Shackle Affair and the Splendor Academy

Shackle took it upon themselves to give a group of classical musicians who were attending the Splendor Academy the chance to have hands-on experience with electro-acoustic music making.

With Phil Macguire as our guest, we gave a concert in De Ruimte in Amsterdam North with the participants of the Academy.

Phil and I spent the afternoon showing and experimenting and discussing with the participants.
I built some sounds with the Kyma System that they could all control from iPads.


Responses ranged from “What is this?” to “I want more of this!” and from “woah” to “wow!”
Robert van Heumen joined us for the concert
