Together, sounduk, Beaford Arts and Arts at Dartington have commissioned Devon and Berlin based artists Shackleton + Vengeance Tenfold to create and record a ‘Sonic Journey’ in response to and inspired by sections of two train lines – part of the main line between Exeter and Totnes, and a section of the Tarka Line between Exeter and Barnstaple.

You will be able to download this audio track to your mp3 player and then embark on the same train journeys, experiencing the music on your headphones while moving through the landscape that inspired it.

Shackleton + Vengeance Tenfold

After his first release in 2004 on Mordant Music - a leading leftfield label renowned for atmospheric ambience and electronica - Sam Shackleton became a leading figure in the rapidly evolving underground electronic music scene through his West Country/London partnership 'Skull Disco'.

Shackleton moved to Berlin in 2009 and since then 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. Shackleton's evolving sound has won him wide-ranging recognition and a world tour taking in major cities in Australia, USA, China, Japan and Canada. Now this internationally influential artist is returning both to the West Country and his original musical partner, spoken word artist Earl Fontainelle, aka Vengeance Tenfold.

Dartmoor-based Earl most recently worked with Shackleton on a performance alongside the Tom Dale Dance Company involving spoken word and live electronic music.

Sonic Journeys is conceived and produced by sounduk /
