Shackle is Anne La Berge on flute and electronics and Robert van Heumen on laptop-instrument. Their aim is to explicitly and subtly exploit shackling in both concept and material.

Kickstarter Celebration Party

by Robert on May 1, 2012 in category Shackle Affair

On May 1 Shackle celebrated reaching the $5000 goal in our Kickstarter project to realize the Shackle Stick. This Shackle Affair installment featured bassclarinet player Oguz Buyukberber. For Oguz, the Shackle System was displayed on an lcd screen with a specially designed Shackle System interface.

The Shackle Stick is a USB stick with Shackle’s music and a video made by Maarten van Rossem. The Shackle Stick is designed by artist Isabelle Vigier. We are using Kickstarter to gather funds for the final costs. For those of you unfamiliar with Kickstarter, it is a US based funding program for creative projects based on donations from the public.
