    Chat que hizo Tuomas para su web oficial.

    Jueves 16/06

    * Tuomas: Hi all!

    * mojo: here we go .. room is closed.. and Agni_s is first .. gimme a sec

    Agni_s: hi

    * Tuomas: Hi!

    Agni_s: first of all I want to thank you for your time for us Smile

    * Tuomas: no worries mate(s)

    Agni_s: ok, my first question Smile

    Agni_s: When you met Carol and Sarah in Feb they gave you gifts from the forum members. One of theese gifts was a cd with 'The Bandit' soundtrack...I'm curious if you have listerned to it already and if yes, did you like it?

    * Tuomas: I had some cd`s yes... haven`t had a chance to listen to them, ashamed to say.. But have them upstairs safe and sound

    Agni_s: oh, so maybe you will see the movie as well Smile

    * Tuomas: maybe I will.. Thanks

    Agni_s: Have you got any vice that you would be glad to get rid of?

    * Tuomas: coffee 2 lites a day + cigarettes

    * Tuomas: Trying with the smokes as we speak..

    angelsoul: Hi, Tuomas!

    * Tuomas: Howdy!

    angelsoul: What would your perfect day look like?

    * Tuomas: A day at Disneyworld, winter time, not many tourists or not too hot.

    * Tuomas: I`d do Haunted Mansion 15 times

    angelsoul: Can you remember what was the first tune you learned?

    * Tuomas: Something out of the Aaron 1 - piano book

    * Tuomas: A simple folk tune or sth..


    angelsoul: What are your professional dreams and goals?

    * Tuomas: To make that perfect song and album. Will never happen but still trying.

    angelsoul: Never say never. (:

    angelsoul: If you had to choose a quote (or a line) to describe what motivates you day to day, what would it be?

    * Tuomas: The whole Song Of Myself from Walt Whitman.

    * Tuomas: And the classic of: "Carpe Diem".


    angelsoul: Nice.

    angelsoul: What has been your biggest professional challenge?

    * Tuomas: The year 2006.

    AnthonyB: Yet another "hi there" to you, Tuomas! As have been said before - thanks a bunch for taking the time to chat with us! Smile Okay, here is my first question:

    AnthonyB: How do you and Pip Williams work when you orchestrate the albums?

    * Tuomas: Talk to each other 5 times a day, exchange ideas etc.

    AnthonyB: Will there be a soundtrack album from the movie?

    * Tuomas: I write chord maps and basic melodies for him first
    AnthonyB: Ahh, okay! Smile

    * Tuomas: I`m pretty sure there will... sort of

    AnthonyB: Pretty much what you'd expect.

    AnthonyB: Have you had a chance to listen to my music, the one that Carol sent you from the competition? Judging from what you told Agni_s, I assume you haven't but I ask anyway! Smile

    * Tuomas: Gotta to give the same answer as to Agni_s... but have them.
    AnthonyB: Hehe Smile

    AnthonyB: In the winter, or next spring, I will start working on composing the music for an upcoming big budget game. It's my first large big budget project. Do you have any tips on how to work while on a tight deadline, without getting the infamous "writes block"?

    AnthonyB: hours of music to write, only months to do it!

    * Tuomas: Last minute panic is a great source of inspiration! ha!

    AnthonyB: haha

    AnthonyB: You know, I actually get that! Has happened to me a few times before!

    AnthonyB: As a game and film music composer, I find that most of the music I listen to is other peoples scores, from movies mostly. Do you listen to film scores much when you listen to music? If so, who is your favourit composer?

    * Tuomas: I always try to get rid of everything else, to be able to concentrate fully in one thing.

    AnthonyB: hehe

    AnthonyB: good advice!

    * Tuomas: Vangelis, Hans Zimmer, james Newton Howard

    AnthonyB: JNH

    AnthonyB: Nice

    AnthonyB: my favourite

    * Tuomas: Wow this is quick..

    * mojo: ciggie break ? Very Happy

    * mojo: nooooooooo! lol

    * Escapist: we warned you Razz

    * Tuomas: nope. no need, trying to quit
    * Escapist: good man

    avalon11: Hi Tuomas! how are you?

    * Tuomas: Fine thanks!

    avalon11: I'll fire away! Smile

    avalon11: If you were offered a once in a lifetime opportunity to live in a village like in "The Village", for the rest of your life, what would you answer be?

    * Tuomas: Aaaarrrggghhh, I would. I couldn`t. But I would! yes.

    avalon11: Lol!

    avalon11: good choice! Smile

    * Tuomas: I`d miss fantasy hockey and Finnish baseball league

    avalon11: you'd have to make up your own!

    * Tuomas: Yeah, why not

    avalon11: Where are you most at peace?

    * Tuomas: At home. Absolutely.

    avalon11: home is good Smile

    * Tuomas: Or hiking in Lapland

    avalon11: When writing lyrics, do you have to be in a certain place/mind-set for the words to flow?

    * Tuomas: Oh yes, that`s the most important thing! happy, sad, melancholic, hungover, pissed off whatever powerful.

    * Tuomas: Neutral and bored does nothing
    avalon11: emotions are powerful when it comes to creativity..definatley!

    avalon11: Have you ever considered releasing a book of just your lyrics?

    * Tuomas: Not really, I find the idea a bit boring..
    Cathy: Hey tuomas Smile

    * Tuomas: hey hey!

    Cathy: dont know if you remember but In the 2008 nightmail, you said that you were looking through your old notebooks from the AFF- oceanborn- wishmaster era

    Cathy: so my question is did you end up including some of those old themes and ideas in the next album?

    * Tuomas: yeah...

    * Tuomas: One riff (c-part of song #5) and some lyric bits, yes! Long live recycling.

    Cathy: heh Smile

    Cathy: How do you manage to get some private space/ time to yourself when you’re on tour?

    * Tuomas: Hotel rooms are actually a wonderful invention! And separate bunks in the tour bus.

    Cathy: So I get the impression you’ve read quite a few fantasy books. If you could choose a fictional world to live it which would it be?

