About the album
Hopscotch - a unique international meeting of competent immigrants. We’re happy and proud to present the debut album of this Italian/Danish/Canadian trio.
The course consists of 10 carefully selected recordings of original compositions written by members of the group: Fabulating melodies and improvisations, open space with room for timbre and nuances, straight up with an edge and much more.
Hopscotch is a musical playground where composed and improvised ideas with aim and purpose are investigated and unfolded. The squares and bases are drawn by equal scotch-hoppers with a passion for consequence and rye bread. Hopscotch jumps - on one or two feet - from one musical space to another with focus on equilibrium and the shared marker.
The music is recorded in one big room with use of ribbon microphones to obtain a rich and warm group-sound. As in a concert.
Hopscotch comes in the original Arigato Pak made from 100% recycled chipboard - no adhesives.
