sample the album:
"We've been great fans of The Duchess of Oysterville, the first outing from the duo of Chris Forsyth & Nate Wooley on cd some years ago on Creative Sources (with a follow-up later on Chocolate Monk), and had been looking for an opportunity to work with them if possible.
Their duo is one of those cases that reveal different and unexpected qualities from the participants, and points to a third mind of shorts at play, a meeting that seems to open up the two towards an underexplored territory. With a palette consisting of guitar and trumpet, they make together music that often focuses on an ugly/beautiful scorched earth territory of hissing subtlety.
Third was recorded live in concert on March 16, 2013 in Philadelphia and mastered by Bhob Rainey.
Chris Forsyth is a lauded guitarist and composer whose work often assimilates art-rock textures with vernacular American influences. Long active in underground circles, he's recently released a string of acclaimed records of widescreen guitar rock, including 2014's Intensity Ghost (No Quarter) that have brought his music to the attention of a wider audience. Forsyth first became active in the experimental scene in the 2000s as a founding member of the unclassifiable experimentalists Peeesseye (w/ Fritz Welch & Jaime Fennelly). He's also collaborated with Tetuzi Akiyama, Nate Wooley, Shawn Hansen, Koen Holtkamp, Chris Heenan, and choreographer Miguel Gutierrez. He is a recipient of a 2011 Pew Fellowship in the Arts and resides in Philadelphia.
New York based trumpeter Nate Wooley has performed on over 100 recordings. Increasingly acknowledged internationally, Wooley's specific style is part of a burgeoning revolution in experimental trumpet technique with the likes of improvisers Evan Parker, John Zorn, Anthony Braxton, and Thurston Moore. His own compositions expand conceptions of linguistic based embouchure manipulation and utilize the trumpet to control amplified feedback."-Rekem Records
"As the title already indicates, this is the third release by these two, following releases on Creative Sources and Chocolate Monk. Wooley is perhaps best known from these two (at least here he is) and his trumpet playing has been released on over 100 recordings, having played with Evan Parker, John Zorn, Anthony Braxton, and Thurston Moore. The way he uses his lips in combination with feedback makes him a remarkable improviser. Forsyth is a guitarist of whom I never heard and he was a member of Peeesseye (along Fritz Welch and Jaime Fennelly), as well as improvising alongside with Tetuzi Akiyama, Nate Wooley, Shawn Hansen, Koen Holtkamp, Chris Heenan, and choreographer Miguel Gutierrez. The recordings on this record were made in Philadelphia on March 16, 2013 and contain some pretty intense, yet quiet work. Forsyth plays his guitar carefully, just a few notes every once in a while and with Wooley adding his own fine touches; maybe he's the one that makes most 'noise' here. At times, such as the opening of side B, 'Evening Rage, Part II', it sounds like an electro-acoustic composition. In other places, such as further down the line of this part, it's more like a piece of free noise rock, less any drumming. Forsyth and Wooley take you on a vivid, free trip of sounds, loud, quiet, beautiful and ugly, all seemingly played in one master stroke. It's like a painting: big brushes, small brushes, lots of paint and sometimes no paint at all. Highly abstract of course, but the more you look at it, the more you see. Great record of expertly performed improvisations."-Frans de Waard, Vital Weekly http://www.vitalweekly.net/960.html