    * Tuomas: Duckburg, Moominvalley or Middle Earth

    Cathy: anywhere specific in middle earth?

    * Tuomas: The new Kingkiller Chronicles by Patrick Rothfuss is also unbelievably good!!!

    * Tuomas: Hobbition, definitely


    Cathy: ah Very Happy

    Cathy: finally could you recommend some places to visit in Finland that really captures the essence of what you like about the country?

    * Tuomas: I`m a man of peace, music and ale, that`s why
    CharlieIslander: hi Tuomas! Smile thank you very much for giving the time to talk to us!

    * Tuomas: Hi mate!

    CharlieIslander: First question, when writing a song, do you write the lyrics or the music first?

    * Tuomas: First always the idea/story, then the music, then final lyrics
    CharlieIslander: What is your least favourite Nightwish song?

    * Tuomas: That Nympho... something - thingy. But I`m getting old, I have love for all of my kids.

    CharlieIslander: hehe! If you had to choose between playing the keyboards and composing music, which would you choose?

    * Tuomas: Ouch... They soooo complement each other. If I had to choose with a poison spider on my arm, I`d choose composing.

    CharlieIslander: Besides the keyboards/piano, what is your favourite musical instrument?

    * Tuomas: I love french horn, harp, acoustic guitar...

    * Tuomas: And human voice


    ChemicalYoot: Hi Tuomas! Again, thanks for doing this! Smile

    * Tuomas: Hello!

    ChemicalYoot: First question Smile I love the part of Finlandia that you played as an intro during the last tour, would you say Sibelius and other classical composers had inspired you?

    * Tuomas: To some extent, yes. But I`m mostly inspired by film composers, they are contemporary classical composers

    * Tuomas: And we will keep Finlandia for next tour, too

    ChemicalYoot: Ah good! Smile When you're writing the music, do you come up with chords/melody/etc first?

    * Tuomas: It depends so much... For me the chords and melody always walk hand in hand, neither one "comes first". This is very important to make the melody work and interesting.

    ChemicalYoot: Other than Finnish and English, do you speak any other languages, even if just a little?

    * Tuomas: A little German and Swedish, studied them at school for some years
    ChemicalYoot: Cool Smile What’s the main difference between writing Finnish and English lyrics?

    *Tuomas: English is easier and much more "forgiving"


    Dark_Immortal: Hi Tuomas, again another thanks for coming here today! Smile

    * Tuomas: Hi hi!

    Dark_Immortal: First question: Do you ever plan to end Nightwish, or do you plan to continue the band for as long as possible?

    * Tuomas: As long as it feels good to do! No end in sight yet. Maybe one more album, maybe 10, don`t know

    Dark_Immortal: Originally Nightwish was going to be an acoustic band, do you think you would have been a success if you kept that idea?

    * Tuomas: I love not knowing stuff, haha. Ignorance is The bliss.

    Dark_Immortal: haha Smile

    Dark_Immortal: Do you ever write songs without the intention of recording them with Nightwish or other bands?

    * Tuomas: I have done some songs for other artists and projects than NW, but never really just "for fun".

    Dark_Immortal: If you had to pick a different name for Nightwish, what would it be?

    * Tuomas: Diabolical Eve Of The Nocturnal Holocaust In The Abyss Of Oblivion
    * mojo reads that twice

    * Escapist: hah, genius

    gless: Ohaio:)

    gless: Was this live chat Carols idea or your one?

    * Tuomas: Ho ho ho!

    * Tuomas: Carols

    gless: Smile

    gless: If you have an opportunity for live chat Carl Barks what would you ask him?

    * Tuomas: Is it cold there 6 feet under my dear master?

    gless: haha

    gless: nice one

    gless: You always tell that your songs are "born" from experiences in your life. What's the story behind Dead boy's poem?

    * Tuomas: Hatred towards oneself. The feeling of inadequacy.

    gless: What's the craziest thing you've ever done?

    * Tuomas: Form a "metal" band.

    gless: Imagine now that we can talk not just write. If I ask to sing or humming a song for us. And because it's only my imagination you say yes. Which song would it be?

    gless: thas was my last question:)

    * Tuomas: Pantera`s "WALK".

    gless: thanks:)

    Linza: Morjens, captain! Very Happy

    * Tuomas: Moroooo!!!

    Linza: One sunny April morning as I stepped off my M-train into town, I saw you at rautatieasema, chilling by the tracks with your posse and your very best STAY UP OFF ME face. Is it necessary that you roll 9 deep everywhere? Is anyone actually so rude as to bother you in public?

    * Tuomas: Nothing rude in bothering me in public. I enjoy a nice chat

    * Tuomas: But I hate the staring


    Linza: Helsinki is full of stare-y people.

    * Tuomas: And the "Hei Ville Valo you band is so fag!!!"

    Linza: Hahaha, celebrity heckling, they are doing it wrong.

    Linza: Too bad you would need a license for pepper spray.

    Linza: Tying back to rude things people do to celebrities, I wrote you a book back in 2008. It was a serious imposition, and I'm sorry I dropped 62 thousand words of foreign language text on you. You can lose it without feeling bad. Very Happy

    * Tuomas: Everything`s saved. really is. Just not organized

    Linza: That must take up a lot of room. Razz

    * Tuomas: I have a rather big storage room. It`s a nostalgia trip.
    Linza: Nostalgia trip... fire hazard... Very Happy

    Linza: Peace.

    * Tuomas: Peace hon

    solarsun: thanks mojo and Escapist Smile

    solarsun: Hello Tuomas thank you for giving so much back to your fans Smile

    * Tuomas: Thank you!

    solarsun: lol Have you ever been to Tokyo Disney land or sea?

    * Tuomas: Nope, Just Anaheim and Orlando ones.

    solarsun: I highly recommend them especially the Blustery day hunny pot ride:)

    * Tuomas: Ok, try to keep that in mind. Won`t stay there these days, though

    solarsun: No wait a few years perhaps Smile If offered an acting part in 'The Hobbit" and you had the time would you do it?

