"TILT Brass is a Brooklyn-based experimental music organization dedicated to expanding the world of contemporary brass performance by producing innovative concert programs and recording projects, and by commissioning new works for its two ensembles, TILT Creative Brass Band (CBB) and TILT SIXtet (bios below). Since forming in 2003, TILT Brass has presented the work of over 50 composers, including group members and local colleagues, as well as established masters. TILT's repertoire engages its audience with musical experiences ranging from sonorous soundscapes to the raucous strains of a street band, from freely improvised explorations to the precision and clarity of fully notated chamber music (often combining the latter two within a single work).
Led by composer, curator, and trombonist Chris McIntyre, the musicians of TILT Brass are among the finest on their respective instruments and in their varied fields of activity. The 10-piece Creative Brass Band, the organization's founding ensemble, features artists such trumpeters Shane Endsley and Gareth Flowers, trombonist Jacob Garchik, and percussionist Kevin Norton. SIXtet, a 6-piece "triple duo" of trumpets, trombones, and tubas, features such stalwarts as Nate Wooley and Russ Johnson on trumpet, and Curtis Hasselbring on trombone. TILT projects have been presented in a number of vital New York venues including the Whitney Museum, ISSUE Project Room, Joe's Pub, Cornelia Street Cafe, and The Stone.
TILT Brass presents thematic concert programs, such as New York Noise (historical and current works by important artists from the NYC Downtown community) and To TILT: Original Music for TILT Brass, both on-going, multi-season series. Its existing repertoire includes works by contemporary masters such as Anthony Coleman, Lois V. Vierk, John Adams, Nick Didkovsky, and John King, mid-career peers like Chris Jonas and Taylor Ho Bynum, and composing ensemble members Norton, Wooley, and Hasselbring. TILT Brass' first full-length recording was released in April 2011. To TILT: Volume 1, the first in a series presenting commissioned works, features the Creative Brass Band. Vol. 2, scheduled for release in Spring 2012, will feature the SIXtet project.
