German composer, multi-instrumentalist and producer Nils Frahm will bring his otherworldly neoclassical music and hypnotic live show to QPAC for one night only on the 25 November.
Frahm’s breakthrough album Felt was released in 2011, and was created by placing felt on the hammers of the piano, later defining Frahm’s signature sound. In 2013, the multifaceted composer returned with his new album Spaces to critical acclaim, and in 2015 he launched ‘Piano Day’ an official global body with his closest friends to celebrate the piano via various innovative projects around the world, which culminated in his album Solo.
Frahm’s first film score was released in that same year for the film Victoria, which won him Best Film Music at the German Film Awards. He celebrated continued musical partnership with fellow artist Ólafur Arnalds after that, with the release of their collaborative works. After spending much of 2017 in hibernation, the minimalist master embarked on a worldwide tour in 2018, and is excited to bring his show to Queensland audiences in November. The show follows the announcement of Frahm’s new EP Encores 3 and album All Encores, both of which feature the artist’s unconventional approach to an age-old instrument – the piano.
Frahm’s lack of conventionality, combined with contemplative, intimate and mesmerising performances, has gained him global notoriety and the show promises to be both a visual and technical spectacle. For more information, head to QPAC.
