Ingmar Bergman R.I.P

August 7, 2007 by Barnabas

Ingmar Bergman
It is about a week ago now, when Ingmar Bergman passed away on the small island Farö, in his native country Sweden. To watch and feel Bergman´s work means a lot to me, and I felt touched to hear these sad sad news…
These are a couple of recommendations for all of you not familiar with his work:
Persona (watch the intro sequence below), Fanny & Alexander og Wild Strawberries

The Story of Ping – episode 1 “Reach”

August 2, 2007 by Rasmus

A while ago our song Towards The Bare Hill from our mini-album Under Giant Trees was part of ThinkSynchFilms short film Competition.

We can now proudly present one of the results from this. Iyvone Khoo and Miguel Guzman from the UK have made a nice little video. Its a story of a girl puppet named Ping who is on a quest for freedom.

Iyvone and Michael would like to make an episode two of this story. They would like to hear from you what should happen to Ping now? Any suggestions? Please leave them as a comment

efterklang on book soundtrack

July 23, 2007 by Rasmus

If you are looking for a good novel to read while you are slacking in a hammock somewhere warm and nice maybe you should go find “The Unquiet” by John Connolly.

The UK hardcover edition of this novel has been published with a bonus CD compiled by John Connolly featuring music that plays a role in the book and which inspire him in his writings. Our song Collecting Shields is featured together with an array of great songs! The compilation is called Into The Dark and it features names like Midlake, Low, The National plus my favorite track with Sufjan Stevens and many more.

Personally I have not read the book yet, but I look forward to do so once Thomas brings our copy back home from Thailand…

If you would like to get a hold of the book including the CD, then click here:

There should be copies left I believe. The edition with the cd´s was 80.000 copies.

Bjørk! Arcade Fire! Akron/Family! Turboweekend! Analogik!

and we have to mention all the bands we were involved in as well! Because they did a fantastic job all of them! Tenniscoats / Slaraffenland / Maher Shalal Hash Baz / Grizzly Bear / Taxi Taxi! / Kama Aina / Nika Soup & Saya Source and not to forget Nikaido Kazumi having never seen her perform before this was possible the biggest experiece of the festival! All of these names were presented on the festival through us and 4 of them are on our label Rumraket.

also I will never forget the 100% spontaneous concert Nika Soup & Saya Source played in the Lounge scene during the powercut! Kama Aina, Bill Wells and Ueno from Tenniscoats were the backing band and it was just magical! if anyone have pictures please send them!!

a superb festival indeed!

here is a picture of the original score for “Danske” (danish) – one of Tori Kudo´s latest compositions. He wrote it after he visited the Danish National Museum. Seing Maher Shalal Hash Baz premiere this song in Malmø yesterday at the Full Pull preview and afterwards receiving the score from Tori as a gift was a nice wrap of an incredible week!
