The Ghost of Piramida
Following the release of fourth album Piramida (Sep 2012, 4AD), Efterklang add another string to their bow with The Ghost of Piramida, a film by Danish director Andreas Koefoed, that documents the Danish trio’s visit to the abandoned Russian mining town where the record’s inception began back in the summer of 2011.
Accompanied by their taciturn and indifferent Russian polar bear guard, the group goes on an audio treasure hunt in the empty buildings of the abandoned town, while the narrator, former Piramida citizen Alexander, takes us back to a bygone era, when Piramida flourished and the immigrant Russian miners and their families lived in a Soviet parallel society far from the brutal reality of their homeland.
TAPE is located in the most fascinating street of Arnhem and was founded in 2008 to offer young and talented artists, writers and designers a space for experiment. Exhibitions are held in the basement regularly and you can buy art from the vending machine. Thursday March 7th, the TAPE basement will be reserved for the screening of The Ghost of Piramida. The film will start at 21:00h and there will be a limited amount of seats, so please be on time!
