Kim Myhr (born 1981) is an active voice on the Norwegian creative music scene, with regular performances across Europe, Australia, Asia and America.
In 2008, he received the JazZtipend at the Molde International Jazz Festival. The prize included a commission for Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, a large ensemble consisting of thirteen handpicked improvisers from Norway and Australia, featuring Sidsel Endresen, Clare Cooper, Jim Denley and Christian Wallumrød among others. The one-hour piece, which was later released on CD entitled «stems and cages», recieved wide critical acclaim.
Although composition is a valued activity for Myhr, his main focus remains improvisation and long-term collaborations. MURAL, a trio with Jim Denley and Ingar Zach, released Nectars of Emergence on SOFA in january 2010, and will release a concert from the Rothko Chapel done in march 2010, on Rothko Chapel Publications in august 2011. Other projects include Silencers (with Benoit Delbecq, Nils Ostendorf and Toma Gouband), Time Art Ensemble (with Michel Doneda, Matthias Muche and Sven Hahne), murmur (with Klaus Holm, Martin Taxt and Tor Haugerud) and duos with Sebastien Roux, Nils Ostendorf and Jim Denley. Myhr's first solo recording will be out on SOFA at the beginning of 2012.
In addition to making music, Kim Myhr is also the director of the Fri Resonans festival, which has been presenting cutting-edge and innovative music in Trondheim, Norway since 2005. He is also co-running the record label SOFA.
