German composer and pianist Nils Frahm spent the past two years building a studio in a historic Berlin building to capture the intricate instrumental arrangements that populate his new album, All Melody. Straddling the line between contemporary classical and the avant-garde, Frahm uses a pipe organ, a piano and racks of vintage synthesizers to build layered, hypnotizing compositions. His concerts feature plenty of on-stage multi-tasking, as Frahm flits between instruments, rapidly reconstructing and improvising variations on his cinematic melodies.
