The Wire

The world's greatest print and online music magazine. Independent since 1982


Watch an excerpt from a film by German artist Strawalde, with soundtrack by Shackleton.

As Shackleton tells it, this collaboration with Strawalde (aka Juergen Boettcher) began when: "Boettcher turned up at my studio on his 78th birthday and announced that he had a present for us both. Previously I had made him a short mix of my more ambient stuff as he was really enthusiastic about the music after he attended a gig I played organised by his son Lucas. The present turned out to be the film of which you are watching an extract."
