Midweek Music Moment: Nils Frahm ‘Says’

Nils Frahm is a German pianist and composer known for his ambient combinations of classical and electronic music. (http://www.nilsfrahm.com)

 

Frahm’s work mixes a range of pianos (upright, grand), synthesisers (Moog, Roland) and drum machines – and he is known for his use of vintage equipment.

 

Although an avid collaborator, today’s Midweek Music Moment is this track, ‘Says’ from his 2013 solo album, ‘Spaces’.

It starts out gently and then slowly builds in intensity – so make sure you give it the whole 8 minutes to get the full effect.

 

 

If you would prefer something a little shorter and simpler (with stunning visuals), check out ‘Re’ from his 2012 album, ‘Screws’.

 

 

And lastly, I would be remiss if I didn’t mention his latest 2016 album, ‘Solo’.

The album was recorded on the M370, the world’s largest piano, built by the visionary piano maker David Klavins in 1987.