    * Tuomas: I would, of course! The director`s mistake, if you ask me.
    solarsun: haha Smile I read that you like Thai food, what is your most favourite Thai dish?

    * Tuomas: Tom Yam Kung

    solarsun: Thank you Smile

    soulwind: Hey hun glad to hear you are feeling well

    * Tuomas: Thanks!

    soulwind: I am not one for lots of questions and talking (please pick Carol up off the floor because she is laughing so much )

    soulwind: I would just like to say a thankyou for the nightwish songs over the years to alot of people they are special meanings

    * Tuomas: Soulwind? I`d prefer Breaking Wind. Wow, the wine just kicked in..

    soulwind: well share the wine!

    * Tuomas: Thanks dearie.

    soulwind: I do have one question tho.......... I get alot of insperation from nature when I go for walks do you ever get creative when out hiking?

    * Tuomas: Oh yes, that`s where all the big ideas come from! Outdoors, simplicity.
    soulwind: and thankyou for the signed photo that Carol gave to me ... it gave me courage and smiles through my treatment (ask carol)

    soulwind: anyway take care of yourself hun /hugs

    * Tuomas: You take good care dear!!

    TiggerGirl13: Greetings from the Deep South! I hereby salute you with ye olde anglers motto: Carp Diem! :-)

    * Tuomas: hahaa! Hello!

    * Tuomas: I love The thrashers.. Too bad they went to Winnipeg


    TiggerGirl13: Yeah, we are disappointed to lose them. Don't get me started on the lame team owners! Okay, so here's your MacGyver moment! You have a toothpick, some string and a wine glass - what do you do with it?

    * Tuomas: Drink the wineglass if its full, throw away the string and toothpick.

    TiggerGirl13: lol

    TiggerGirl13: Yep, wine's kicked in, aye? Okay, next.....How drunk would you have to be to be willing to play Baroque Hoedown from the Main Street Electrical Parade?

    *Tuomas: What`s that? i`d probably do it sober to the sounds of it.

    TiggerGirl13: It's from the old parade in Orlando. I think that parade was still running when you first went there. It moved to Tokyo for a while and has since moved back.

    TiggerGirl13: What do you admire most about Walt Disney?

    * Tuomas: Oh, ok. I admire his vision, persistence and innocence.wirtin: Hello! I’m Julia from Belarus. Tuomas, have you ever been in Belarus by the way?

    * Tuomas: Hey julia! Never been there. Yet.

    wirtin: Are you planning to come to Belarus with Imaginarium?

    * Tuomas: Nothing`s concrete yet with the touring except the 1st show, so...
    wirtin: I watched some videos where you played sax. I like it. Why did you prefer keyboard?

    * Tuomas: The keyboards is more versatile. i still like the sax!
    wirtin: Smile

    wirtin: I like the way you play keyboards too

    wirtin: I’m dancer and I have put my dances to Escapist and Nymphomaniac Fantasia songs into forum: (Link removed by mod- find her dances in creation area of forum) Have you ever watched them?Smile

    * Tuomas: Sorry, no. i find it embarrassing to visit my website. Very, very hard to explain, but that`s the way I feel things.

    wirtin: Sad

    wirtin: What makes you you?

    * Tuomas: The tender moment between my mom and dad.
    wirtin: What is your favourite movie which is based on a true story?

    * Tuomas: Wolf Creek. If only vaguely.
    wirtin: What's your plan for the weekend?

    Alika: cool

    Alika: 2. How did you know that you want to make a living of writing music?

    Alika: 4. When you’re on stage you seem very energetic, where do you get you energy from?

    Alika: niice gona try that one

    * Tuomas: I guess that`s the place where I can just get rid of all the demons

    * Tuomas: Audience is often pure energy


    Alika: thats intresting

    Alika: 8. What in your opinion makes a good performance?

    * Tuomas: Sincerity and mistakes.

    Benihime: Hello Tuomas, I'm Andreina from Venezuela. I hope you're good, thanks for being here and taking the time to share time with us.. We are all happy Smile

    * Tuomas: Hi! Happy here as well.

    Benihime: and nervous i think Smile

    * Tuomas: No need

    Benihime: Is there any chance NW could make an Acoustic version of some songs?

    * Tuomas: Sure, we`ve been talking about that a lot actually. I guess that`s a sure sign of getting old.

    * Tuomas: We are all big fans of acoustic stuff

    Benihime: That would be great Smile

    Benihime: Is there any place in the world you that you still don't know and that you would like to have a show there?

    Benihime: we would go to that show for sure Smile

    Benihime: You have plans of retirement at some point and have a calm life or you plan to keep working with Nightwish for a veeeery loong time? (That will make us veeeery happy) Very Happy

    * Tuomas: Love to be the 1st one to do that

    * Tuomas: We`ll continue NW as long as it feels comfortable for us all. Maybe 3 years, maybe 30

    Benihime: What is the thing that amaze you more about "The Escapist"? Maybe how Carol makes everyone behave? Smile

    * Tuomas: Unconditional effort.

    Benihime: Have you had time to read the book we gave you? Smile

    * Tuomas: I sure did. Fantastic. I listened to our new songs while reading it. Nearly gave me tears.

    CenturyChild breathes calmly...

    CenturyChild: I'll also introduce myself first. My name is Martin. I'm 17 years old from Norway. I feel very honoured and privilegded to be "talking" with you.

    * Tuomas: Hi Martin!

    CenturyChild: My first question is: How can you headbang so much without destroying your neck completely?

    * Tuomas: Practice, I suppose.. I always nearly break it if I do it without music, though. Something magical about music..

    CenturyChild: Awesome! Thanks.

    CenturyChild: Do you have any plans performing with a live symphony orchestra some time in the near future, toward the end of the Imaginarium tour for example?

    * Tuomas: I`d love to do it, but this idea has always fallen because of some reason. No promises, but at some point in the future, definitely!

    CenturyChild: I'll look forward to it!

    CenturyChild: What sort of books do you read other than fantasy?

    * Tuomas: Detective stories, lots of science and nature literature, comics...

