D/B presents: Nils Frahm, Stephan Mathieu & Caro Mikalef @ .HBC Berlin | Friday 17.12.2010

Nils Frahm, born in 1982, had an early introduction to music. During his childhood he was taught to play piano by Nahum Brodski – a student of the last scholar of Tschaikowski.It was through this that Nils began to immerse himself in the styles of the classical pianists before him as well as contemporary composers.

For a musician this early in his career, Frahm displays an incredibly developed sense of control and restraint in his work, catching the ear of many fans including Thom Yorke, who featured the opening song ‘Ambre’ in Radiohead’s HQ stereo playlist.

As the recognition continues to grow for his previous solo piano works ‘Wintermusik’ and ‘The Bells’, we are pleased to announce that winter 2010/11 will see his next album release on Erased Tapes.

Der Klangkonzeptionalist Stephan Mathieu und die argentinische Künstlerin Caro Mikalef werden ein Recital für Oktavspinett Virginal und E-Bows geben. Das Stück basiert auf Fragmenten des Renaissance Komponisten Antonio de Cabezon und ist der musikalische Teil des audiovisuellen Werks ‘Constellations’, welches bei Sonar2010 uraufgeführt wurde.
