Description

In 2014, guitarist Kim Myhr released the critically acclaimed solo record 'All Your Limbs Singing' (SOFA); an orchestral exploration of the 12-string guitar sounding like something in between American folk strumming and 60s avant-garde soundmass orchestral music. On the solo album 'Bloom' he takes his music in a new and more electronic direction. In recent years, Kim Myhr has been one of the leading voices on the experimental scene in Norway as both a composer and a guitarist. 'In The End His Voice Will Be The Sound Of Paper' - the collaborative album Kim Myhr released together with Trondheim Jazz Orchestra and Jenny Hval earlier this year, was described by the Quietus as "an arresting piece of work", and by Slug Magazine as "a grotesquely beautiful paradox of sound, pleasing to the last". On the surface 'Bloom' is quite different from its predecessor: there´s lots of overdubs, electric guitars, electronics and some acoustic guitars too. Generosity is maybe a keyword; both in the album's sound, the composition process, as well as in the sources of inspiration: Myhr is an active composer, and writes for chamber ensembles, electroacoustic settings and various theatrical projects. He is also a member of the MURAL (Ingar Zach, Jim Denley) and Circadia (David Stackenäs, Joe Williamson, Tony Buck). Kim has collaborated with Sidsel Endresen, Sebastian Roux, Lasse Marhaug to mention just a few.