    CenturyChild: Ah, great.

    CenturyChild: Can you mention a few places where you love to hike besides Kiilopää and the shoreline of northern Norway?

    * Tuomas: Karhunkierros, Lemmenjärvi

    CenturyChild: Thanks!

    CenturyChild: Last one. Which soundtracks would your 'Top 5 soundtracks' list consist of?

    * Tuomas: Lemmenjoki... Sorry

    CenturyChild: Smile

    * Tuomas: Gladiator, The Village, the Rock, Sleepy Hollow, Titanic... The list goes on forever

    CenturyChild: Thank you for your time!

    * Tuomas: Cheers, mate!

    Cynwise: Hi Tuomas. Thanks in advance for answering these questions. Smile Okay first, I was always curious to know: Is the ''Put to rest all that's not life, drink for beauty...'' line from Cadence of her Last Breath in any way inspired by the ''Drink from me and live forever'' tag line of the movie Interview with the Vampire?

    * Tuomas: Not actually... (great movie) It was heavily inspired from Walt Whitmans Song Of Myself

    Cynwise: Oh okay..nice to know Smile

    * Tuomas: Put to rest... is a quote from Thoreau

    Cynwise: what book(s) are you reading at the moment (or what was the last book you read)?

    * Tuomas: Wise Man`s Fear by Patrick Rothfuss. Sensational new fantasy epic!!! Now I`m reading a nature book about Finnish landscapes & food (not fiction)

    Cynwise: oh okay, I will check that out Very Happy

    Cynwise: I was very surprised when you said that you still get very nervous going on stage. It doesn't show at all - you look very confident when you're performing! Would you say you're a good actor?

    * Tuomas: Please do

    * Tuomas: I can`t act worth shit. But usually the nervousness mostly disappears the moment I step on stage. 5 mins before that I`m in my personal hell

    Cynwise: okay..so I know you like to travel a lot - but if you could live anywhere in the world for a year, where would you go?

    * Tuomas: Australia. Besides Finland, it`s my absolute favourite country in the world

    DaedraLord: *clapping, dancing and singing*

    DaedraLord: Hei Mr. Holopainen, or Tumoas if you prefer. My name is Ilias and i am from Greece. It's a great honor for me even to chat with you. So thank you for your time. I know it's really precious for you.

    DaedraLord: Would you ever give up composing or keyboards for something else now that you have a succeful career?

    * Tuomas: No prob, welcome!

    * Tuomas: No, composing is my only way to function as a human individual.


    DaedraLord: Any plans of singing again?

    * Tuomas: Corny but true

    * Tuomas: Not really, I just don`t enjoy singing.

    DaedraLord: I really love your voice in Carpenter

    DaedraLord: so i would like to listen to you again

    * Tuomas: Wow, thanks. I just don`t get it when people say that, I really don`t

    DaedraLord: What's the first thing you notice when composing a new song

    * Tuomas: I sound like a motor boat engine

    * Tuomas: The idea or the story! "What do I want to tell with this song?" That`s the most important thing.

    DaedraLord: thank you i was very curious about it

    DaedraLord: What's the source of your inspiration, music and lyrics, though all these years?

    * Tuomas: Personal experiences. My own dreams and wishes. People around me. Evil and goodness of the world. Love.

    DaedraLord: thank you for your time and(i know it's forbiten) Hyvaa iltapaivaa. I hope to see you live in Greece

    * Tuomas: Take good care!

    DaedraLord: i was witing for many to say something to you in finnish

    Ever_Dream: Hello, Tuomas! My name is Dessy and I`m from Bulgaria.

    * Tuomas: Hello Dessy!

    Ever_Dream: I`ve been thinking about what exactly I want to tell you and I believe it`s best to begin with thanking you. You`ve probably heard this a million times and perhaps it`s nothing new to you but I really want to let you know how much you`ve done for me, even though we`ve never met. Of course I can go on praising your music and lyrics and say how beautiful they a are but I love them because when I listen to your songs I feel like I become the music itself. Maybe you know the feeling – you`re lying down, for example, with your eyes closed, listening, and you suddenly realize that it`s like your soul has left your body, it has become the melody, the rhythm, the words. I hope you can understand because this sensation is

    * Tuomas: Thank you dearie! I try my best to keep it up, for you and for myself

    Ever_Dream: is difficult to describe. Your music inspires me, helps me relax, cheers me up, it`s there when I feel the worst. I really wanted to tell you all this, sorry for the long explanation, I know it sounds cheesy and corny. Very Happy

    Ever_Dream: sorry for all this

    * Tuomas: No worries!

    Ever_Dream: Very Happy

    * Tuomas: I`m flattered

    Ever_Dream: Have you heard of a musician called Loreena McKennitt? If yes, would you ever create a musical project with her?

    Ever_Dream: you probably haven`t her music is very... different

    * Tuomas: Yes I have. I like her, but maybe not go as far as collaborating.

    Ever_Dream: OK, thanks Very Happy

    Ever_Dream: 2. What inspired you to create the song Satojen merien nakija? Are there going to be any more songs with/for Johanna Kurkela (or any other artist) in the near future?

    * Tuomas: I enjoy doing stuff for other artists as well. Satojen merien näkijä is a song about dreams and rebirth

    Ever_Dream: It`s a lovely song!

    * Tuomas: Thanks.

    Ever_Dream: Is there a musician from the past and present you`d like to work with?

    Ever_Dream: or present"

    Ever_Dream: sorry, I`m really nervous...

    * Tuomas: Vangelis & Hans Zimmer, my music heroes.
    Ever_Dream: We are all asking you all these questions. Do you have anything to ask us?

    * Tuomas: When it comes to metal, Dimebag Darrell was the best there is.. RIP

    Ever_Dream: I`m breathing! lol

    * Tuomas: Yes, please breathe and take it cool?

    Fehythe: Hello, Tuomas, I am Stephanie from the USA. Thanks so much for your time, and thank you to mojo and Escapist as well. How are you this evening?

