liisring A mesmerizing microcosmos. This album is like a travel through all these wonderful places, reshaped and reimagined in one's own head...like a hommage to the act of listening to the world with ears wide open. <3 Favorite track: Jordan.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

Lint assembles field recordings, fragments of song, textures, loops, lo-fi electronics into dusty but always-sunlit collages. The album, composed, recorded and produced by Myhre and mastered by Lasse Marhaug, is a diary and scrapbook in sound, a window into the artist’s world, at once extraordinarily intimate and open, unapologetic, inclusive.

---------------------------------------------------------------------

“The sound material of which this album is made, has been collected in the years between 2011 and 2016. I try to use my sound recorder in the same way I use a camera - capturing moments, not necessarily important moments, but allowing them to grow in the archive.

I think photographing and recording are quite similar in this aspect… With photography, the moment changes quite a lot over time, the photo being one version of it, the moment becoming something of its own. With a recording, however, I find that the nostalgia can be even more physical. The sound can completely throw me back into a past moment, like a smell. I would record small sketches for songs as well as my friends talking, bird calls, a bike ride, and from there I would compose with all of these.

Most of my song-writing (the working process) I guess is very immediate, the song either is or it isn’t. With “Lint”, I’ve been working with notions of memory, juxtaposing different moments to create new ones. Also: trying to listen to these recordings as just sound, removed from their original context. In that way, finding combinations that wouldn’t necessarily make sense in a thematic way, but it gives a strengthened form of listening, and it allows me to listen back in a less nostalgic way, more moving, ever-changing. Way back, I learnt that every time one tries to remember a detailed moment, the memory of that moment changes. So the more nostalgic I feel about something, and thus think about it, the further away it goes from what actually happened. I found it absolutely terrifying as a 20-year old, but now I guess I find it extraordinary that the past can be changed this way. I guess that’s what “Lint” is about - playing with memories, using them as tools for composing.”
