one two three is Tim Munro's debut solo album. It's a funny, terrifying, and unpredictable cassette alternately casting Munro as flutist, singer, amateur mathematician, and supervillain. Flutist in the Chicago-based Grammy-winning sextet eighth blackbird, Munro brings “fierce virtuosity" (Chicago Tribune) to this entertaining hour-long musical journey, featuring tracks by John Cage, Amy Beth Kirsten, John Fonville, Tom Johnson, Brett Dean, and Jane Rigler.

See Munro perform selections from one two three at the release show at Constellation. What to expect? An obstacle course becomes a musical instrument. A dizzying sequence of numbers is shouted at a cassette tape player. The flute is pulled to pieces, played with quirkiness, brutality and beauty.

Hand-dubbed and assembled in Chicago, the limited edition cassette tape—which includes a fold-out poster and free digital download—is included with admission to the release show.
