UllU with TILT Brass at XI /// Release of debut recording "August"

Experimental Intermedia
224 Centre Street at Grand, Third Floor
New York, NY 10013

UllU and the adventurous Brooklyn-based brass group TILT Brass join forces for a special collaborative evening of ecstatic noise and orchestral bliss at composer and filmmaker Phill Niblock’s venerated Experimental Intermedia loft (celebrating its 40th year of concert presentations).

The first half features an improvised set by UllU ("owl" in Hindi), the duo project of McIntyre and renowned percussionist David Shively (Either/Or). A 6-piece compliment of TILT  joins for the second half including trumpeters Gareth Flowers (ICE) and Tim Leopold (Meridian Arts Ens.), Jen Baker (Asphalt Orchestra) and Will Lang (loadbang) on trombone, and James Rogers on the rare contrabass trombone.


The 15 Dec event is also the official release of UllU’s debut recording August on Non-Site Records. The release's three tracks contain material recorded live and then edited at Shively's Williamsburg studio. August captures the duo in full experimental mode, probing its potential collaborative language from within the sonic syntax emanating from Shively's idiosyncratic feedback instrumentarium and McIntyre's fleshy trombone sound and virtual-analog synth convolutions. Signed CD's will be available at the venue.
