We invited Vincent Moon and his camera to join us on stage to document and interpret the concert in one long take. Today we are extremely proud to present his new film: EFTERKLANG: The Last Concert. It just premiered this morning on La Blogothèque.

The concert featured songs from our entire discography as well as unreleased and so far unknown Efterklang songs. The arrangements for the orchestra were made by Allan Gravgaard MadsenDaniel BjarnasonVan Dyke ParksKarsten FundalHans Ek and Missy Mazzoli.

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.

Introducing: THE LAKE – New Radio

August 13, 2014 by Rasmus

We are extremely happy to be part of this new radio project.
Please welcome THE LAKE.

I don’t wish to get in your pants
Instead, I wish to be your pants

If you want to hear Peter Broderick recite these lines of his above; or a Bertolt Brecht hörspiel followed by a conversation with Nils Frahm’s piano. Or Andy Warhol on the phone superceded by Burmese street kids singing from the back of a pick-up truck and the voices of a Haitian voodoo ceremony – then come to The Lake - www.thelakeradio.com

Broadcasting from Copenhagen to the world, The Lake is on air 24 hours daily at www.thelakeradio.com. The new radio platform is initiated and curated by Kasper Vang (artist), Jan Høgh Stricker (radio journalist) together with Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen and Rasmus Stolberg from the band Efterklang (4AD).

The Lake aims to be the anti-thesis of commercial radio. Its function is to serve as a platform for experimental and inspiring music and sounds, without playlists, boundaries or limitations. The carefully curated library spans all decades of recorded audio, crossing geographical borders, languages and genres.

No one knows what The Lake will play next. Randomized playback will make it a unique experience for listeners who can hear everything from the forgotten and underrated to ground-breaking, rare and new pieces.

LONGER PROGRAMS & BROADCAST EVENTS:

Once a week The Lake will break with its usual 24 hour programming to broadcast special audio recorded exclusively for the radio station.

The first of these will happen on August 24th and 25th where The Lake will broadcast live from this year’s edition of the MAD Symposium in Copenhagen. MAD was founded in 2011 by Noma chef René Redzepi and this year’s event is co-curated by Brazilian chef Alex Atala. More than twenty talks by some of the world’s greatest culinary pioneers and thinkers will be aired on www.thelakeradio.com unedited. More details on the event will be announced soon.

Also coming soon to The Lake, a series of programs from this year’s Roskilde Festival featuring the likes of Julia Holter, The Necks, Arto Lindsay + Paal Nilssen-Love, Fire! Orchestra, King Ayisoba. A series of mixtapes will also be launched this month. The first, entitled Awful Tape from Osaka, will be aired on August 28th.

Please come join us at The Lakewww.thelakeradio.com
