Efterklang have revealed part of new piece of music entitled ‘Lyden af København’ (The Sound of Copenhagen) which has been commissioned by Århus Festival (known in Denmark as Århus Festuge). The 23 minute long sound collage premiered August 30th 2013 in Århus, Denmark.
This is the first of four parts of ‘Lyden af København’. To listen to it in its entirety you will have to travel to Aarhus. There will be a listening station in the foyer of Musikhuset where the piece can be listened to in full from August 30th to September 8th in the opening hours of the concert hall.
DR Kunstklub organised the collection of sounds that we have used. In May and June anyone could contribute with their own recordings of various sounds of Copenhagen. We received the sound files beginning of July and with Mads at the steering wheel we have created this 23 minute long sound collage.
The artwork for ‘Lyden af København’ is made by Stephanie F. Scholz . It will be printed on a postcard which will be distributed during the festival.
