"while it's warm, a collaboration between Leo Okagawa and Ayami Suzuki is a slow and careful mix of electronics, vocal, guitar, and field recording from everyday life.
Rain, humming, sounds from an open window, steps, electronic interference; all woven together as in a veiled texture, not unlike our memories, they too eventually become veiled.
As diarists, Okagawa and Suzuki share their everyday sounds and invite the listener into something close and mundane. They reconstruct, and mix their stories into 6 subtle, poetic and melancholic soundworks, where the ordinary is given attention.
while it's warm is presented on cassette in a handmade envelope together with three still prints from one of Suzuki's video work.
