Efterklang just posted the following update in regard to the Efterkids project (Link to post). Still plenty of time to donate or download the materials and start your own program. has been online for a week now and we already got a lot of nice coverage (like: DrownedinSound, Filter, Pitchfork). Thanks to all you guys who have spend time watching the videos and shared the info.

We don’t have an recent update on how much have been donated (as this is managed by 4AD in NYC) but we are expecting that we are close to the first goal which is a new computer and composer software for the Special Music School. Any donation no matter size is still welcome via

In the recent week we have also been in contact with good people in Brussels and Eindhoven. It looks like two new Efterkids performances are close to be confirmed! We look forward to share those news with you soon.

News: Efterklang – Efterkids project


by Rasmus Weng Karlsen – January 2009


As if Efterklang were not already the nicest group of people walking this Earth, they have now launched a new program to promote music education for children called Efterkids. The project provides learning materials for school programs and is actively looking for donations to help various schools.

Efterklang have already performed with students of Special Music School (NYC) via skype which you can see here at 4AD.

Efterklang encourages educators around the world to download the course materials to create their own Efterkids concert in their classroom. Enclosed in the download package are the musical score, the parts score, playback track (sans strings) and a strings-capella track.

As the economy struggles to come back from the abyss the arts struggle to survive. Please take a few minutes and donate. No amount is too small.
