Shena Tschofen is a multidisciplinary circus artist based in Montreal. Her powerful and unique Cyr wheel performances have been recognized for their “fluidity and grace.” She also performs acrobatic dance lasso and in various aerial roles. She is a 2016 graduate of the National Circus School in Montreal and is currently on tour with Cirque Éloize’s Saloon. Yes, she has dangled upside down off a four story building while playing the fiddle, and she is always up for new circus shenanigans.
When Will came to Montreal for three months, we decided to see what we could make together during his stay. Here are four tracks that we plotted out in our living rooms and recorded in a friend’s basement. As our album title says, we consider this our beta test product.
