GLVU aka Gamma Like Very Ultra formed in Tucson Arizona early 2006 by founding members Joseph Delarosa and Josifa De La Rosa (Christine Heinisch). The duo began as a Found Sound, Electronic Noise and Live instrument collage project. Joe is a Bass player / Tape music collage artist, from Tucson Arizona. Josifa (Christine), formerly of the pioneering Dark Cabaret / Chamber Punk band apartment aka apartment burlesque orchestra, is an electronic musician, Trumpeter and Keyboardist from Chicago Illinois. Since it's inception, De La Rosa and De La Rosa (Heinisch) have turned their collage work into a live experimental, avant-garde rock (Avant Rock) band with nods to their various popular influences. Joella De La Rosa (Guitariella), composer / guitarist, long time friend and collaborator joined in late 2007. Under the moniker GLVU they will continue to release limited edition Electro acoustic and experimental music. 'Silhouettes in Velvet', of the Limited Edition series by GLVU, is hand labeled and hand produced on the FaceTrain label. These tracks represent a series of Tape noise music recordings remixed with live instrumental tracks. At moment's metallic and rumbling, at others sadly monstrous and ghostly these pieces, are evocative soundtracks to be digested by the ears.
