FIELD NOTES

Unique British bass producer Shackleton collaborated with his original musical partner, spoken word artist Vengeance Tenfold, to present his own distinctive vision of a journey through some very special parts of Devon; the main railway line between Exeter and Totnes, and part of the Tarka railway line between Exeter and Barnstaple.

Travelling from Exeter to Newton Abbot, in South Devon the artists respond to the iconic stretch of railway as the stopping train travels through the Exe estuary from Starcross station and journeys along the sea and wonderfully dramatic scenery.

Earl Fontainelle a.k.a. Vengeance Tenfold lives on Dartmoor in Devon. He plays in the Amsterdam-based Cajun deathcountry band Earl Fontainelle and the Pearl of Great Price and has worked in many other musical and lyrical projects, including a long-term collaborative relationship with Shackleton with whom he worked together on a live performance alongside the Tom Dale Dance Company involving spoken word, live electronic music, a Siberian Jew's harp, and a lantern.

Ending the label on a high point after only ten releases, Shackleton moved to Berlin in 2008 to further develop his distinctive musical style. Since then he has been in demand both as a producer – remixing work ranging from the 25-piece African collective Kasai Allstars to the famed 1976 collaboration between Brian Eno and German electronic group Harmonia – and as an artist in his own right. With 2010 releases ranging from new work on his own newly-establised label through to a coveted single-artist slot on the Fabric mix series, Shackleton's evolving sound has won him wide-ranging recognition.
