Tetuzi Akiyama (guitar), Toshimaru Nakamura (no-input mixing board), Espen Reinertsen (saxophone & flute), Eivind L¿nning (trumpet), Martin Taxt (tuba). Selektiv hogst, meaning selection cutting, is a continuation of the music developed on the album Varianter av d¿de trær, released on SOFA in 2008. Since then, the quartet has performed numerous concerts in Japan and Europe, finding a particular way of making music together. 'Selektiv hogst' sees the former quartet of Tetuzi Akiyama, Martin Taxt, Eivind L¿nning and Espen Reinertsen joined by the no-input mixing board of Toshimaru Nakamura, who is adding yet another level of timbral ambiguity to the group, creating a rich ensemble sound. Akiyama and Nakamura have both long been two of the leading improvisers from the Tokyo scene, and L¿nning, Reinertsen and Taxt, are three young and active improvisers from Norway with an increasing reputation for their adventurous yet mature musicality.' label info
