Finnish guitarist Lauri Hyvärinen is known to our listeners for his participation in Horst Quartet's Edged Timbre released by Intonema in 2017. His work on the solo album Cut Contexts was carried out in 2020-2021, when musicians suddenly had a lot of time for studio work. This prompted Hyvärinen to listen and select the recordings of previous years and, on their basis, create 5 pieces, each one clocking in at 7 minutes. The result is an unpredictable and varied album, in which deliberate instrumental impulses coexist with coincidentally occurring environmental sounds, at the same time obeying the will of the composer and directing his thought. On one hand, this is a collage technique, due to which there are unexpected twists in the music. On the other hand, this is extremely focused guitar playing in a minimalistic manner. On the third hand, these are field recordings, attuning to attentive listening.
