If you are lucky, you might be able find a sampler of
the Deutsche Grammophon ReComposed series containing
Jimi Tenor's interpretations of Steve Reich's Music
for Mallet Instruments, Voices and Organ.
"There will be an full album of
my remakes of 'classical' or concert music", says
Jimi. "I have made a lot of these but most of them
cannot be released because of the publishing rights.
Seems like most people in classical music are not very
open to any kind of manipulation of their music. Itīs
been a long project, but finally it seems we have found
enough open-minded publishers and composers that we
can release a full length CD. Steve Reich was great
to 'remake' because his music already has a pulse. Also
the lack of melodies leaves plenty of space for me to
slap my own ones on top."
Vol. 2 in the series, titled Deutsche
Grammophon ReComposed by Jimi Tenor, is expected to
be released early 2006. The first album in the series
by Matthias Arfmann.
