Efterklang / The making of Piramida

Efterklang Piramida Trailer
Here’s a wonderful look at the making of Efterklang’s new album Piramida, shot during an audio expedition to an abandoned Russian settlement in Spitsbergen, close to the North Pole.

“Spitsbergen is home to more polar bears than people and also to the ghost town of Piramida, which was abandoned overnight in 1998, and today stands as a slowly decaying ruin still full of physical memories like the world´s northernmost piano.”

I love seeing what lengths they go to just to discover and record sounds! Watch the clip below!

Piramida releases September 24th 2012.
