Kim Hiorthoy Vinyl, CD & tapes from this artist at Norman Records
Musician, designer and illustrator Kim Hiorthøy is surely best known for the visual presentation of every one of Norwegian jazz/experimental titan Rune Grammofon’s releases to date. That’s two hundred by now. There’ve been couple of collections of Hiorthøy’s designs over the years, but with the label now at its twentieth anniversary this book is by far the most voluminous and comprehensive to date. Accompanied by a 7” of exclusive tunes by Fire! Orchestra, Maja Ratkje and The Last Hurrah! & Nora Zheng.

Kim Hiorthøy likes to play in hybrids, mixing together the ingredients of any and all genres into his solution of experimental IDM. Where this was especially true of past records, though, 'Dogs' sees him take a starkly minimal approach, taking to the electronica standards: a steady beat, shimmering ambient sounds, receding piano notes and little more. Simple and sweet.
