The duo of David Shapiro and Ian McColm started playing together in 2010 as Nagual. In 2017 Stefan Christensen began to collaborate with them, which eventually led to Christensen joining the group. Shortly after the trio decided to change the name to Center. Since then they have released tapes on Sound Holes and Carbon Records, and have an upcoming LP on bruit direct disques. The group began by strictly playing electric guitars, with feedback as the main frame to work with. However they have grown to use a wide variety of instrumentations, both electric and acoustic. Shapiro plays solo as Alexander, in Headroom and accompanies Kath Bloom. McColm is more typically found playing drums; he plays in Heart Of The Ghost, has many collaborative projects, as well as solo. Christensen plays solo, as well as in Headroom and runs C/Site Recordings.
