Shackle Affair with Phil Macguire and the Splendor Academy

by Anne on August 26, 2016

We took it upon ourselves 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 Anne spent the afternoon showing and experimenting and discussing with the participants including how to play and control sounds with the Kyma System using iPads.


Responses ranged from “What is this?” to “I want more of this!” and from “whoa” to “wow!“.
