Efterklang on the telly – this sunday!

September 13, 2008 by Rasmus

this will be a quick announcement to the people living in Sweden and others who can watch SVT2 on their tellies!

This Sunday, September 14th SVT2 will broadcast a full hour dedicated to Efterklang between 7pm and 8 pm. They filmed us when we played live in Lund, Sweden last spring and I think the program will include some interviews or footage of us fooling around as well.

We would like to thank Mikael and the SVT2 team for being so super cool!
And we look forward to watch the program as well!

take care and enjoy the rest of your weekend

Parades Concert Diary #1 – 9th September

September 11, 2008 by Barnabas

Hi All

As some of you already know, we’re preparing the biggest Efterklang concert event ever these days.

On Friday, September 26th We’ll be performing our latest album, Parades, from start to finish in two concerts on the same night. We will be joined on stage by The Danish National Chamber Orchestra (DR UnderholdningsOrkestret). We’ll be over 50 musicians on stage in what looks to be an amazing scenography by the wonderful Hvass&Hannibal It will all take place in the newly build Koncerthuset, Studie 2 in DR Byen (National Radio & TV broadcast center), Copenhagen!

The last couple of days we had the first rehearsals with the orchestra. It was the two best days we’ve had in a long time. It is such an amazing feeling and beyond words to hear our little baby Parades unfolding itself in a full blown live orchestra!!!

We’ll try to do a little photo/text update about the whole project up until September 26th. This is the first one, more to come…

The first day with the Orchestra:


The concert hall (Studie 2), where the Parades concert will take place. It’ll all look very different by then though…


This is Karsten Fundal (left), the musical score arranger of the concert and Erik Heide, the concert maestro (first violinist of the orchestra. We’ll play without a conductor, so Erik will be in charge of the orchestra


Today was a rehearsal only with the leaders of each instrument group


Ralf Christensen behind the camera. Ralf will be doing a documentary about the whole thing

You can read more about the concert here and buy tickets on BilletNet.dk (da/en)

Extra (Bombastic) Parades Concert in Copenhagen added!!!

August 21, 2008 by Barnabas

Hi all

As some of you already know, we’re right now preparing the most ambitious Efterklang concert ever and about to fulfill one of our biggest dreams!

On September 26th, 8PM we’ll be playing our latest album Parades in concert, from start till end, together with The Danish National Chamber Orchestra (DR UnderholdningsOrkestret) in the newly build DR Byen (National danish Radio/TV town) in Copenhagen, DK.

This will for the first time ever turn Efterklang into a 60 piece band for an exclusive performance! Read more here (english) and here (in danish)

We’ve just been informed that the tickets are selling fast… Therefore it’s been decided to add one extra show! The second concert will take place on the same date and spot just at 10PM (first one at 8PM)

This will certainly be a very special evening for us, and we hope share it with you!!!

Much Love from all of us
Casper

Our very first Theatre Music Premieres on Saturday in Copenhagen!

August 18, 2008 by Barnabas

Hi all people of Copenhagen

Lately, we’ve been working on our very first theatre music. The play is called En Plads i mit Hjerte (a place in my heart), and we’ve composed all the music in the play. The premiere will take place on Saturday, September 23rd (the first couple of evenings are sold out though) and most days until September 20th on K1 (Kaleidoskop, Nørrebro).

We’re all extremely happy with both the process and result. It’s been very inspiring entering this art form for the first time. We’ve been given a lot of space to play with, by the whole fantastic team around this project, so we couldn’t have dreamt of a better debut than this…

If you have the chance, we recommend you (and your friends) to go see it! It’s all in danish but the acting and music are universal:)

Much love from all of us
Casper
