In the fall of 2006, Knud Odde was invited to Hjortdal in Hanherred to record music. This location on the northwest coast of Denmark is known for its hard wind and roaring waves.

On the singles you will hear 3 musicians who meet for the first time in a barn - equipped with musical instruments, coversongs, sketches - a starting point for music.

Fabulous Gramophone insists on recording principles, where the musicians work around one microphone. This makes editing out mistakes impossible, which was tough for Knud who is not used to stand out as a singer. This, combined with the uncertainty of the goal, made for some challenging days that were also fun and sometimes really crazy - the musically strong moments took us by suprise.

These are the moments that we now communicate through 3 A and B-sides.


The box will be presented at the opening of Knud Oddes exhibition in Berlin 11. May. More details at PRAXIS HAGEN The music and the artwork are pressed in a limited 500 copies. Which will be sold at PRAXIS HAGEN from 11. May - 7. June 2007.
