Shackle started her 2014 US West Coast Tour yesterday with classes and a concert at the University of Colorado in Colorado Springs. Fabulous place, great people. SNOW!

Shackle has been rehearsing regularly this January and February in anticipation of our USA West Coast Tour. Listen to some of the tracks from yesterday’s session.
One of Shackle’s favorite companions is Luc van Weelden. We played a romping and delightfully chaotic set with him at OCCII.
A threesome is always more complex than a duo and playing with Luc always seduces us to wander astray in our music making.
Shackle Affair at OCCII
Shackle’s new project is to extend the Shackle System into the visual domain by using silent film bits as a compositional component. We’re building a list of questions that include how we will synchronize the film bits with our music and our cueing system, what will take precedence: music or film, and what is the optimal size of the projections on the screen. We’ll keep you posted!
Location: OCCII, Amstelveenseweg 134, Amsterdam

Shackle is Anne La Berge on flute and electronics and Deckard on laptop-instrument. Their aim is to explicitly and subtly exploit shackling in both concept and material. 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 aka Peter Quistgard.