    * Tuomas: Fine, thanks! Lots of yardwork done and enjoying an evening with you great people

    Fehythe: Good to hear. Smile

    Fehythe: I am fairly new to knowing of Nightwish, but I have come to have a great appreciation for your music and lyrics. It has made a perfect soundtrack to the books I am working on. For the inspiration your music has made on these stories I have been working on, I would like to thank you as well.

    * Tuomas: Thank you for listening!


    Fehythe: Have you considered composing songs about your Finland, it's culture, and history? Perhaps along the lines (not exactly like of course) of how the band Falconer (highly recommended) does for Sweden?

    * Tuomas: I really have! But that`s a thing for the future.

    Fehythe: Great!

    Fehythe: Have you thought of making an album that is instrumental/orchestral only?

    * Tuomas: That too, yes. So much wondrous ideas and so few years to do it..

    Fehythe: What is your advice to any musicians/singers that might be struggling to get a band together or to get signed?

    * Tuomas: I really hope there is an afterlife

    Fehythe: Me too.

    * Tuomas: Keep honest, keep trying and believe in yourself. Cliche but true.

    Fehythe: Any news on any of your side projects? For My Pain, etc?

    * Tuomas: A little bit originality in any art never hurt anybody, too.

    Fehythe: All very good advice.

    Fehythe: Thank you so much for your time, Tuomas.

    * Tuomas: I`d love to do For My Pain again but everyone seems so busy / occupied with families etc. Maybe some day.

    * Tuomas: Thanks Fehythe!

    finnish_heart: Hi Tuomas, my name is Samira and it's a great pleasure to talk to a fellow keyboardist Smile

    * Tuomas: Hey there!

    finnish_heart: I'm very curious about this does it hurt to play long shows? like your wrist, arms, shoulder...

    * Tuomas: The neck only, at first. We never really do more than 1hours 45mins so it`s not that bad.

    * Tuomas: Headbanging..

    finnish_heart: my hand hurts a lot...

    finnish_heart: did you ever forgot any part of the music during a show?

    * Tuomas: God, so many times! But that what makes the show human and funny. Unless you completely screw it up.. You should never worry about mistakes!

    finnish_heart: haha I'll keep this in mind

    finnish_heart: are you gonna use the new Korg Kronos? or stick with oasys?

    * Tuomas: I just ordered Kronos. Will still use the sounds of OASYS, though.

    finnish_heart: so we'll have Kronos in the next album?

    * Tuomas: The next album is already ready, so for the one after that, I assume.

    finnish_heart: great

    finnish_heart: any chance of working with Apocalyptica guys at some time in the future?

    finnish_heart: would be fantastic

    * Tuomas: Maybe, nothing concrete has been planned. Would be a nice combo!

    finnish_heart: good

    finnish_heart: last one do you think a cover band is a good way to start in the music world?

    * Tuomas: Depends if it keeps you motivated enough. Didn`t do the trick for me.

    FluffyFaery: Hi tuomas, my name is Sophia And im from alaska.

    * Tuomas: Alaska, wow! Hell-o!

    FluffyFaery: *It’s obvious that the show in Los Angeles is going to be epic, and it would be amazing if ya’ll did a live recording, like they did for the End of an Era concert. Also, Annette has not had a concert dvd made with her in it. Is that in any way possible?

    * Tuomas: 1st show and a dvd is too much of a risk.. We haven`t played together in years.

    * Tuomas: Live, I mean


    FluffyFaery: ok thanks

    FluffyFaery: second question

    FluffyFaery: *Do you know when the other tour dates will be announced?

    * Tuomas: The guys are working with them as we speak. Shouldn`t be too much longer now.

    FluffyFaery: yay

    FluffyFaery: *Do your bracelets have any stories to go with them?

    * Tuomas: Some do, most of them are just crap I bought from Tiimari or sth

    FluffyFaery: ok

    FluffyFaery: *Have you ever straightened your hair? I bet it would look awesome!

    * Tuomas: Sometimes the barber did, but I like the hungover-troll-look a bit more.

    FluffyFaery: If you’ve listened to the music in America, which bands did you like?

    * Tuomas: Metallica, Pantera, Ozzy... The biggies. And many film music composers, too!

    * Tuomas: Garth Brooks! No joke.

    FluffyFaery: thanks tuomas

    * Tuomas: Thank you!

    JaneDoe: Hello, Tuomas, it's a great pleasure being chatting with you. I'm Ariana from Argentina. Thank you so much for this opportunity. Hope you're having fun here! Smile

    * Tuomas: Hi Ariana! Lovely name you have.

    JaneDoe: Thank you!

    JaneDoe: To what could you compare the experience of writing and recording Imaginarium?

    * Tuomas: To building a 300 meter - high cathedral to Mars

    JaneDoe: Hahahaha, nice!

    JaneDoe: If you could live in a movie, what would it be?

    * Tuomas: Beauty And The Beast or The Village.

    JaneDoe: Both beautiful Smile

    JaneDoe: With which other Nightwish album you would have liked to do a movie?

    * Tuomas: Angels Fall First. It would be a black and white comedy.

    JaneDoe: I will dream about that tonight..

    JaneDoe: Which of your favorite songs you wish you had written yourself?

    * Tuomas: Walking In The Air. The most beautiful song ever.

    JaneDoe: Very Happy

    JaneDoe: Makes me almost fly when i hear it

    JaneDoe: Did you ever have trouble expressing what you felt or thought, not necessarily to others?

    * Tuomas: Every day. that`s why I do what I do, I guess..

    JaneDoe: Wow, that's almost incredible

    JaneDoe: Thank you

    * Tuomas: Have a good one!

    Last_of_the_Wilds: Hello, Tuomas, my name is Marcela and I’m from Czech republic. Let me at first say a big Thank you for doing this. It means a lot for everyone one of us.Smile And I’d just add to DaedraLord, many people actually like your singing voice, so don’t be so shy about it Wink

    * Tuomas: Ha! Hi Marcela!

