MIDEM Music Spotlight" Kimmo Pohjonen
Kimmo Pohjonen Kluster/Ohimo
Artist: Kimmo Pohjonen Kluster
Genre: Extreme Accordion
Watch: Kimmo Pohjonen "Animator," Recorded live at Savoy Theatre, Helsinki, March 2004, Directed by Kimmo Koskela
The Come hear.Finland CD that I picked up at "MIDEM" continues to present music that I am challenged – and defied – to explain!
Finnish artist Kimmo Pohjonen's contribution to the CD is "Ohimo" off of the project named KLUSTER that he performed as part of a duo with sampler Samuli Kosminen. I could only find a 30 second sample of "Ohimo," which does no justice to the song.
More importantly, how does one communicate the music of Kimmo Pohjonen? Extreme accordion? Finish brilliance nudging Nordic madness?
You'll just have to visit Kimmo's website and watch this classically trained musician and performance artist via his videos to see and hear for yourself. Whether you connect to what he's doing or not, Kimmo delivers what is truly performance art.
The Come hear.Finland promotional CD is a partnership between MOKIA Nseries, Contra, d:centia, and Kuuko, with support from the Finnish Ministries of Trade and Industry, Education, Foreign Affairs, and the Finnish Cultural Foundation, the Finnish Performing Music Promotion Centre ESEK, and the Foundation for the Promotion of Finnish Music Luses. I obtained a copy at the Finnish Music Information Centre FIMIC booth.
