Like last month’s post of Martin Roth’s ‘An Analog Guy In A Digital World’, this sound from Nils Frahm is a serene interlude. ‘Says’ features on his 2013 album Spaces. He creates a pure, pulsating soundscape that is both contemporary and classical.
Piano player, composer and producer, Nils Frahm is based in Berlin. Like any self respecting Berliner, he is known for experimenting with electronic music. Frahm’s take is to combine classical and synthesised keyboard sounds. In 2011, his unconventional approach took a turn for the different due to a run-in with a bunk bed. That nocturnal event gave him a broken thumb and the time to practice with 9 fingers and less keys. The stripped back sound is what you hear on his 2012 long player Screws. ‘Re’ is the third track on the album and provides us with today’s Wednesday interlude.
