UllU (McIntyre & Shively)

TILT 10 Performances:
June 27Roulette
UllU by R. CarrickUllU (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 and The Stone along with numerous unreleased recordings. In South Asian tradition, the owl is in fact considered a very foolish bird.
