After the show at SLAY HOME SLAY SAFE, our vocalist SOFIA had a talk with DEN TUNGE RADIO. Live and raw from the backstage lounge at FORBRÆNDINGEN, we talk about the visual and theatrical elements of Ethereal Kingdoms, how to deal with being a band during a pandemic and what’s next for Ethereal Kingdoms.
A complete universe
How does it feel to play again, but without an audience?
“Being back on stage is like an out of body experience!”
– SOFIA SCHMIDT
“A concert is a transformative space, a symbiosis between the audience and the performing artist. Suddenly, I can’t see and feel the audience. It feels like we play more internally with each other in the band like this.”
KASPER asked about the importance of the visual elements in Ethereal Kingdoms live performances:
“It’s like a complete aesthetic. (…) We have a theatre theme, so we incorporate those elements. We use video backdrops, light design (…) We create a universe you can enter. The music can of course exist on its own. When I watch a concert, I want to see something larger than life. The visuals make the story clearer”
“Music and art can be a place of escape in this time, where ____ (…) we try to create such a space, which people can enter.”
