Takahashi’s Shellfish Concern

Takahashi’s Shellfish Concern combines abstract expressionist visual art with experimental electronic-acoustic music to accentuate the similarities of both during improvised exchanges. Angela Guytonand and Rodrigo Constanzo create a new event that requires the audience to consider this merger of music and art as a single expression.

The concept for Takahashi’s Shellfish Concern took shape in early 2006 back in their hometown, Miami, Florida. Rodrigo and Angelahad both worked along similar lines in Failure, Arc of Beauty, and continued their collaboration after the group’s dissolution in 2006.

Now based in Manchester England, Takahashi’s Shellfish Concern is performing with musician Anton Hunter across the UK.
