During their two days at STEIM’s studio 3, the international participants of Shackle’s Converging Objects workshop will work together with Anne La Berge, Robert van Heumen and Luc van Weelden on a structured improvisation piece, using both acoustic and electronic instruments. We will premiere this piece at the concert tonight!
The second set will be a Shackle Affair. In the Shackle Affair, a guest plays with Shackle and the Shackle System. The guest for this set is hard/software hacking wizard Luc van Weelden.
Converging Objects artists: Vilbjørg Broch, Inge van den Kroonenberg, Steve Jones, Stefano Kalonaris , Mark Summers, Giorgio Distante, Nicoleta Chatzopoulou, Xander Sijperda, Musfik Can Muftuoglu, Chi-Hsia Lai, Josh Hu and Jan Klug.
The duo Shackle is not only a vehicle for Robert and Anne to explore and discover ways to bring exciting and interactive new music to our public, it is an ongoing project to invite other artists to enter into our intimate way of working. We call Shackle + Guests the Shackle Affair.
We just returned from a few days in Istanbul where we led another Converging Objects workshop and played a concert at Bilgi University. The students were smart, motivated and full of energy and we think we may have taught them a few things too!
Many thanks to Tolga Tuzun for hosting us and to the technical assistants for making all the setups and sound checks a breeze.
Shackle has been invited for a concert and artist talk at KISS2013. No, this has nothing to do with the glamrock band, it is the yearly Kyma Symposium, held in Brussels this time from 12-15 September. Should be a lot of nerding out. Great!
