Amoeba Review

Karen, Hollywood 03/31/2014

If you are a Keith Jarrett fan, you should listen. Minimalist, thoughtful, pensive, joyful and...funny.


03/10/2014

Exceptional tenth release from Berliner composer Nils Frahm. Combining the tactility of Reichian percussive minimalism with the dreamy early-digital arpeggiated chord structures of someone like Steve Roach, Spaces asserts its uniqueness even more by the sheer fact of its being a compilation of live recordings (check out footage of the guy on YouTube for a truly jaw-dropping experience). Lest the one-man-band circus novelty take hold, let's move on. Nils Frahm is primarily a pianist and composer, and the prominence of IRL acoustic piano butting up against a timeline of increasing electronic capability situates him in line with the doors opened by multi-tiered organs or having extra fingers like the pianist in GATTACA. This is stunningly beautiful and complex-but-immersive music, made even the more shocking when Frahm takes a break from his swirling string-theory symphonies to give us a lilting, emotional, three minute composition for solo piano, a la someone like Keith Jarrett at his coolest and most miserable. Unreal! Buy this!
