An interview with Jimi Tenor
CG: Being such an album, with the orchestra
and all, can we expect any live performances of the
material? Any plans for a tour?
JT: There are gigs. London 17.9, Barcelona
22.9, and maybe a Polish tour.
CG: Helsinki is the European City of
Culture this year. I was kind of hoping to see something
by Jimi Tenor among the festivities. I guess I was too
JT: Hmmmm... unfortunately Finland
doesn't seem to be ready for my symphonic style. It's
OK actually. So called classical music has too much
respect there to my taste anyway.
CG: Besides music you've been into
other creative stuff too... do you have any time left
for anything like photography and such these days, or
does your musical career take up all your time?
JT: Outside music my hobbies recently
have been watching Euro2000...
CG: I recently did a Jimi Tenor search on the net and
came up with some event at the Old Student House in
Helsinki back in 1995 which featured "Cheese covers
by Jimi Tenor"... what exactly was that about?
JT: I did small art pieces like those
winter landscapes in a glass full of liquid that you
turn upside down and artificial snow falls down. I had
pieces of cheese (those cheesetriangles in tinfoil)
in those domes. Some other stuff as well. Like a miniature
car. I also filled lightbulbs with golddust and sugarwater.
They looked nice when shaken... Very low profile art
CG: Finally a brief glimpse towards
the future: What next?
JT: I have several ideas about how
to do stuff. Maybe a big band thing...? Also were going
to make a TV show: Jimi Tenor show!