    Last_of_the_Wilds: You have many musical and artistical "heroes", whose music inspired you in your life and work and helped you emotionally. How does it feel, to know that you became something similar for a lot of people around the world and your music actually helps many people to survive the day? great music you write!:-) )

    * Tuomas: Makes me happier than anything. Gives me another reason. Thanks

    Last_of_the_Wilds: As a huge fan of Dragonlance series and Lord of the Rings I‘ve always wondered, who were your favourite characters here?

    * Tuomas: Tanis & Gollum.

    Last_of_the_Wilds: I lost my bet now Very Happy I thought you'll say Raistlin or Tasselhof Smile

    * Tuomas: Both awesome!! I have my reasons..

    Last_of_the_Wilds: ok:) Do you ever listen to Nightwish music in your free time? I don’t mean while making the album, but after, when you just want to relax.

    * Tuomas: I do not. I never really listen to them after we have finished an album.

    * Tuomas: just before thinking about the setlist I go over the back catalogue

    Last_of_the_Wilds: That's interesting. Smile Your work is heavily influenced by many books and poetry, and you seem to have read a lot of books – is there one great book you would like all the people in the world to read?

    * Tuomas: Yes! Song Of Myself by Walt Whitman! For me that`s what The Bible is to some people.

    Last_of_the_Wilds: I have that one, in original and my language too. Great book.Smile

    Last_of_the_Wilds: all right mojo:) Tuomas, thank you very much for your patience, you just made a little dream of mine come true:)

    * Tuomas: All best!

    Morbid_Dreamer: Thanks mojo! Hey Tuomas! My name’s Kerry and I’m from the ‘middle of nowhere’ USA! Wink Thank you for chatting with us this morning/evening!

    * Tuomas: Hey Kerry from nowhere!

    Morbid_Dreamer: And I want to also thank you for writing the lyrics and music that you do. It’s truly saved me from drowning in my own personal hell…Oh! And as to your earlier comment…You DO NOT sound like a motor boat engine! I so agree with Marcela on that topic!

    Morbid_Dreamer: first question - When you’re having a really bad day, how do you get yourself to feel better and does it help?

    * Tuomas: Someday I might buy that. But thanks

    * Tuomas: Physical exercise helps best. And solitude. And Donald Duck.


    Morbid_Dreamer: I'll have to remember Donald...Its also nice to see another big fan of the Snowman, btw! Smile What was the first movie that made a huge impact on your life?

    * Tuomas: Raiders Of The Lost Ark!! I was sth like 8 years old. My life`s been one big adventure ever since.

    Morbid_Dreamer: Very cool! Very Happy Is there any possibility that you guys are coming back to IL at any point? Like at the All-State Arena or something?

    * Tuomas: Let`s see what Mr. John Finberg comes up with..

    Morbid_Dreamer: Duly noted! Very Happy What was the first Disney movie you remember loving?

    * Tuomas: The Fox and the Hound.. Peter Pan.. Sleeping Beauty. One of those

    Morbid_Dreamer: Awesome choices! BatB was mine! Smile Ok me and my mom are extremely curious and have gotten into debates about this…Are you the one singing backup vocals on ‘While Your Lips are Still Red?’?

    * Tuomas: Nope, Marco does them all.

    Morbid_Dreamer: huh...didn't know that...

    Morbid_Dreamer: thank you tuomas!

    * Tuomas: Cheers!!

    muffy46: Hi Tuomas, my name is Marta, I’m 25 years old and I’m from Poland. Thank you so much for giving the opportunity to talk with you. It means a lot to me. This is very nice of you.

    * Tuomas: Hi Marta!

    muffy46: 1.I see that you like to experiment with very unusual instruments and sounds. Is there some instruments that you haven’t tried and you think that it would sound good and you want to use it in the future?

    muffy46: I mean on the album

    * Tuomas: Oh, there are hundreds of them still! I love dirty and weird ethnic sounds. A lot of those on Imaginarium

    muffy46: yes, I love them too

    muffy46: great that it will be a lot of it on Imaginarium, can't wait

    muffy46: 2.You are composing beautiful music and writing touching lyrics, so I think you have great scent of „words composition”. I sometimes write my own poetry and your music always is very inspiring to me. Have you ever thought about writing and publishing some poetry or maybe prose?

    * Tuomas: One song is basically nothing but ethnic instruments

    * Tuomas: I`m having ideas for a book of my own as we speak.. But that`s gonna take a few years


    muffy46: it's great idea

    muffy46: It will make us happy to read some of yours

    muffy46: If you were not a composer and musician, what other profession would you choose to practice?

    * Tuomas: Thanks, hopefully some day

    * Tuomas: Biologist or an adventurer!

    * Tuomas: Some sort of mad scientist anyway


    muffy46: wow, sounds great

    muffy46: cool Smile

    muffy46: 6.What’s the main purpose that you are aiming for in your life?

    * Tuomas: Happiness, Love and balance. For other people and myself.

    Nalon: Smile Thanks Mojo. Terve Tuomas. I´m Ricarda From Germany, Bochum. But i like it more if people called me Nalon;) ( Why? A long Story) Very very thank you for your time. I´m really nervouz that you are the 2nd NW member with them a talk/read (First was Marco, as he was in the Matrix with Tarot).

    * Tuomas: Hi Ricarda!

    * Tuomas: Oh, Nalon!

    * Tuomas: Entschuldigen sie, bitte.


    Nalon: I have a question about the next tour: Is there any chance to see "LORDI" as supporting act?

    Nalon: ^^ no problem Tuomas

    * Tuomas: Probably not.. Not the best combo I think, even though I like them

    Nalon: Smile ok and the next : Do you plan to use mediaval instruments in the future or for the next album?

    * Tuomas: There`s a lot of weird ethnic noise on Imaginarium! I hope you`ll enjoy it as much as we do.

    Nalon: Wink ok

    * Tuomas: True medieval... Possibly!

    Nalon: Do you have in your Disney collection the big Snow Goble (with music) and a Uncle Scrooge Moneybox?

    * Tuomas: I have 3 snow globes and 3 US moneyboxes

    Nalon: wow! I have loss my Uncle Scrooge Moneybox Sad

    Nalon: You've seen the movie "Joulutarina" A Christmas Story by Marco Leino?

