From Wolves To Whales – Wooley/Rempis/Niggenkemper/Corsano


Er zijn geen tickets meer beschikbaar omdat dit event reeds is begonnen/voorbij is.

Trompettist Nate Wooley en saxofonist Dave Rempis staan op dinsdag 14 november op het podium van de Pletterij met hun kwartet WOOLEY/REMPIS/NIGGENKEMPER/CORSANO. Hun debuutalbum FROM WOLVES TO WHALES werd in februari 2014 in de studio samengesteld uit drie registraties van optredens in Manhattan en Brooklyn. Na een aantal succesvolle concerten in Brooklyn in de zomer van 2016, toert de band in november van dit jaar door Europa en doet daarbij ook de Pletterij aan.

De Amerikaan Nate Wooley begon al op zijn dertiende professioneel trompet te spelen. De tijd die hij tijdens zijn jeugd in het rustige Oregon doorbracht, oefende een grote invloed uit op zijn muzikale esthetiek, maar komt nergens zo scherp en duidelijk tot uiting als in zijn solo trompetuitvoeringen. Wooley verhuisde in 2001 naar New York, en werd één van de meest gewilde trompettisten in de ontluikende jazz-, improvisatie-, nieuwe muziek- en noisescene van Brooklyn. Hij trad regelmatig op met iconen als John Zorn, Anthony Braxton, Fred Frith, Evan Parker en Yoshi Wada. Zijn zoektocht naar nieuwe en grensverleggende speeltechnieken, zijn compromisloze spel met klanken, zijn deconstructie van melodie, harmonie en ritme, zijn flirt met noise en zijn experiment met geluidsversterking maken van hem een bijzonder vurige en innovatieve muzikant.

Having crossed paths around the world many times over the years, Nate Wooley and Dave Rempis finally realized their long-time intention of forming a band together in the winter of 2014, with a collaborative lineup that can only be described as stellar.  Featuring some of the leading lights of both the New York and Chicago improvised music scenes, the four members of this quartet, all internationally acclaimed players in their own right, found a common language as a unit right from the start.  Their eponymous debut recording From Wolves To Whales  was made in the studio following three concerts in Manhattan and Brooklyn in February of 2014, and the inventive and a-typical flow of their improvisations shows a band operating at a higher level of creativity from the get-go.  This document came out on Aerophonic Records in 2015, and showcases the remarkably broad stylistic range the band has tackled, spanning from microcosmic sound pallets to passages bounding with unbridled energy.  After another handful of concerts in Brooklyn in the summer of 2016, the band now plans a European tour in November of 2017.

was born in 1974 in Clatskanie, Oregon, a town of 2,000 people in the timber country of the Pacific Northwestern corner of the U.S. He began playing trumpet professionally with his father, a big band saxophonist, at the age of 13. His time in Oregon, a place of relative quiet and slow time reference, instilled in Nate a musical aesthetic that has informed all of his music making for the past 20 years, but in no situation more than his solo trumpet performances.
