Kim Myhr: You | Me
Norwegian guitarist Kim Myhr joins the festival with a performance of his last solo record, You | me. Released in 2017 on the renowned jazz/improv label Hubro (focused on the scene in Norway), You | me is an immersive sound world in and of itself. Myhr’s shimmering, gentle playing style on the guitar is embellished with subtle percussive elements and electronics (Tony Buck, Ingar Zach and Hans Hulbækmo are guest musicians) and the result is a detailed, constantly shifting soundscape. Dense yet gentle, pulsating yet free-flowing, peaceful yet ecstatic… The essence of this record is so hard to capture that it could be labelled as free folk, post-minimalism or even post rock, and all of them would be true. A concert that could go unnoticed, but really, it’s unmissable.
