Nils Frahm Live @ Korskirken, Bergen 2014-10-24 (Ekkofestivalen)

The encore took the mood down again to a quiet melancholy with "Unter" from "Felt", and "Tristana" and "Ambre" from "Wintermusik" (Erased Tapes, 2009).

Despite the logistics problems Frahm faced when arriving in Bergen, he pulled off a concert of great beauty and lyricism in front of a very pleased audience. Frahm has created a niche for himself where he is more or less alone at the moment, and where he eagerly explores different possibilities within the self-imposed boundaries of his concept. He certainly is one to follow closely in the future to see where his next projects take him.

Friday night: the church Korskirken in Bergen was packed with an audience excited to experience the music of the Berlin-based composer and musician Nils Frahm.


Frahm is a classically trained pianist, and, as a composer, his music is heavily influenced by several 20th century composers. However, Frahm has moved beyond this, and today is best known for combining electronic and classical music. In fact, Frahm has been interested in and inspired by electronic music his entire life. As a composer he is, actually, just as influenced by jazz and improvised music as he is by other classical and contemporary styles, and sonic experimentation and improvisation are cornerstones to his method of composition.


He is an exceptionally productive musician, with as many as 10 albums and EPs in his own name since 2005, in addition to several collaborations with other artists.
