MURAL is a trio consisting of Australian windplayer Jim Denley with Norwegians Kim Myhr and Ingar Zach. They have performed since 2007 and released the critically acclaimed "Nectars of Emergence" on SOFA in januar 2010. MURAL is a transparent orchestra, aiming for clarity and precision unafraid of static patterns they may encounter in the flux. There are chords, melodies and rhythms but hopefully free of clichéd systems. This is music that is constantly coming-into-being and never predictable in what it will discover. The group performed at the Rothko Chapel in Houston, Texas in march 2010, a concert which was recorded by Ryan Edwards. In August 2011 the group will return to the chapel for the release of MURAL Live at the Rothko Chapel, to be released on Rothko Chapel Publications.

Jim Denley is Australia’s foremost improviser with a career spanning over three decades. An emphasis on spontaneity, site-specific work and collaboration has been central to his work. He sees no clear distinctions between his roles 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; to establish it’s relevance to ancient and current traditions in Australian music, and to extend it's range with the addition of innovative electronics and miking.

Kim Myhr (born 1981) is among the most active of the younger generation of improvisers in Norway, with regular performances in Europe, Australia, Asia and America. In 2008, he received the JazZtipend at the Molde International Jazz Festival. The prize included a commission for Trondheim Jazz Orchestra, a large ensemble consisting of thirteen handpicked improvisers from Norway and Australia, featuring Sidsel Endresen, Clare Cooper, Jim Denley and Christian Wallumrød among others. The one-hour piece, which was later released on CD entitled «stems and cages», recieved wide critical acclaim. In addition to making music, Kim Myhr is also the co-director of the Fri Resonans festival, which has been presenting cutting-edge and innovative music in Trondheim, Norway since 2005. He is also co-running the record label SOFA.

Ingar Zach is one of the leading percussionists/improvisers from Norway. He is known for the wide range of sounds in his drum kit and he uses his percussion in a very dynamic but still energetic way. Now living in Madrid, he concentrates on his solo work and his regular ensembles.He has been dedicated to experimental music and folk music for the last five years and he is now touring and recording with his regular ensembles but in Europe, Canada, USA, South America and Asia.He founded the Norwegian label for improvised music, SOFA, together with guitar player, Ivar Grydeland in May 2000 and the SILLÓN label in 2005.
