mastcutters by natalia kamia and haruhiko okabe

Album Description

Released:September 6th, 2017

the title of the album comes from the name of the church, located on heights close to the neighborhood where the recordings were made, masthuggskyrkan. it is a bad translation from swedish: hugga means cut or fell trees – for making masts. the area was known for its workshops, thus the name of the church. and sweden is rich in timber.


all tracks are unedited free improvisations, except two, which are layered with a field recording of the rain (initially it was supposed to be an outdoor concert, but the weather was unkind), alt some kitchen clutter, everything played and recorded at natalia’s place.
