Christian Winther

Overview

Christian Winther has been making his mark as a guitarist and vocalist on several records for a decade now, so in some ways The Clearing is no debut. Based in Oslo, he is known either through the experimental trios Monkey Plot and Ich Bin N!ntendo, the jazz collective Torg and the alternative pop duo Listen to Girl.

Though very varied in style, it is clear that Winther is drawn to the almost "al dente" form of music – the beauty that lies within the shaping of the idea, the sort of pre-idea. He is one of Norways clearest examples of an anti-guitarist, as he sort of rejects the many clammy expectations that come with the instrument. This is something often found both in the alternative rock-scene and improv-scene, but with Winther the contrary is connected with a genuine desire to find the beautiful moment, the shimmering harmony.

Although noise and experimentation is part of the picture, the influence of Brazilian music or the way the guitar somehow found a new melodic balance in the 90s Chicago scene, seems just as strong.
