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.
Shackle Affair is Shackle‘s extension into working with guestplayers, extending Shackle into trio constellations. Guests can be musicians, but also visual artists or other performers. At the same time Shackle Affair is also about further developing the Shackle System to use in Shackle’s concerts and in their Converging Objects workshops.
Tonight’s guest is Luc van Weelden aka Peter Quistgard…
…traded a painting for an accordion.
…TI FEMME plays solo but also in collaborations with DAGORA (Amsterdam improv/noise outfit), as a vocalist for SOFT IS (new Amsterdam/Utrecht/Den Haag improv psych-rock), and in the past has performed/recorded with various folks such as Anna Vo, Thale Roosien, Wouter Jaspers…
The REAL TI FEMME was Haitian woman of the same nickname & one of the first fully documented cases (by a western doctor) of zombification.
