descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Juxtaposition is a studio work of four Oslo based improvisers recorded in the spring of 2016. Various timbres of opposite extremes - as a result of each musicians' different approach and background - coexist without hierarchical restrictions. Having that in mind, the mixing process played a crucial role to deliver a concrete body of equalitarian sonic output. Without compromise, these moments of joy and pain, screams, feedback and bird sounds are layered on top of each, creating a non-hierarchical, juxtaposed mesh of both organic, generated and pre-recorded sounds."-Nakama
