Nate Wooley Seeks To Broaden Representation of American Music

Nate Wooley will be co-headlining the upcoming April 25th performance at The Alternate Space, alongside Ken Vandermark. What some may not know is that Wooley, who has gathered international acclaim for his idiosyncratic trumpet language, also has another passion - broadening the definition of American music.

 Wooley is the curator of the Database of Recorded Music (DRAM) and the editor-in-chief of their online quarterly journal, Sound American, both of which are dedicated to broadening the definition of American music through their online presence and the physical distribution of the music through Sound American Records. DRAM is a not-for-profit resource providing education communities with on-demand streaming access to CD-quality audio, complete original liner notes and essays from independent record labels and sound archives. The primary focus is the preservation and dissemination of important recordings that have been neglected by the commercial marketplace, recordings that may otherwise become lost or forgotten.

 DRAM is available to anyone at a participating university, college or public library.

 The Deeply Discounted II/Sequences of Snow event will take place on April 25th at The Alternate Space located at 125 Walnut Street, MA 02472. Doors open at 7:30 p.m.
