Here is a nifty GoPro video documenting the days leading up to Celestial Son’s live show in Dansehallerne.
Thursday May 19th, 8pm
”On the 19th of May at Dansehallerne‘s big stage we will play what undoubtedly will be our biggest and most ambitious show ever implementing live shadow theater, an incredible light show and insanely innovative visuals by some of the most praised and skilled international directors around today.
It is really a dream coming true and I can’t wait to show you what the team is working on behind the scenes. It is going to be an absolute stunner of a concert and I’m thrilled and honored to work alongside such talented people – among other the award winning L.A. based director Karim Ghaghwagi (Trentemøller, Efterklang and Kúra) who’s making visuals specially designed for this evening. The likewise internationally praised director Lasse Hoile (Opeth, Dream Theater, Porcupine Tree, Steven Wilson….) will also bring his magic to the screen and behind the curtain members from the aspiring theater group Banyan will act live in a beautifully constructed shadow theater show.
There will only be a limited number of numbered tickets available to this special show, so if you wanna be sure to grab a ticket then don’t hesitate to follow this link:”

To the above from Celestial son, I just want to add that other press releases, particularly one on the venue’s own page, mention that I will be the evening’s VJ. While I will be at the show, and thrilled to be there, and excited to experience Celestial Son live in concert, Lasse Hoile and myself are leaving the VJ’ing in the capable hands of Jeppe Sølling, who will also contribute exciting visuals of his own.
I want to thank Laura Beckmann, Chris Frandsen, Ivan Hansen, Rasmus Sjøgren, Cora Ripatti, Kindred Lansdown and Ted Haler for their incredible performances featured in the films and music videos in the show.
This promises to be an exciting, very special night, and I look forward to seeing you there!

Any second, any minute, any hour, any day…
Our music video Death Wish, the third single taken from Celestial Son’s excellent album Saturn’s Return, is out today. Featuring performances by Rasmus Sjøgren (Divide and Conquer, All I Ever Wanted), Soren Castellanos (Monkey King), Cora Ripatti (Monkey King), and Chris Frandsen (Ligature Legislation). I am so lucky to be surrounded with such talented artists, and grateful that everyone was willing to take on this challenging, exciting shoot. Every character featured in this video has appeared in a previous stop motion film of mine, and we felt we wanted to try and push the envelope this time. Shot entirely in stop motion (over 17,000 stills in total were taken during shooting). This video was shot simultaneously with All I Ever Wanted (a 6000+ stills shoot), over a two week period. Additional photography was completed over a 4 week period. Saturn’s Return is out tomorrow! Go get it! See them live somewhere near you soon!
An exclusive and an article on the excellent Bands of Tomorrow site: ” Celestial Son release a beautiful, harsh video with a surprising ending” (In Danish) here
”Når man har set sommerens mesterstykker af videoer fra bandet, er forventningerne til den tredje video i rækken tårnhøje. Videoen til nummeret Death Wish lever dog ikke kun op til forventningerne – den overgår dem.”
On their facebook page, Celestial Son have just given an update on the Death Wish music video:
”So today we were supposed to present the next music video for the track Death Wish. The video is all ready to go but unfortunately due to some unforeseen circumstances we have been forced to push the premiere a little while.
But fear not, the plan is to premiere the video next week before the big release concert on Friday the 11th. at JAZZHOUSE.
More info and the exact date will follow soon.”
