“Myhr appears as one of the most interesting guitarists in the improvised music world”
“Streifenjunko knocked me out with their unassuming debut album,
delivering one of the most potent and original spins on free improvisation I’ve heard in years.”
Streifenjunko and Kim Myhr have had a strong presence on the Norwegian and European creative music scene for the past years. In September they will be doing a double tour of China to promote their two new CD releases on SOFA. This will be Streifenjunkos second release, and Kim Myhr’s first release in solo.
Streifenjunko make vigorous music with the rare instrumentation of tenor saxophone and trumpet. Espen Reinertsen and Eivind Lønning apply uncommon instrumental techniques to project a spacious sound with nothing else around. They have worked closely together for a long time to present a truly unique repertoire, but have also collaborated with renowned musicians like Keith Rowe, Tetuzi Akiyama, Toshi Nakamura, Jim Denley, Christian Wallumrød, Sidsel Endresen and video artist Kjell Bjørgeengen.
Kim Myhr has performed extensively around the world the last few years, in solo, with his trio MURAL (with Jim Denley and Ingar Zach), and with his orchestra project “Stems and Cages” (where both of the Streifenjunkos are featured). The orchestra performed at the Victoriaville festival in Canada in 2010, and was by much of the press hailed as the festivals highlight.With MURAL he released Live at the Rothko Chapel in 2011 to wide critical acclaim.
