Robert van Heumen and I as Shackle hosted two duos to a full day in Amsterdam on 25 March.
They have very long names:
Of an implacable subtraction
with bassoonist/composer Dana Jessen and composer/performer Paula Mathussen
Architeuthis Walks on Land
with bassoonist/composer Katherine Young and violist/improviser Amy Cimini
Both duos presented their work and themselves at the Conservatory of Amsterdam and then played with and without Shackle in a diverse and marvelous concert at Splendor Amsterdam.
Oh how I wish they all lived in my town and I could play with them more than once in a blue moon.
