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 Stick Video-tape concert

by Robert on May 8, 2012

On May 8 Shackle celebrated reaching the $5000 goal in our Kickstarter project to realize the Shackle Stick. This Shackle Affair installment featured saxophone player Yedo Gibson. For Yedo a special version of the Shackle System interface was created, being shown to him on an lcd screen. The concert was filmed to create a videoclip to put on the Shackle Stick. The video can be seen here.

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.
