UllU (duo with David Shively)


UllU (Hindi for “owl”) is Chris McIntyre (trombone, tapes, synths, drums) and Dave Shively (feedback, drums, tapes, combo organs, siren). Sharing both an interest in the ecstatic potential of the drone and an inescapable engagement with 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, Eli Keszler, Taylor Levine, and James Fei. August, UllU’s debut recording, is available on Non-Site Records (www.non-siterecords.bandcamp.com). In South Asian tradition, the owl is in fact considered a very foolish bird.
