Portable Sanctuary Vol. 3 offers a sparse yet rich sound-world constructed of Kikuchi’s invented metallophone instruments, amplified sawblades, and the brilliant violin work of Tom Swafford. Not available digitally, this direct lathe cut 7″ record is limited to 10 copies.


Portable Sanctuary is led by percussionist and composer Paul Kikuchi. With a rotating cast of collaborators, Kikuchi explores his interest in site-responsive improvisation, unconventional sound making devices, and the elasticity of time and space.