    * Tuomas: It`s a classic

    * Tuomas: I have, yes. Wonderful scenery


    Nalon: I think is the best x-mas film ever.

    Nalon: Have you ever seen a musical in theatre live and if so which one? (cats)

    * Tuomas: After "The Snowman", of course. haha

    Nalon: Very Happy

    Nalon: Ok Kiitos Tuomas and mojo and cc

    * Tuomas: I saw Phantom of the opera and the Wicked. 1st was awesome, the second one not so

    * Tuomas: Take care Nalon!

    Rainborn: Hello Maestro! Here is Marian, Damian and Timon, we are from Berlin and have a Symphonic Metal band too called "Rainborn", we are really excited to talk to one of our biggest idols, without Nightwish we would have never started with listening metal, so you brought us to metal and made us produce this kind of music too!

    * Tuomas: Hi there everyone!

    Rainborn: Are there any unreleased ideas on the new album which you had years ago already or is everything completly new?

    * Tuomas: 98% is completely new but I did some recycling from the past. Some lyrical ideas and a couple of riffs

    Rainborn: Do you have an eye/ear on newcomer Symphonic Metal bands some times?

    * Tuomas: I`m ashamed of how little I follow the music scene these days...

    Rainborn: thats bad Sad

    Rainborn: What are the other band members doing at the moment?

    * Tuomas: Their own bands, vacations, taking care of families, etc.

    Rainborn: Nice Smile Will there be a song with only Marco singing on the new album?

    * Tuomas: There will.

    Rainborn: Awesome! YES YES YES! Very Happy

    Rainborn: Is your equipment going to change for the next tour?

    * Tuomas: A little bit, yes. I`d like to simplify things to some extent.

    Rainborn: Is he going to scream? That would be enought for us! Smile

    * Tuomas: He does his fair share of screaming, no worries.

    Rainborn: Thats good! Smile

    Rainborn: How often does Nightwish rehearse before a tour?

    * Tuomas: But he`s such a romantic... and getting old...

    * Tuomas: We rehearse a lot by ourselves, and then a few weeks together as a band


    Rainborn: Thanks very much for your time Tuomas! Tomorrow 2pm we have bandrehearsal if you have time just come over here and visit us, if you dont have time just come some other day you are always invited! Wink

    * Tuomas: waiting for the teleport to be invented.. Take good care! And best of luck to the band!!

    SannaH: Thanks mojo! Iltaa Tuomas, I'm Sandra, sitting in front of my Mac in Uusimaa and sending greetings to Kitee Smile

    * Tuomas: Thanks! Kitee greeting back.

    SannaH: The Zurna for Imaginarium - what was your inspiration to use that old turkish/arabic element? I own a arabian horse that's why I got VERY curious when I saw the studio picture.

    * Tuomas: Because the song needed that sound. It`s a scene in the film that originally gave me the idea for that particular song
    SannaH: Smile

    SannaH: Have you ever been on a horseback?

    * Tuomas: Once, in Levi. Wintertime horse riding safari. Beautiful and scary

    SannaH: Why scary?

    * Tuomas: Big things, and then the trotting.. I couldn`t hold on

    SannaH: You should give it another try Smile

    * Tuomas: Shire horses or sth..

    SannaH: I'll give you a word, could you please write what comes into your mind when reading it?

    * Tuomas: Ok

    SannaH: summer

    * Tuomas: Most boring season

    SannaH: Whip

    * Tuomas: Indiana Jones

    SannaH: Car

    * Tuomas: Necessary evil

    SannaH: Helsinki

    * Tuomas: Surprisingly beautiful place

    SannaH: Romance

    * Tuomas: What we are alive for

    SannaH: Art

    * Tuomas: Everything

    SannaH: Newspaper

    * Tuomas: Never really read them

    SannaH: Kiiti ja hyvää illan jatkoa sulle! Thank you, have a nice evening! And give it a try again!

    * Tuomas: Kiitos dearie!

    * Tuomas: I will


    Scapegoat: hei Tuomas, i am Mari, from near Oulu Smile and i was really truly surprised when Carol told me i can join this great chat,and i am truly an anti-nerd but learning all the time! Very Happy

    * Tuomas: Moi!

    Scapegoat: i have followed NW from the beginning, and want to thank you from my heart, for i wouldn't have survived all the difficulties life has given me without NW. (i am 29 so i'm not talking of anything small things..)

    * Tuomas: Join the club!

    * Tuomas: Thanks.


    Scapegoat: even in hardest darkest hopeless places there was always that rope to hang on, give the words and strenght to climb up. you've given a form to that beat and melody and craving that runs in my veins, so thank you again.

    * Tuomas: Making me wordless


    Scapegoat: Ghost Love Score is really important to me,i love it just a bit above the rest, for it is what i'd write if i could and had words Smile i know this is asked you many times, but do you have some of NW songs that is above others?

    * Tuomas: I like some more than others (Poet and Pendulum etc.) but all my kids are important to me. i`m old enough to admit it


    Scapegoat: once i was singing Swanheart (all those beautiful people, i want to have them all) and at one point realize i sang "hang them all" Very Happy have you ever had such an accident when some people are listening?

    Scapegoat: Very Happy

    Scapegoat: just for you to know, i love Walt Whitman, Hans Zimmer and Australia too:)

    * Tuomas: Haha! That`s great, I just wrote that mistakes are the best part of a show. makes it so much more humane

    * Tuomas: Nice trio!!


    Scapegoat: Very Happy

    Scapegoat: are you nervous about that film-project of yours? or actinc in it?

    * Tuomas: Not really nervous, just anxious to get it started. The acting - part will be a challenge.. Small part, luckily

    Scapegoat: or not Very Happy

    Scapegoat: have you learn something new about yourself during filmproject? what do you expect of it?

    * Tuomas: I`ve learned that my nerves last longer than I thought, and that makes me a bit proud

    Scapegoat: is the dreamer's hideaway an asylum? is the sweet ignorance the key?

