Notes from the Composer:
Catalog ek112 - The Handsaw

The Handsaw (1991). I composed this in Ransäter in Sweden, which is probably the world's largest accordion festival with over 100,000 visitors / camper for a week.

One early morning, I heard a sawing rhythmic sound from the dance floor outside the house I stayed in. Curious, I dressed and walked toward the sound.

On the dance floor was a carpenter and sawn plank. The performer the night before, had split the floor in a violent Hambo Dance. The carpenters rhythmic movement and swinging sound gave me the inspiration for the composition, The Handsaw.
