When it comes to defining the space between classical and electronic music, hardly any other name is mentioned as often as that of the Berlin-based pianist, composer and producer, Nils Frahm.
His unconventional approach to an age-old instrument, played contemplatively and intimately, and his sonic alchemy of ambient textures and atmospheric electronica, has won him many fans around the world.
Following the release of his critically acclaimed and expansive album Music For Animals in September 2022, Nils made his return to the live stage for the first time since 2019 with his current global tour, Music For. Since then, he is back touring all over the world, presenting brand-new music moving between the worlds of experimental, ambient and electronica.