    * Tuomas: Unbelievably difficult to realize this vision..

    Scapegoat: and which of these you'd like to be only one day if have a chance: a.Jack Sparrow b.Edward Scissorhand c. M. Night Shyamalan (his works i love, by the way)?

    Scapegoat: i truly wish you all the strenght and stamina that bronze claw i gave you represents Smile

    * Tuomas: Jack, absolutely. the one in the 1st part of the movies

    * Tuomas: Take good care country mate!


    ShinyFeather: Thanks Mojo Smile

    ShinyFeather: Hello, Tuomas. My name's Cristina, and I'm some crazy storywriter from Spa... let's just say I'm a girl from Spain Smile

    * Tuomas: hey there spanish lady!

    ShinyFeather: Now without joking, I'm very very glad to be here. First of all, I want to say thank you, for all you've done, for your works always make me dream... make me feel inspired for life... and give me a lot of strenght, too. Thank you again for sharing all these beautiful and wondrous visions with us. I'm talking honestly.

    * Tuomas: Thanks a million!

    ShinyFeather: Smile

    ShinyFeather: Something I'd like you to know is that I've started reading The Dark Tower series because of your recommendations. I had tried a story from Stephen King before and it was good at the end, but it also made me learn that it isn't a good idea to spend insomnia summer nights reading that alone in bed...! So I probably needed something to make me decide to try the author again Smile

    * Tuomas: Grrrrreat choice!!

    ShinyFeather: I like it so far, even if I just reached first book's third chapter yet. So thanks for that! Anyways, there is something that makes me curious... you know how Stephen King is.

    ShinyFeather: His books make you think about the darkest emotions and situations (I don't like much using this word to talk about this kind of things because "darkness" itself has another meaning to me, something more positive... but you'll understand), the most macabre thoughts about what we are, human beings... and suddenly, some beautiful thoughts, and some hilarious scenes that made me laugh hard a lot Smile

    ShinyFeather: I really wonder if this has happened to you, too... have you sometimes felt uncomfortable with it? Have you ever laughed lots with it? What do you like the most, in short, about all of it? Sorry for many questions in one... I didn't know how to ask this in a shorter way.

    * Tuomas: Horror helps us deal with our personal fears. Big time.

    ShinyFeather: Sorry Mojo, guess I extended it too much...

    *mojo: no biggie Wink

    ShinyFeather: Well, I didn't know what more to ask because... it's all of a sudden, this Smile

    * Tuomas: Darkness is often so much more intriguing than light

    ShinyFeather: Maybe I have only another little and simpler (simpler?) question to make, and it's precisely that one...

    * Tuomas: But I`d still choose the good guys

    ShinyFeather: What do you think yourself of the idea of darkness? Has it something to do with bad and shady to you, necessarily?

    ShinyFeather: To me... it doesn't actually means that, but... something much warmer, like a place for little lights to shine Smile

    * Tuomas: Darkness has nothing to do with bad or evil. It`s just one part of light.

    ShinyFeather: Thanks a lot for this time, Tuomas, really Smile

    * Tuomas: Takes out the vision so we can hear and UNDERSTAND better

    * Tuomas: Cheers mate!


    yappobiscuits: Hey there Tuomas! Owen from England here. Just me left now I guess, so thanks on behalf of everyone for this most excellent evening! *raises glass* Very Happy

    * Tuomas: I`ll raise one for you, too!


    yappobiscuits: Well, it's a cup of tea really. I'm so english XD

    yappobiscuits: One song I'm very excited about from Imaginarium is the one you describe as "Danny Elfman goes Humppa", as this sounds a bit like another of my favourite bands, Finntroll. Was their music at all an inspiration for this song?

    * Tuomas: Warm beer?

    * Tuomas: I love Finntroll but they were not the inspiration. Mr. Elfman and some ghouls and ghosts were..


    yappobiscuits: sounds awesome. Others have asked about getting nervous on stage… I have similar problems, and I usually solve this with a little alcohol beforehand Wink …what are your thoughts on drinking before a show?

    * Tuomas: It`s a very dangerous thing.. I always take 1 small glass of wine, helps a bit. Screwing up because of booze is cowardly

    yappobiscuits: true, I'm always careful myself too

    yappobiscuits: I'm a huge fan of folk music, and you seem to like using unusual traditional instruments in your music, such as the native american flute, the kantele, and pipes and whistles (speaking of which, I'm from Cumbria, the same part of England as Troy, and I think it's really cool that someone from my area works with Nightwish Razz) …and now the zurna (and more?) on on Imaginarium… What are your favourite types of folk music?

    * Tuomas: I visited Cumbria last fall! Amazing!
    yappobiscuits: it is!

    * Tuomas: I love celtic vibes, even though I`m a Finn, I have to say that

    yappobiscuits: aye same here Smile

    yappobiscuits: Would you ever consider using an accordion in Nightwish? (I'm an accordionist, among other things Razz)

    * Tuomas: In my opinion accordion is one of the most under-appreciated instruments. Why not. Turisas and Finntroll have already done it, though. And done it well

    yappobiscuits: aye it is, twas those bands that inspired me to pick it up! Now I play it in a folk metal band myself finally, I'm an aspiring film composer …When I write music, I like to start by writing out in text a bullet pointed list describing the basic song structure or the story I want to tell before writing detailed music. Do you have a similar (or different) tried and tested method of writing music?

    * Tuomas: Cool!

    yappobiscuits: and thanks for your time mate, has been awesome Very Happy

    * Tuomas: Sth similar, yes! I always have the story 1st, than just try to figure out the way to tell that story well.

    * Tuomas: then, not than..

    * mojo: ooooookay.. folks.. that was it Smile .. Tuomas, wanna say something?

    * Tuomas: Thanks everybody, i truly had a wondrous time! Thanks also to Carol and Mojo! You people are amazing. Enjoy the summer. Love.
    * mojo: *bows* Wink

    * Tuomas: Bows twice in return
    Very successful events. Big thanks to everyone who took part and we look forward to more in the future:
