The music of the Katabatic Wind composed by Magic Pocket and recorded in just two days, with only a few hours practice in advance. The cold and deep brass instruments finds their natural contrast in the electronic sounds in Qvenild and drummer Erik Nylander is a master at navigating between with his camouflaged grooves. We found the right atmosphere in Athletic Sound in Halden, with legendary Kai Andersen at the controls. The sound is warm, natural because everything is recorded live and on tape. Bob Katz (U.S.) has been responsible for the mastering, Mats Stenslet for cover design, and it is published by Bolage, who gets more and more attention for their focus on quality.
