UllU joins violinist Todd Reynolds in a double bill on John King's monthly series Born Into Flames. UllU (Hindi for “owl”) is Chris McIntyre on trombone, tapes, synths, and drums, and Either/Or's David Shively on feedback-drumkit, tapes, and piano. They share an interest in the ecstatic potential of the drone and an inability to escape Modernism. UllU perform works of extended duration in which practical mechanics of sound production collide with formal concerns. Previous shows at Incubator Arts Project, The Stone, Experimental Intermedia, and collaborations with TILT Brass, Eli Keszler, Taylor Levine, and James Fei. August, UllU’s debut recording, is available on Non-Site Records. In South Asian tradition, the owl is in fact considered a very foolish bird.
