Contemporale Series: Nils Frahm
Nils Frahm works as an accomplished composer and producer from his Berlin-based Durton Studio. His unconventional approach to an age-old instrument, played contemplatively and intimately, has won him many fans around the world. For a musician this early in his career, Frahm displays an incredibly developed sense of control and restraint in his work, catching the ear of many fans. In August 2015 Nils announced his continued musical partnership with fellow artist Ólafur Arnalds which culminated with the release of their ‘Collaborative Works’ in October 2015 and included ‘Stare’ (2012) their very first recording together which took place in 2011 between Reykjavík and Berlin, featuring cellist Anne Müller. ‘Loon’ a synthesiser-led 5-track EP that was recorded in autumn 2014 across five days at Nils’s Durton Studio in Berlin. ‘Life Story Love And Glory’ (2015) a 2-track live improv affair on two pianos and ‘Trance Frendz’ (2015) the audio recording of their intimate 45-minute studio film.
