Jomi Massage møder DR Big Band og Lars Møller, sammenfremfører de en rækkeskandinaviskeklagesange
JomiMassage meets the DR Big Band and Lars Møller, together they perform a number of Scandinavian Elegies
It starts with a wish to stir things up, to throw a couple of creative souls into each other’s arms, to smash some genre boundaries. From the realization that music always should be fed with new questions, so new conversations can flourish. From the idea that a conclusion is the place you reach when you cannot bother to think any further.
Liner notes, Christensen (2006)
Woman from Læsø, Dragtjournalen 3 (2008), p.120
Some people get associations to a burqa and some think it looks like a ghost costume. In the design itself I get recollections of 70’s children’s television. The point was that it should create some confusing signals, so you are not entirely sure who gets crossed.
Wille-Jørgensenquoted from FyhnChristensen (06.17.2006)
I had the burqa made because my songs have a slight political, accusatory touch […].I needed to make a stop and consider if the burqa might overshadow the message. I was afraid that it only would become a simplified provocation […].
Wille-Jørgensenquoted from AhnPedersen (2008)
Fear, and the division of image and music:
[…] with the atmosphere and the climate we currently have, images are too easily left standing alone and people look at them and judge on that basis. And I do not want, when I have made such a nuanced work, as I think I have, to let the image stand for itself.
Questions of self-censorship:
To me, this case [postponing the release of the cover] is not about pleasing anyone or about self-censorship. It is about taking this particular moment serious and find out how best to engage in dialogue, exactly so it will not become a two-sided war, so it will not become a war of cultures; where people are throwing different images of flags after one another… or burning them […]. I am doing it exactly because I feel this is how I can speak up and use my freedom of speech in the best way.
Wille-Jørgensen, interview inKulturnyt (DR, 2006)
Danish politics and the ”clash of cultures”:
[The images may] trouble sensitive Muslim souls. At the same time it mayalsotrouble sensitive Danish nationalist souls.
