EFTERKLANG created this epic scale project originating from their expedition to the former Russian mining settlement of Piramida on Spitsbergen, now a ghost town just 1,000km from the North Pole. The band spent nine days collecting more than 1000 sounds.
MBM’s Piramida Concerts tour saw this innovative rock band collaborate with the 35-piece Northern Sinfonia, orchestra of The Sage Gateshead, conducted by André de Ridder. The Danish trio performed as a six-piece, augmented by Peter Broderick (piano), Katinka Fogh Vindelev (choir) and Budgie (drums) of Siouxsie and the Banshees & The Creatures. They were joined by JOHN GRANT to open the concerts.
