NATE WOOLEY was born in Oregon. Fifteen years ago, he moved to New York, where he seems to be playing constantly on the jazz, noise, contemporary and improvised music circuits. An innovative trumpet player and a singular composer, WOOLEY has emerged as one of the major talents of his generation, in large part thanks to his « Seven Storey Mountain » project.

« Seven Storey Mountain » was conceived as part of a reflection on risk in music, the act of stepping outside one’s comfort zone, and the search for what WOOLEY calls “ecstaticism.” It is not as much a cycle of seven compositions as a process where the same composition gets rewritten over and over, always using a tape part made of sounds recorded around the composer’s house.

« Seven Storey Mountain I » was a piece for trio and tape. The fifth iteration to be performed at FIMAV (and released on CD in 2016 by Pleasure of the Text) involves 19 musicians: 11 improvisers plus the Brass Octet TILT. A composition for TILT will also open the concert. A program with lots of notes!
