Jim Denley, one of Australia’s foremost improvisers and innovative young guitarist Kim Myhr (Norway) met in Sydney in early 2007 and recorded an impressive CD of experimental duo music for acoustic guitar and alto-saxophone/flute – Systems Realignment – six months later. Since then the duo has done numerous concerts in Europe and Australia. Their music is not only a completely new take on guitar/saxophone combinations, but an attempt to rethink their fundamental musical methodology, embracing elements from a vast range of sources ranging form traditional to contemporary and electronic music. The result is a lush and surprising flurry of acoustic, electronic and mechanical gestures.
With a career spanning over three decades, Jim Denley is renowned for spontaneity, site-specific work and collaboration as instrumentalist, improviser and composer. He was recently awarded a Fellowship by the Australia Council for 2006 + 07 and is currently working towards a paradigm shift in the notion and perception of the saxophone.
Kim Myhr has a vivid and fresh approach to acoustic guitar, with an emphasis on a wide range of percussive, harmonic and timbral effects. He has embarked on an international career with performances throughout Europe, USA, Canada, Australia and Japan, working on a range of projects and collaborations.
