Sep 24 8:00PM // Lobby
Efterklang plays a live four-song set in the lobby to celebrate the release of their new album, Piramida. The Danish trio is in town for a collaborative performance of Piramida with the Wordless Music Orchestra at the Metropolitan Museum of Art. After their live set, band members and Victoire take turns on the decks til around midnight. Live performance by Katinka Fogh Vindelev.
You can listen to Piramida here.
"Inspired by a nine-day session spent gathering field recordings in the abandoned Russian mining settlement that gives the album its name — it's on an island situated between Norway and the North Pole — Piramida is full of strange and mysterious accumulated sounds. The vacant facility produced all sorts of ghostly and clamorous sonic emissions, many of which find their way into these 10 sweetly stately, somewhat uncharacteristically melancholy songs. What sounds like a thumb piano in 'Hollow Mountain,' for example, is actually the product of an oil tank, although what sounds like a 70-member girls' choir is actually a 70-member girls' choir; every second of Piramida is sculpted to maximize its beauty, and Efterklang draws from the biggest toolkit imaginable."
This event is free and open to all ages.
We have DJs and sound installations every night of the week, plus live music on Sundays curated by Chris Tucci. Here's the DJ line-up for September:
