High Energy Electro Acoustic Afternoon: collecting sounds of years past and forging textures of tomorrow
A Shackle Affair is a concert where guest musicians join Shackle in playing with the Shackle System.
The Popebama duo will open the concert and then join in the Shackle Affair for the second half.
Following St. Peter’s veneration in 33, Popebama formed 2000 years later in a swarm of warm honey and wooden harmonicas, collecting sounds of years past and forging textures of tomorrow. Erin Rogers on saxophones and Dennis Sullivan on percussion, both NYC-based composer-performers, apply text, electronics, and high-energy instrumental writing through virtuosic execution of non-traditional sounds.

Shackle is Anne La Berge on flute and electronics and Robert van Heumen on laptop-instrument.
Shackles performances explode the line between improvisation without borders and tightly controlled forms that are both playful and daring. With uncanny transitions that turn on a dime and long, spun-out tapestries of sound, Shackles music works on many levels all at once.

Composition KP6-3.7 (revised version) for the Utopa Baroque Organ at Orgelpark484Location: Orgelpark, Gerard Brandtstraat 26, 1054 JK Amsterdam
KP6-3.7 (9’06" revised version)
for digitally enhanced Baroque organ, monophonic analog synth and live electronics
by Robert van Heumen
The music of KP6-3.7 is a process, a journey and a continuation of the ideas developed for the piece First Law of Kipple composed for the Sauer organ. Using existing material from different media, morphing it unrecognizable, I try to pay homage to my inspirations and at the same time create something entirely new. The new Baroque Organ inspired me to develop my ideas for a hyper-organ into new areas, combining sampled material, analog synthesizer and processed field-recordings with the traditional organ sound to create an instrument that unites the acoustic and the electronic into a whole.
