My Fantasy Band: Ketil Kinden, Endresen Casiokids
Composer - Mozart
What about doing a new requiem? 'Requiem 2'. I'm working on the Casiokids' accounts at the moment, and Mozart's requiem is my soundtrack. It makes me feel that however awful the job is, it could be worse, and there is something beautiful even in something as tedious as accounts.
Production/drum programming - Röyksopp
I've chosen them for their stunning production and danceable, quirky grooves.
Percussion - Airto Moreira
I love his work with Miles Davis on 'Bitches Brew'. He knows when to shine and when to be quiet.
Trumpet - Chet Baker
I find his tone comforting. Also, I think he will look good on stage with this group. Pre the heroin-addict look, I should add.
Double bass - Niels-Henning Ørsted Pedersen
I've listened to the vinyl version of 'Duo' so much that the sleeve is starting to fall apart. I love his simplicity and clear playing.
Vocals - Ladysmith Black Mambazo
I've chosen them for their work on Paul Simon's 'Graceland'. I hope this vocal group will add some new harmony ideas for whatever Mozart rustles up.
