    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.

    Due to the cancellation of his European tour Ben LaMar Gay will not perform at the 64th Ljubljana Jazz Festival.
