When guitarist, improviser and composer Kim Myhr had an opportunity to collaborate with the never-stagnant Trondheim Jazz Orchestra for the second time, he invited Jenny Hval to join him. He had known her for several years and had wanted for a long time to work together with her.
Together, Kim and Jenny have created the music that became the work “In the End His Voice Will Be the Sound of Paper” – a title that materialised during a conversation about Bob Dylan’s aging voice. The work premiered at the Ultima Oslo Contemporary Music Festival in 2012, and was then described as a musical combination of improvisation, contemporary Feldmanian music, pop and the spoken word. The form of the music is fascinating – like a wind that suddenly arises and builds up a song before vanishing again just as swiftly and naturally. The album version was recorded at Rainbow Studio in Oslo in August 2014, and was later mixed at Amper Tone Studio with technician Jonny Skalleberg. This is powerful music that has the necessary backbone and is eloquently moving at the same time. This is music that richly rewards the listener who can focus keenly on it.
