Efterklang Interview On MFTV, Sydney 2012
MusicFeeds TV caught up with Efterklang to talk about their upcoming performance at VIVID Live festival. They are in Australia for their first time to perform a world premiere of unreleased songs to be released on their forthcoming album Piramida. The performance will be held at the Sydney Opera House this Saturday, May 26.
Compared to previous albums, the performance represents a very different direction artistically for the band. Despite a desire to produce very densely layered music, Efterklang made a conscious decision to make their music very sparse. This forms the basis of their live performance, leaving space for orchestration. This in effect creates two distinct musical experiences of the band’s music: first the live performance and secondly the final album, which will not feature this instrumentation. Visuals in the live show will also round out the experience, although Eferklang worry about them being a distraction to listeners.
