Take a joyful ride into the magical music world of German Nils Frahm, in this intimate live concert recording of his works on piano and synthesizer.
German musician, composer and pianist Nils Frahm (born 1982) works from his Berlin-based Durton Studio, creating glitchy electronica as well as modern-classical pieces.
Frahm has worked and collaborated with many contemporaries such as Peter Broderick, Ólafur Arnalds, Anne Müller, Deaf Center, Efterklang and Dustin O’Halloran. His unconventional approach to an age-old instrument, played contemplatively and intimately, has won him many fans around the world, including Thom Yorke, who featured one of Nils’ songs in Radiohead’s HQ office chart.
Recorded at The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, as part of the FROST music festival, Copenhagen, February 2013.

Nils Frahm playing a show in a Parisian Apartment for La Blogotheque series "Soirées de Poche"
"We showed him the piano; it was as if we were introducing someone to him to the first time. He lifted the lid, hit a couple of keys, smiled and murmured, “He’s got character”. Later: “He’s unpredictable. I like it”. He played a little more, and called out to us once more: “Hmm… there’s a slight chance that I might break it. I get excited sometimes.” We didn’t tell this to our hosts; instead, we crossed our fingers."
