Trumpeter Nate Wooley will be performing a new composition “For Kenneth Gaburo” on Feb. 12 at the the Curtis R. Priem Experimental Media and Performing Arts Center (EMPAC) at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (110 8th St., Troy). The show begins at 8 p.m.

Wooley is known for “extended” trumpet techniques that allow him to access a larger scope of sounds. For this project, he will be vocalizing texts written by Kenneth Gaburo through his instrument.

Nate Wooley joins us along with EMPAC’s Music Curator Argeo Ascani.
