Efterklang - (Set time: 10:30 PM)
The band consists of the 3 childhood friends Mads Brauer, Casper Clausen & Rasmus Stolberg. Performing live Efterklang is joined by sweet and talented people like Peter Broderick (piano, etc), Tatu Rönkkö (drums), Katinka Fogh Vindelev (choir) and often also full symphonic orchestras.

Efterklang is signed to British label 4AD and will release their 4th album ‘Piramida‘ on September 24th 2012.

Along the new album Efterklang has also launched ‘The Piramida Concerts’ which premiered in a unique concert with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra in Sydney Opera House May 26th 2012. In Total the band played 16 of these orchestral concerts in connection with the release of the ‘Piramida‘ album.

Starting December 2012 and throughout most of 2013 Efterklang will go on tour with their 6-piece band in support of the new album.

Efterklang also dabbles with filmmaking (see ‘The Ghost of Piramida’ by Andreas Koefoed & An Island, their collaborative film with Vincent Moon) and they also use to run the tiny, but prolific label Rumraket.
Jherek Bishoff - (Set time: 9:15 PM)
Jherek Bishoff
herek Bischoff plays in bands – he's a member of Parenthetical Girls and a bassist for Amanda Palmer – and produces music; he also writes film soundtracks and scores for dance pieces. On Composed, his debut album, he wears all these hats at once, creating a collection of lavishly orchestrated pop songs that throb with expressionistic drama, by turns romantic, playful and faintly sinister. Violins swoop, slide and scratch across pirouetting flutes, a roguish glockenspiel and jittery percussion; and though the arrangements are sumptuous enough to work as instrumentals, they're made more characterful still by a plethora of guest singers. David Byrne is a swooning roué amid the tropical swirl of Eyes; Caetano Veloso sounds creamy and graceful against the galumphing percussion of The Secret of the Machines; while Dawn McCarthy of Faun Fables breathes witchy incantations in the thrillingly doom-struck Insomnia, Death and the Sea. Occasionally, Composed sounds indulgent, when Bischoff succumbs to syrupy, symphonic cliche; even so, its ambition and singularity are intoxicating.
