Christian Wolff: For Trumpet Player

By Nate Wooley

Album: Christian Wolff: For Trumpet Player


Label: Tisser Tissu Editions

Available Formats: BooksDigital

This limited edition download and chapbook set features the second composition released from Nate Wooley’s For/With commissioning series and festival. Written specifically for Wooley, Christian Wolff has constructed a gloriously knotty and Wolff-ian set of musical questions about pacing, silence, timbre, and melodic meaning that Wooley approaches with his naturally curious and improvisatory spirit.

This download release comes with a beautiful, small book featuring an interview between Wolff and Wooley, an epic poem by Utah-based poet Craig Dworkin, and Wooley’s aphoristic writing about the challenges and rewards of For Trumpet player. The book is designed by Lasse Marhaug in TTE’s classic minimalist design.
