Nils Frahm Announces New Album
- Words: Chris Kokiousis
After catching our eye with an unforgettable live performance at this year's MUTEK festival, piano virtuoso Nils Frahm has announced that his new record, Spaces, will arrive this fall via Erased Tapes. In the two years since Felt—Frahm's last studio album of meditative, modern composition—the German artist has expanded into a more varied sonic palette and allowed his pieces to grow through improvisation. Spaces was recorded in a variety of live settings, using mediums like reel-to-reel recorders and cassette decks to capture his favorite impromptu cuts, later piecing them together as a "collage of field recordings" in his own Durton Studio. Before Erased Tapes releases Spaces on November 28 (November 19 in the US), a short album trailer featuring clips from the composer's live show can be seen below, where Frahm's upcoming tour dates can also be found.
