The album features seven fragile, graceful compositions which provide a clear signpost towards his future. “Now I’ve rediscovered it,” Nils Frahm concludes, “I feel grateful this exists, because it truly sounds like someone different I can’t ever bring back. I’m happy I play differently now, but hearing this side of me makes me sentimental...”
Nils Frahm is one of the most exciting sound explorers of our time. When defining the space between classical and electronic music, hardly any other name is mentioned as often as that of the Berlin-based pianist, composer, and producer. His unconventional approach to an age-old instrument played contemplatively and intimately and on a mesmerizing scale through his vast stage shows has won him many fans worldwide. Now Nils Frahm has announced the release of three albums of rare early recordings, many of which have been unobtainable for years, some of which have never been released at all. Streichelfisch returns to vinyl for the first time since its original 2005 pressing, and Durton pairs tracks from 2006’s digital only My First EP with five previously unheard compositions, while Electric Piano contains seven tracks originally released as a download in 2008.
