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.
Support on the night comes from Portland duo Ryan Francesconi and Mirabai Peart which all in all makes for a D/B highly recommended double bill.
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.
In 2011, Portland’s Ryan Francesconi (until recently best known for his work as the musical director on Joanna Newsom’s stunning triple album “Have One On Me”) has established himself as a leading figure in acoustic composition and performance. Now he prepares to comes back to Europe to prove it again.
On this occasion Francesconi will perform as part of a duo with his partner Mirabai Peart who together released an album Road To Palios, an exquisite cycle of instrumental duets for acoustic guitar and violin, on Bella Union at the end of last year.
