about

«Before the Storm» features four original compositions by Nakama’s leader Christian Meaas Svendsen. The album is the group’s first recording, and can be summed up as an investigation of sound related to silence through a minimalistic approach to both written and improvised material. The pieces are four attempts to define the nature of what we normally define as silence, and presents at the same time a musical idiom of a band that operates on the outside of conventional borders.

The Japanese kanji on the front reads "Nakama" and "Arashi no mae", the second meaning "Before the Storm".
