Ever heard of Efterklang? Efterklang [ε f t ∂ k l a η ], 1) danish word for “remembrance” or “reverberation”. 2) indie music group from Copenhagen, Denmark, formed in 2000.
[audio:01 – modern drift.mp3] Rarely, a band name has been more suitable: Whenever and wherever you hear Efterklang’s music, suddenly a wide space opens up right in front of you, or, perhaps, you’d better say: around you. It’s all about friendship, childhood and happiness and the never ebbing source of this trias.
Casper Clausens’s bright voice and the way he’s beating his harlekin-style-painted drums is, somehow, an invitation to tap this precious source by recalling the past, whenever you need it.
Modern Drift by Efterklang
Efterklang are: the five core members Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen, Thomas Husmer, Rune Mølgaard and Rasmus Stolberg. When performing live, the core five-piece band is complemented with the addition of violinist/singer Peter Broderick, trombonist/singer Niklas Antonson, pianist/singer Anna Brønsted and guitarist/singer Frederik Teige.
French filmmaker Vincent Moon and Efterklang’s 8 piece-live band met up on an island in the Danish country side. The objective was to shoot a film. A film with the same length as an album, and a film full of performances, experiments and collaborations.
Over an intense period of 4 days Efterklang collaborated with more than 200 local musicians, kids and parents, creating new performances and interpretations of songs from their Magic Chairs album. It was all filmed by Vincent Moon who same time conducted several filmic and musical experiments with Efterklang as his dedicated play mates.
