Nate Wooley’s “Seven Storey Mountain” is a sequence of compositions based on Thomas Merton’s account of his spiritual quest.
"…the climax came in a striking sequence of bold, sonorous chords on trumpets and trombones, played by members of Tilt Brass.”
Tilted Arc (1981) - TILT Brass name derived from famously demolished R. Serra on Fed Plaza in NYC
TILT Brass turned 10 on Jan. 20th, 2013! We’re working very hard on a mini-festival of events in June of this year titled of “TILT 10” to celebrate. This page on our website (which features embedded posts from a dedicated Tumblr site) is the place to find out information about the upcoming events as well as occasional historical posts exploring our first 10 years.
The latter category begins with the release of the extent audio documentation of TILT Brass’ very first performance at Bowery Poetry Club! Listen to it here!
