A few months back we reviewed French film maker Vincent Moon’s fantastic Efterklang film ‘An Island’. The project has now been released as a beautiful limited edition DVD package…
The DVD is limited to 5000 copies and they are all individually numbered. The DVD comes with almost an hour extra material and the cover is very very special. Danish design studio Hvass&Hannibal has designed the artwork that features photography by Antje Taiga Jandrig. The cover is custommade and printed on recycled paper stock using vegetable based inks, by Stumptown Printers in Portland, Oregon.
When ordering the DVD you also receive the Bonus EP – Efterklang ‘Live at Roskilde Festival 2010′.
In August 2010, French filmmaker Vincent Moon and Efterklang’s 8 piece-live band met up on an island off the Danish coast.
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 their own parents, creating new performances and interpretations of songs from their album Magic Chairs (4AD, Rumraket 2010).
It was all filmed by Vincent Moon who same time conducted several filmic and musical experiments with Efterklang as his dedicated playmates.
The deluxe DVD is available here
