This project is so huge and great that it is a little hard to explain actually.Maybe we should let French filmmaker Vincent Moon do the talking:
In May 2009, i flew to Copenhagen, invited there to experiment some recordings. I had gone in search of this « new » Danish scene, mostly following Slaraffenland in their acoustic rendition of their new album, over one day all over Copenhagen. The result, ‘Temporary Slaraffenland’, is a 40 minute piece, including all their songs in ‘Take Away Show’ style versions.
Two days later, we brought 9 local bands in one house, for one night, to experiment a certain relationship between music and images, and collaborate on something unique and ephemeral. The result is a 30min sound and visual piece, one take, no cuts, plus a lot of outtakes with each band playing one of their songs. A certain idea of a document on a city and its creative life.
