Cork Opera House has invited Efterklang + Daniel Bjarnason & Their Messing Orchestra to perform at The Reich Effect. A festival in Cork celebrating American composer Steve Reich.
This will be the very very last concert we do for a long time as we will begin working on a new album soon.
Efterklang+Daniel Bjarnason & Their Messing Orchestra is a special 17 piece band that debuted at the Cross Linx festival tour in February earlier this year.
And then we have the brilliant Icelandic composer Daniel Bjarnason on Rhodes and then you add a saxophone quartet, a brass quartet and a classic percussionist. This all turns into Efterklang + Daniel Bjarnason & Their Messing Orchestra. We will be playing Efterklang songs with arrangements for the Messing Orchestra by Daniel Bjarnason.
We are honored to be invited to play this concert and the whole festival program looks amazing to us. More info here about the festival.
Here are some videos recorded back in February:
