Jimi Tenor’s playlist

Listen to a playlist Jimi Tenor did put together for LIFEM 2013. Includes some of his old favorites & sources for inspiration.



Jimi Tenor will be playing on 01 Nov 2013 at Kings Place, in London, as part of LIFEM: London International Festival of Exploratory Music. Also shown will be his documentary Sähkö The Movie (London Premiere). DO NOT MISS IT !!!!



Tenor’s music, along with his design and technical innovations, springs from experimental rock. During the 90s Tenor moved first towards electronic music, but soon got closer to his roots: 60s and 70s jazz, psychedelic soul and African funk.



”Jimi is my name, love is my game”

Kimmo Pohjonen interview

Kimmo Pohjonen’s Soundbreaker documentary will be exclusively shown on 31 Oct 13 at Kings Place, as part of LIFEM: London International Festival of Exploratory Music.

Breaking the rules, tampering with the bellows, adding electronic devices, sampling noises of animals and earth machines, he pushes sound to its extremes and shatters everything you know about the accordion. Kimmo Koskela tells the story with sparse words. His creative approach and breathtaking images give a deep understanding of the inner struggle of this exceptional artist and convey the spirit and feelings of a Scandinavian country. Music composed and performed by Kimmo Pohjonen, with Samuli Kosminen, Timo Kämäräinen, Sami Kuoppamäki, Trey Gunn & Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson) and Kronos Quartet.
