    UllU & TILT Brass + Release of UllU's debut recording "August" / Experimental Intermedia

    Sunday, December 15, 2013 - 8:00pm   map

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

    > Facebook Event Page



    UllU:
    Chris McIntyre - trombone, synth, drums, composition
    David Shively - feedback-drumkit, combo organ, tapes

    TILT Brass:
    Gareth Flowers, Tim Leopold – trumpet
    Jen Baker, Will Lang, Chris McIntyre – trombone
    James Rogers – contrabass trombone



    Composer/performer Chris McIntyre brings together two current ensemble projects, UllU and TILT Brass, 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 the adventurous Brooklyn-based brass group TILT Brass 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 (Guidonian Hand) on the rare contrabass trombone.

    TILT and UllU will reprise an expanded iteration of "Dedifferentiation with Brass" (2013), the collaborative work initially presented at Roulette in June. The work is conceptualized and composed by McIntyre in close collaboration with Shively (featuring the latter's innovative use of drums and metals as feedback instruments) and uses a seamless combination of conventionally notated and instructional improvising material. The transitive sonic language of "Dedifferentiation" is inspired by artist Robert Smithson’s description of a hotel in the Mexican city of Palenque. Smithson details the rich complexities inherent to the constellation of structures on the hotel grounds which are variously under construction and demolition, investigating the similarity between these states (and also to the Mayan ruins nearby).

    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 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 and pre-ordering is available via group's website (www.ullumusic.com).

    BIOGRAPHIES
    UllU (Hindi for “owl”) is Chris McIntyre (trombone, synth, drums) and Dave Shively (drums, feedback, tapes). Sharing both an interest in the ecstatic potential of the drone and a pathological inability to completely disengage from modernism, UllU perform works of extended duration in which practical mechanics of sound production collide with formal concerns. Shows at Incubator Arts Project, The Stone, Experimental Intermedia, and collaborations with TILT Brass. In South Asian tradition, the owl is in fact considered a very foolish bird.

    Led by trombonist and composer Chris McIntyre, TILT Brass is a Brooklyn-based organization dedicated to creating new content and contexts for contemporary brass music by producing inventive concert programs, recording projects, and commissioning initiatives. It boldly positions itself as the vanguard presenter, educator, and advocate for new brass music in New York City. Founded 10 years ago by McIntyre and Greg Evans, TILT primarily presents the work of living composers, having premiered nearly 40 compositions thus far. Its personnel includes many of the brightest stars from the local brass community in ensemble configurations ranging from solo and chamber groupings to experimental brass orchestra. TILT’s work is heard on releases by Tzadik, Non-Site, and POTTR.

    Christopher McIntyre leads a multi-faceted career as performer, composer, and curator/producer. He interprets and improvises on trombone and synthesizer in projects including TILT Brass, UllU duo (w/ David Shively), Either/Or, Ne(x)tworks, and 7X7 Trombone Band. His playing is heard on recordings released by the Tzadik, New World, Mode, POTTR, and Non-Site labels. He has contributed compositions to TILT, Ne(x)tworks, 7X7 (for choreographer Yoshiko Chuma), Flexible Orchestra, and B3+ brass trio. McIntyre is also active as a curator and producer with independent projects at The Kitchen, Guggenheim Museum, Issue Project Room, The Stone (June 2007), and as Artistic Director of the MATA Festival (07-10). cmcintyre.com

    David Shively performs concert and installation works in media ranging from traditional percussion to Hungarian cimbalom to analog electronics and feedback systems. Solo appearances at Dia:Beacon, EMPAC, Miller Theatre, Performa 09, SONiC Festival, the American Academy in Rome, Other Minds 13, Staatsoper Stuttgart, Wittner Tage für neue Kammermusik, Münchener Biennale. Currently based in Brooklyn, NY, he has been co-artistic director of the experimental music ensemble Either/Or since 2004, curating its programming and festivals in New York City, Boston, and Philadelphia. Recordings for Starkland, New World, Tzadik, Mode, Quecksilber, and other labels in addition to works for film, sound installation, and radio broadcast. resonantobjects.com

    Cutting-edge choreographer/ director/ performer Yoshiko Chuma continues a lifetime obsession with the mythology of danger. In π =3.14…Ramallah-Fukushima-Bogota, she intentionally confuses documentation with history, recreating steep segments from her own documented events in Ramallah, Fukushima, and Bogota. Chuma assembles a mosaic of dancers, images, filmed interviews and musical selections whose content has the effect of framing theater with barbed wire.

    From the choral group The Crossings event page: 

    "To introduce Santa Fe composer Chris Jonas (whose new work for The Crossing will be premiered June 23) we offer his ensemble Sun Spits Cherries, a remarkable combination of instruments – saxophone, two trombones, and percussion – treated masterfully in his compositional hands to the affect that they seem to form a much larger group. Chris’ style combines energetic outbursts with soft and sentimental passages; neither pure improvisation, nor entirely composed, Sun Spits Cherries braids written music, cues and conducting techniques to layer and juxtapose different subtle and startling notions of space, color, timbre and a interaction.

    Started in NYC in 1997, the Sun Spits Cherries consists of soprano saxophone, trumpet, trombone and percussion. Neither pure improvisation, nor entirely composed, these pieces braid cues and conducting techniques to layer and juxtapose composed materials, improvisations, and scored forms in order to disrupt and modify habits and place focus on space, color, timbre and interaction."
