    In 2017, Norwegian experimental guitarist Kim Myhr released the album You | Me. It won widespread praise from the international press, including BBC Late Junction, Mojo, and The Guardian. A critic for The Guardian wrote that Kim Myhr “is a master of slow-morphing rhythms and sun-dappled textures that seem to glow from the inside,” and found parallels to his music in both the 1960s psych-folk vibe and works by minimalist composers such as Steve Reich, Terry Riley or Julius Eastman.
    The work was also nominated for the Nordic Music Prize. Its follow-up, Sympathetic Magic, is scheduled for release this August on Hubro. The new album was written during last year's lockdown and is a tribute to collective rituals and gatherings. According to the composer himself, it is his most ambitious and personal music to date.
