TILT Zug Septet with Mario Diaz De Leon

From Roulette event page:

Composer and guitarist Mario Diaz de Leon, whose recent works have been hailed for their “hallucinatory intensity” by The New York Times, returns to Roulette with a concert of new works for ensembles. Featuring the world premiere of The Chapel Abyss, an octet composed for Talea Ensemble and commissioned by Roulette/NYSCA, and Bellum for brass septet and electronics, composed for TILT Brass, and Luciform for flute and electronics, Diaz de Leon continues his ongoing collaborations with dynamic classical ensembles of the highest calibre, combining the inventive language of contemporary classical music with overtones of underground metal and noise/drone.
