Sound American's new website publishes its entire archive

The online zine run by US composer Nate Wooley makes every issue available

Nate Wooley’s Sound American online zine has launched a new website housing its entire archive, from its first edition, The Gospel Issue, to its newest, which is all about Anthony Braxton, from Ghost Trance Music to now. Sound American has also announced its first physical release – a selection of chamber music tracks by composer Alex Mincek performed by members of Yarn/Wire, Mivos Quartet and Wet Ink Ensembles. A recording of New American Songbook works will follow early next year featuring a first-time collaboration between Ron Miles, Mary Halvorson and Greg Saunier.

Nate Wooley was the subject of a feature by Philip Clark in The Wire 390. Subscribers can read it via Exact Editions.
