|Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, Kim Myhr & Jenny Hval In The End His Voice Will Be The Sound Of Paper Limited Vinyl 2LP Set
2LP (45 rpm) with printed inner sleeves. When guitarist, improviser and composer Kim Myhr had an opportunity to collaborate with the Trondheim Jazz Orchestra for the second time, he invited singer/composer and Rune Grammofon recording artist, Jenny Hval to join him. The work premiered at the Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival in 2012, and was then described as a musical combination of improvisation, contemporary Feldmanian music, pop and the spoken word. The form of the music is fascinating - like a wind that suddenly arises and builds up a song before vanishing again just as swiftly and naturally. The album version was recorded at Rainbow Studio in Oslo in August 2014, and was later mixed at Amper Tone Studio with technician Jonny Skalleberg. This is powerful music that has the necessary backbone and is eloquently moving at the same time. This is music that richly rewards the listener who can focus keenly on it. Kim Myhr has been one of the leading voices on the experimental scene in Norway in recent years, as both a composer and a guitarist. He tours frequently in Europe, Australia, Asia and North and South America. On this occasion the unique Trondheim Jazz Orchestra is entirely acoustic, and is formed of 11 musicians with backgrounds in jazz, improvisational music and contemporary music who come from Norway, Wales and Australia, all of whom were hand-picked by Kim. In the past few years Jenny Hval has had an international breakthrough with the albums 'Apocalypse, girl' (Sacred Bones) in 2015 and "Innocence is Kinky" in 2013 (Rune Grammofon), the latter produced by John Parish.
