Jon Hopkins has been in a contemplative mood lately. In 2020, he fell in love with a hundred-year-old Tibetan bowl he had found in an antique shop in New Delhi. This sparked a series called Meditations with the title Singing Bowl (Ascension). Now the Royal College of Music London resident has returned, on solo (upright) piano, with a four-track EP. This is the little brother of his 2014 release Asleep Versions, a collection of four ambient covers of some of his favourite tracks. The album enjoys an all-British cast, with Roger and Brian Eno (Wintergreen), Thom Yorke (Dawn Chorus), Luke Abbott (Modern Driveway) and James Yorkston (Heron). On these four super-calm tracks we hear the piano at work, but also birdsong, or a clatter of dishes from the kitchen. It is as if he were inviting us into his musical meditation. "[...]whatever was going on outside my room is included and even accentuated," explains Hopkins. "I want people to hear not just the recordings but to feel how it felt to be there and make them. It was a deep experience." © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz

Erased Tapes, a Not-so-classic Label

Since its birth in 2007, Erased Tapes has made a name for itself as one of the most innovative labels of the last 15 years and enjoyed great commercial success. Although some fail to see past its neoclassical shopfront (Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds), the London-based label explores the outer limits of ambient, electronica and experimental with a catalogue that's smoothly curated by the German Robert Raths. Qobuz takes a closer look.

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.
