Nils Frahm (born 20 September 1982) is a German musician, composer, and record producer based in Berlin. He is known for combining classical and electronic music and for an unconventional approach to the piano in which he mixes a grand piano, upright piano, Roland Juno-60, Rhodes piano, drum machines, and Moog Taurus. As well as his solo work, Frahm has released collaborations with such notable performers as Anne Müller, Ólafur Arnalds, F. S. Blumm and Woodkid.
This album was written over the course of Nils Frahm’s recovery from a thumb injury that required screws, described in his own words below: I am sitting in front of a sheet of paper. My right hand is bending over my left thumb.
