Nils Frahm announces new album 'Spaces' – recorded over two years in different locations and on various mediums – with video teaser!
Berlin-based contemporary composer Nils Frahm has built a steady reputation for his intimate, poignant piano recordings, yet they so far only showed a fragment of what to expect from a Nils Frahm concert. Frahm’s heart lies in improvisation, in the magic of a moment where, inspired by the space and the audience, his fingers can create new compositions loosely based around his familiar melodies.
Recorded over the course of two years in different locations and on various mediums, including old portable reel-to-reel recorders and cassette tape decks, these moments were later pieced together in his Durton Studio and referred to by Frahm as a collage of field recordings rather than a live album.
Spaces was mastered by the gifted hands of Mandy Parnell and will be released in the form of a CD, 2xLP and Download on November 18, 2013 via Erased Tapes.
