Nils Frahm

Nils Frahm

Live in Concert

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.
