Efterklang take-over: Leaves, Liima, films – More Music – Brugge April 2016

December 10, 2015 by Rasmus

Leaves photos by Mathias Løvgren Bojesen

More Music! festival has dedicated a whole day of their program to Efterklang.

Come and join us in Brugge, Belgium on April 8th 2016.

They are calling it REVERBERATIONS: An Evening with Efterklang.

We are bringing the entire LEAVES team for a concert version performance of the opera that we co-composed with Karsten Fundal.

Our other band Liima, that we share with Tatu Rönkkö, will also be performing and there will be screenings of the films An Island (by Vincent Moon & Efterklang) and The Ghost of Piramida (by Andread Koefoed & Efterklang).


LEAVES premiered at Copenhagen Opera Festival July 2015 in co-production with Sort/Hvid. The opera is composed by Karsten Fundal and Efterklang and features English lyrics by Ursula Andkjær Olsen. All 16 original performances took place in a abandoned hospital / cold-war bunker and were completely sold-out.

The performance at More Music will be a concert version of Leaves, with the same team of singers and musicians from the Copenhagen performances.

Singers: Lisbeth Balslev (soprano) – Morten Grove Frandsen (counter tenor) – Katinka Fogh Vindelev (soprano) – Nicolai Elsberg (bass) – Casper Clausen (Efterklang)

Musicians: Mads Brauer (electronics, Efterklang) – Rasmus Stolberg (bass, Efterklang) – Bjarke Mogensen (accordion) – Jenny Lüning (viola) – Josefine Weber (viola) – Marie Louise Lind (cello) – Josefine Opsahl (cello) – Ying-Hsueh Chen (percussion) – Sara Nigard Rosendal (percussion) – Michael Min Knudsen (organ)


When Liima played at Le Guess Who? a few weeks ago they also recorded a session for 3VOOR12.

Watch them perform ‘Amerika’, ‘Your Heart’ and ‘Trains in the Dark’ via YouTube:

Our album Parades from 2007 is one of the chosen albums that will be featured in this beautiful release alongside great albums by Wildbirds & Peacedrums, Caribou, Susuma Yokota and more.

The Leaf 20 box is comprised of fourteen pieces of pristine white vinyl in full artwork and wrapped in bespoke, hand-printed paper covers, accompanied by the ten albums on CD, plus a fold out catalogue artwork poster, a limited edition print, and liner notes by acclaimed writer and journalist Rob Young. All painstakingly curated and assembled by label founder Tony Morley in collaboration with Leeds design studio Split, this is the finest Leaf document money can buy. Limited to only 300 copies, The Leaf 20 box is available to pre-order now through Pledge Music.

The Leaf Label also recently reissued our debut album Tripper (2004) on vinyl. You can buy that one here.
