Music Editor Letty Gardner discusses Nils Frahm's upcoming Birmingham show, and why it is not one to miss
His music is eerie, calming, exciting, varied whilst still being indisputably his
Berlin-based music producer Nils Frahm will be gracing Birmingham’s O2 Academy with his experimental piano-driven sounds on Wednesday 20 February. With a vast and incredible discography under his belt, Frahm melds electronic and classical music together, working interestingly through unconventional piano approaches and celebrated performance. His music is eerie, calming, exciting, varied whilst still being indisputably his, and not something you want to miss.
His live shows have a reputation for being beautiful and entirely encompassing
Examples of Frahm’s work include the perfectly beautiful soundtrack to German 2015 film ‘Victoria’, and his most recent single release ‘Spells’; an echoing cave of jagged synths, topped with choral voices and a flowing beat. His live shows have a reputation for being beautiful and entirely encompassing. Often paired with an incredible light show, and his music domineering any venue he plays in, Birmingham’s O2 Academy will be a great space to see Frahm perform. The venue, large enough to match his music’s awe, whilst intimate enough for it to be a mesmerising experience, will be sure to sell out soon, so grab tickets whilst you can here
