Berlin-based composer and producer, Nils Frahm, is in the midst of an international tour and is bringing his music to Vancouver with special guests Dawn of Midi for one night only this Friday, November, 7th, where he will play a Mason & Hamlin Concert Grand courtesy of Pacey’s Pianos at The Imperial (319 Main Street) in a concert sponsored by Timbre Concerts. Frahm is known for his uniquely  innovative and unconventional approach to the piano and for his intimate and poignant compositions. He is also known for his astonishing improvisational gifts and incorporates this ability into his concerts.  According to Frahm, his “heart lies in improvisation, in the magic of a moment where, inspired by the space and the audience, [his] fingers can create new compositions loosely based around [his] familiar melodies.” His contemplative and intimate style of music has won him many fans internationally.  Previous solo piano works include ‘Wintermusik’ (2009) and ‘The Bells’ (2009). In 2011, Frahm released his critically acclaimed record Felt’. He followed up the album with a solo synthesizer EP ‘Juno’ and ‘Screws’ in 2012.  In 2013, Frahm released his follow up to Juno with a work entitled Juno Reworked with guest reworks by Luke Abbot and Clark.
