Mysterious musician from Denmark

During my last interview I met another interesting person. His stage name is Jimmy Biggs, originally he is from the Great Britain, and he moved to Denmark 3 years ago.

I met Jimmy because of “Y poetry club” in Aarhus, where he performed his songs. Also Jimmy is co – host in the club.

I met Jimmy several times, and he is the person who has a lot of different personalities, maybe like all of us. In the poetry club he is open and communicative; during interview he was calm and I had pleasure to hear his remarks with real English humor, but what surprised me the most how Jimmy was modest about his music despite of his obvious talents.

Researcher in musical analysis at Aarhus hospital

niels_christian_hansen_3_beskaerToday’s guest of my blog is Niels Christian Hansen. He is a PhD student at Department of Aesthetics and Communication at Aarhus University.

I contact Niels because I wanted to hear more about his interesting musical analysis studies.

Niels has always been a talented musician, so he was very happy when he got accepted to Music Conservatory in Aarhus to study classical piano, but during his studies he understood that he doesn’t want to be a musical teacher. So after bachelor’s he started to study more music theory, and also he got second master’s called “MSc in Music, Mind and Brain” in London at Goldsmiths University. Niels was interested to combine musical psychology and brain studies.

Meeting with volunteer bartend/doctor

On a grey Sunday afternoon I met Jesper for an interview near ”Atlas”, we decided to go to Botanic garden not far from it, we found very nice place on the grass near the lake, and Jesper told me his story. He works as a volunteer bartend.  He is 34 years old, and about 5 years ago he started doing volunteer jobs.  It started because of Jesper’s passion for music. Every month he attended 5-8 concerts. And it became to be a bit expensive, so he found great solution, he works at a nightclub and has opportunity to listen to all interesting concerts.

He does this job almost every weekend, it takes about 18-24 hours per month.  And during weekdays he has a normal job, he works at hospital.

Literature student/ west african music player from Aarhus

I was going to meet Aske mainly because off  his hobby, he wrote on his profile that he plays West Africa music and I was curious what kind of person  he is. To tell the truth, I expected  typical person who’s only passion in the world is music and  nothing else interest him in life. Well, like always, the world said to me not to make illusions and stereotypes  about another person just according to his web page. Because Aske appeared to be fantastic friendly, communicative, funny, one of the most  interesting  persons  I’ve met in Aarhus.  I discovered so much from him  just in one hour.3323_193313025003_364522_n

Aske is 25, he studies comparative literature at university,  that was great unexpected surprise for me. I was looking for his advice what to read from Danish authors, and he suggested one of the famous ones Karen Blixen (her alias is Isak Dinesen), I am looking forward now to read her “Seven gothic tales” and “Out of Africa”.

Also he advised to read works of Søren Kierkegaard, philosopher, poet and religious author. It is 200 years since the day he was born and in Denmark there are a lot of events dedicated to his memory.

The main topic of our conversation was, of course, music. He plays on special African drum called djembe. He got acquainted  with this instrument about 10 years ago on music lesson and since then try to improve his skills playing traditional West African music.
