Electro-acoustic café recently appeared at two favourite festivals - Eufonic in Spain (in a space with incredible acoustics), and then a return to the ever-wonderful Geiger in Gothenburg. These will probably be the last appearances of the year, due to other sound projects happening during the next few months. But EAC will be back in action again in 2017!
The world premiere of Electro-acoustic cafe 5.1 will be at Music Tech Festival Scandinavia in Umeĺ, 29 - 31 May 2015. This will be a completely new version of EAC, in full surround-sound for the first time, with a battery power system so it can be set up anywhere, and a whole host of other new developments. New video here
The new EAC 5.1 video was released on 21st May. It was shot on a small remote island, the location of which will never be revealed. This is the first new Electro-acoustic cafe video since the original project was launched in 2011. Now it's time for the next level of espresso-sound....
Coffee was always meant to be this loud.
Described as "visionary" by BBC Radio 3 presenter Max Reinhardt, the original Electro-acoustic cafe toured European festivals including CTM Berlin, Latitude UK (BBC stage), Norberg festival, Exit 07 Luxembourg and Art's Birthday at Södra Teatern in Stockholm. The project has also been featured on Swedish national television SVT:1, radio P2 and the front page of Sydsvenskan - one of the country's main newspapers. It has also received international media attention - including BBC Radio 3, Danish national radio, CTM Berlin's webTV channel, and the Luxemburger Wort newspaper.
