Stream of Noma – new Efterklang piece

March 27, 2015 by Rasmus

‘Stream of Noma’ is an hour long sound piece created by Efterklang, and installed in the bathrooms at Restaurant Noma. The recordings were made by Efterklang both at the restaurant and at a local supplier’s chicken farm.

‘Stream of Noma’ features hundreds of recordings, made in September of 2013, which were layered to form an aural stream with 20 focal points. The focal points both reference and parallel the 20 servingsof Noma’s menu, and they vary in form and approach; some of them are clean field recordings, while others take a straight musical approach. Most of the focal points also use processed manipulations ofthe recordings which are then used as rhythmic or melodic elements or as samples for synths.

‘Stream of Noma’ is an abstraction of the Noma kitchen, the process—the circle, the suppliers, foragers, preparation— and the result is the menu. The piece tunnels a link between the kitchen and the diner, providing a behind-the-scenes glimpse, though both aural and abstract, at the mystique ofthe restaurant.

You can listen to an excerpt of ‘Stream of Noma’ below. If you want to hear the entire piece you will have to visit Restaurant Noma – and occupy the bathroom for 67 minutes.

Tripper is now 10 Years Old

October 26, 2014 by Rasmus

Time flies! It is a cliche and it is the truth.


October 25th 2004 we released our debut album Tripper.
It came out on The Leaf Label, and it was our international debut.

We will mark the anniversary in the near future.

In the mean time you can enjoy this Efterklang documentary made in 2004 by MTV Nordic. Quite toe cringing for us to watch this today, but also very sweet and funny. We were so young and had never talked to a camera before.

Watch This is Our Music: EFTERKLANG (2004)

Here is another little gem from 2004.
The greenlandic choir MIK were among the many guest musicians on the Tripper album.
We recorded them singing this song, during the recordings for the album back in 2004.

Please get in touch if you know the title of this song?
and go pay MIK a visit here.

Hail DR Underholdnings Orkestret – Thank you and Goodbye

September 8, 2014 by Rasmus

In 2008 we were invited by The Danish National Chamber Orchestra (DR UnderholdningsOrkestret) to perform our newly released album Parades in its entirety.

DR Underholdnings Orkestret took a big chance inviting us back then and we are forever grateful. Their trust have since led to a total of 30 collaborative concerts with 14 different orchestras around the world.

Today DR (Danish Radio) announced that the orchestra will be shut down by the end of the year.

This makes us very sad and disillusioned as well. In Denmark DR Underholdnings Orkestret has been going forward in trying to rethink and change the idea of what an orchestra is and what role it can play in our time.

Budget cuts are never easy and sacrifices have to be made. In a year where DR has burned millions and millions on a Eurovision TV show and for the 8th year in a row spends millions on producing the X-Factor TV show it is however hard to not get pissed off.

HAIL to the beautiful people in DR Underholdnings Orkestret. 
THANK you all!

Here is a document from that concert back in 2008. It holds a special place in our hearts.
