Curves Project

Shackle is collaborating with Männer mit Motoren on a new project called Curves. We are applying to EMPAC in Troy US for a residency and we will embark on a tour to Chili South America in the fall of 2017. Very exciting!

Curves is a continuation of previous collaborations between Shackle and Männer mit Motoren. For the past three years they have come together for short intensive working periods to develop their own collaborative methods for interactive image and sound improvisations. By combining both composition and improvisation while using acoustic and electronic sounds the two duos have formed a shared workplace. They plan to research and expand their past boundaries of real-time audio-visual performances during their upcoming work periods on the Curves project.

Fabulous concert in Kunststation St. Peter in Cologne

Shackle performed a concert in Dominik Süsteck's lunch series on June 4 in the mesmerizing Sankt Peter in Cologne. Anne La Berge performed a great version of my composition Untitled For Anne, Shackle did another Affair with organ player Michael Bonaventure performing Anne's composition Dakota, and Michael finished it off by a marvellous rendition of his piece Sanctuary. We had a great, but slightly weird, time.
