Efterklang – The Piramida Concert Socks

March 14, 2014 by Rasmus


These lovely socks have been weaved in Korea and are made of cotton (95%) and polyurethane (5%). The design is based on the artwork Hvass&Hannibal created for Efterklang’s live album The Piramida Concert (2013).

You can buy a pair of these socks via our webshop. There’s only 50 pairs available and they come in two sizes. One for women and one for men. www.shop.efterklang.net

They feature a printed on Efterklang logo, but this print is not very durable and comes of easily. Everything else about the socks is super. They are lovely socks. This text was written with the socks on.

New Video For Monument – Celebrating the 1 year anniversary of Piramida and the Release of The Ghost of Piramida

September 25, 2013 by Rasmus

This new video for ‘Monument’ by Andreas Koefoed and Hvass&Hannibal marks the 1 year anniversary of the release of our 4th album ‘Piramida‘ of which ‘Monument’ is the closing song.

It also honours ‘The Piramida Concert‘, the live album we released June 10th 2013 together with the classical orchestra Copenhagen Phil.

And further it marks the digital release of Andreas Koefoed’s Efterklang documentary ‘The Ghost of Piramida‘. On Friday, September 27th, ‘The Ghost of Piramida‘ will be made available for online renting and download at vimeo.com/ondemand/piramida. Pre-order of the film is already available.

Thats a lot of celebration and referencing for just one video, but let us explain how it is all connected.

Both recordings of ‘Monument‘ are featured in this music video. First half of the uses the album version of the song and then follows the live version of ‘Monument’ from ‘The Piramida Concert’.

The 8mm footage used in the video is filmed by Alexander Ivanovic Naumkin, who lived in Piramida (Pyramiden) for many years and who plays a leading role in Andreas Koefoed’s film ‘The Ghost of Piramida’.

The music video features clips from ‘The Ghost of Piramida’ documentary and also artwork and animations by Hvass&Hannibal, who also did all the artwork for ‘Piramida’ and ‘The Piramida Concert’ releases.

(if you live in Germany, then watch the video at vimeo.com/75383583)

No one, but Nan Na and Sofie (of Hvass&Hannibal) and Andreas could have made this video. They have been some of our closest and must trusted collaborators on this entire Piramida project. The others are Francesco Donadello and our live band: Martyn HeyneTatu RönkkëKatinka Fogh VindelevBudgie and Peter Broderick + crew: Anders BollStuart Bailes and Nico de Rooij.

Happy 1 year Anniversary!
Hope you enjoyed the video and please enjoy the film on Friday.

The Piramida tour is coming to an end, but we hope to see you at one of the last shows. In the near future we will visit Germany, UK, Ireland, Slovenia, Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia, Bucharest, Slovakia, Austria, Poland, Malaysia, Korea, ChinaHong Kong and Norway. And then it all ends with a very special concert together with Sønderjyllands Symfoniorkester February 26th 2014 on Als in Denmark where we grew up and where An Island was filmed. More info here.

RELEASED TODAY! The Piramida Concert by Efterklang & Copenhagen Phil conducted by André de Ridder

June 10, 2013 by Rasmus

* please note that the US release date is June 18th 2013.

HAPPY RELEASE DAY!
We are so happy with this live album. Since the debut in Sydney Opera House a little over a year ago we have played 18 of these Piramida Concerts with different and amazing orchestras across the globe. To have it materialise into this live album The Piramida Concert with Copenhagen Phil is a beautiful thing for us. It feels great. We want to thank Copenhagen Phil and conductor André de Ridder for making this possible and we are also sending lots of love to Karsten Fundal and Missy Mazzoli who arranged the songs for orchestra.

The Piramida Concert will only be available digitally and as a limited edition deluxe double gatefold vinyl (one black, one white + CD inside), designed by Danish artists Hvass&Hannibal.

The live album is available now in all good record stores and also through our own webshop shop.efterklang.net.

Here is a nice little presentation of the vinyl edition:

One of our personal favorites on the new live album is the track THE LIVING LAYER + VÆLV, which as the titel suggests actually is two songs. The Living Layer by Efterklang and Vælv written by Karsten Fundal. You can listen to this via Soundcloud.

Some official info for you about this new release:
The Piramida Concert by Efterklang & Copenhagen Phil was recorded live at Copenhagen’s Royal Academy of Music Concert Hall in October 2012. Over the course of two sold-out nights Efterklang – plus Peter Broderick, Katinka Fogh Vindelev and Budgie (Siouxsie and The Banshees) – teamed up with classical orchestra Copenhagen Phil and German conductor André de Ridder to perform the Danish act’s fourth album Piramida in its entirety. Staged for the first time at the Sydney Opera House in May 2012, the orchestral arrangements were written by fellow Dane Karsten Fundal and New York composer Missy Mazzoli. The Piramida Concert also features ‘So’, a song written during recording sessions for Piramida, and ‘Vælv’, a classical piece commissioned by Efterklang and composed by Karsten Fundal. The live performance was mixed to tape by Francesco Donadello in the Vox-Ton studio in Berlin.. The Piramida Concert will only be available digitally and as a limited edition deluxe double gatefold vinyl (one black, one white + CD inside).
