Kim Myhr

Sympathetic Magic

Past events:

​A visionary in massive format.

The Norwegian guitarist and composer Kim Myhr has performed solo concerts all around the world. Last year saw the release of the album Sympathetic Magic, which is on an even larger scale than Myhr's previous albums. Myhr worked on the album with just one musician at a time during the pandemic.

'All this positive, joyful energy felt completely magical as it appeared from nothing in an otherwise dark situation. It all felt like a hallucination which went back into the music. Sympathetic Magic is like a dream within a dream,' writes Myhr.

His soundscape is somewhere between jazz, improvisation, alternative rock and contemporary music. For his previous releases, Myhr was nominated for the Nordic Music Prize and Spellemann (Norwegian Grammies).

Myhr is currently touring with his latest material, where a star team of eight musicians play an array of instruments such as electric 12-string guitars, drum machines, vocals, synthesisers, drums, percussion and organ.

'Kim Myhr is a master of slow-morphing rhythms and sun-dappled textures that seem to glow from the inside.' – THE GUARDIAN
