Slaraffenklang – a mutant band! live on 08/11/08

October 9, 2008 by Rasmus

Slaraffenklang On November 8th we will join forces with our friends in Slaraffenland and for one night only perform together under the name Slaraffenklang. This new band will feature 2 drummers, pianos, hordes of guitars and brass, a million other instruments and of course a proper mens choir!

Slaraffenklang will play songs written by Slaraffenland and Efterklang in new arrangements and the plan is basically to have a lot of fun!

Catch this very special band at Viften in Rødovre, Denmark.
The concert is part of the new SONO Festival. Wildbirds & Peacedrums are also on the bill and so is Ekko!

We’ve had the most incredible tour debut around China, and the last concert, Saturday, at Yugongyishan in Beijing was such a nice way to end it all.
Thanks a lot to all of you sweet people that turned up at the concerts, and made us feel more welcome than we could ever have dreamt of! Can’t wait till next time…

Much love from all of us

last Friday the Performing Parades Concert premiered in Copenhagen. There is no doubt that this is wildest thing yet to happen for us. We would like to thank DR UnderholdningOrkestret for playing with us! Karsten Fundal for arranging the score! Karl Bjerre-Skibsted for inviting us and for being so über cool as the producer of the whole thing. We would also like to mention that Hvass&Hannibal are the coolest designers/visual artists on this planet and that their scenography and costumes were more than brilliant! Also thanks to Benjamin Hesselholdt and his extremely hard working team of cool and friendly light and camera people!

and thanks to all who came to the shows!!! we had an incredible time!!

Last Friday we were more than 50 people on stage!! Today we travel to China to perform as a 6 piece band!! Very schizophrenic and also very uplifting. We are so happy to see the different forms that Efterklang take these days!

Tomorrow/today (Friday, September 26th), is the big concert day! We’ll perform Parades from start till end with the National Danish Chamber Orchestra, and we’ve been looking forward to this for a long long time…

During the this week we’ve been rehearsing with the orchestra, and today we played the entire concert for the first time; an amazing experience!!! Besides the musical joy, it’s such a great pleasure following the process of the incredible scenography by Hvass&Hannibal and the magical light setting!!!

Apparently, both concerts are sold out, so we can only welcome those of you who already bought a ticket. Hopefully we’ll get another chance to do this sometime in the future…

Much love from all of us

Parades Concert Diary #2 – September 10th

September 19, 2008 by Barnabas

Hi all

A little late, but here’s an update on our preparations for the Parades Concert in Copenhagen, Day#2!

Today was really exciting, as this was our very first rehearsal with the whole orchestra. We tried 4 of the more “difficult” songs/arrangements, and the experience was overwhelming!!!
It’s hard to describe, but listening to the music for the first time played by an orchestra all together, feels so right. This first big rehearsal, was mostly about listening and getting used to the sound and general feel of the orchestra – so we were all waiting like small boys at the candy shop window:)

Can’t wait till next week, witch will be packed with rehearsals and preparations, up until the big concert day on Friday, September 26th!

You can read more about the concert here and buy tickets on (DA/EN)

Here’s a couple of Photo’s from the day:

The first sheet prints

it’s hard to get all in the picture, when there’re so many people, and your camera is way to small…

September 15, 2008 by Barnabas

Hello all non swedish friends:)

We’ve got a few messages about troubles with the SVT Streamer, concerning the concert that we did for Swedish Television (aired first time yesterday evening on SVT2)

Today we got this from a gentle guy called Rob, he says:

“Hi Efterklang,
Non-Swedish residents can view the documentary via the link below:

Hope this will help you out!

PLEASE NOTE the sound was bad before but has just been fixed!!!
