (JP), and Ernesto Diaz-Infante(US). He has also composed and performed music for choreographer Miguel Gutierrez & the Powerful People. Forsyth has been releasing his and other's music on the Evolving Ear label since 2000.

Nate Wooley grew up in a finnish-american fishing village in Oregon. He has spent the rest of his life trying musically to find a way back to the peace and quiet of that time by whole-heartedly embracing the leap between complete absorption in sound and relative absence of the same. He began playing trumpet professionally at age 13 with his father.

Wooley's music deals more with a cobweb of sound then with pure melody and meter. He is sought out for his work in the free jazz idiom, but finds more meaning in a well prepared sound or silence or burst of feedback. He currently resides in Jersey City, New Jersey and has performed or recorded with Anthony Braxton, John Butcher, Alessandro Bosetti, Chris Forsyth, Fred Lonberg-Holm, Tony Buck, Joe Morris, Jack Wright, Fritz Welch, Jason Roebke, Scott Rosenberg, Herb Robertson, Randy Peterson, and Tim Barnes.

Current projects include:Blue Collar with Tatsuya Nakatani and Steve Swell
Attack/Adorn/Decay-a conglomerate of improvisors playing music based on the biological processes of breathing and the overall "speed" of the individual human function
Nate Wooley Quartet with Matt Moran, Reuben Radding, and Take Toriyama
