“An Island” by Vincent Moon, Limited Release EP/DVD

21 November 2011, 22.33 | Posted in Art & Design, Culture, Interviews, Music, Uncategorized | Comments Off

A while ago I hosted a screening for the film An Island, a film by Vincent Moon about the amazing band Efterklang. This was definitely more than a music/video project, it’s an inspiring look at how important sound is to regional cultures. They are now releasing a limited edition DVD/EP designed by Hvass&Hannibal featuring the photography of Antje Taiga Jandrig and a custom-made cover printed by Stumptown Printers in Portland, Oregon.

The DVD release is limited to 5000 copies and they are all individually numbered. The cover holds 5 postcards and a 35 page booklet with lots of photos and background info written by Efterklang. When ordering the DVD you get the new EFTERKLANG EP ‘Live at Roskilde Festival 2010′ as a bonus! An Island is also available digitally after the Pay-What-You-Want model. Available via anisland.cc. Scroll down for more images.
