Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

by Smaël Bouaici

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.

A piano craftsman 

Making the most out of his newly earned status as an icon, performing in places as diverse as the Royal Albert Hall to the edgiest techno clubs, Nils Frahm has his own instruments custom made, like the small 64-key piano built specially for him by David Klavins or his MIDI-controlled organ with pitch oscillator, without a doubt the only one of its kind in the world! All of this to carve out his own sound: “I want to make classical instruments sound in unexpected ways. By building an instrument yourself, you know it will be unique. You “own” the sound. In fact, that is my main criticism towards digital music production. All plug-ins sound the same. This makes me uncomfortable because I fight very hard to have my own sound.” Every opportunity counts to continue building his hybrid identity, like the studio he rebuilt at the Funkhaus (from the electric wiring to the mixing table and the pipe organ), the former East-German radio broadcasting centre that was transformed into a space for music studios and concert halls, where he composed his latest album All Melody. His modus operandi is light years away from Nahum Brodsky’s piano lessons. Though he has broken free from the shackles of the Conservatory, the atypical Nils Frahm remains humble: “When composing, I do something I’ve learnt from other musicians but also from life itself. Most of my musical ideas come from other musical ideas. That’s how we are all connected. Nothing is really mine. I didn’t get the idea to use 12 notes for each octave, but I still use the concept. It’s actually comforting to think I’m not making something completely unique. If it sounds good, I’m happy, no matter how I got there. I just want to create beautiful music.” 

Beautiful music, but ideally improvised, with a human side he has preserved since the very beginning: “I’m not made to be perfect like these Chinese pianists who all play the same. I’m too lazy for that and I wanted to play music more freely, to create my own sound like Thelonious Monk, who used to play what he felt at each particular instant.” Nils Frahm advocates for a music that shows its defects, that is proud of them like a war scar. “Artists always try to hide their imperfections, but this is the mere consequence of being human and ultimately what makes us interesting. Music is more about emotions than technical skills. Playing the piano allows me to manage my emotions better. And it’s wonderful when other people tell me it helps them too.” Passionate about psychology (he admits he would certainly have had a career in that field, if it had not been for the piano), Nils Frahm loves seeing the effects his music has on people, how he can alter behaviours by simply using tones. “When I’ve performed well on stage, people leave the hall happy, I can feel it. When things go wrong, at least, we can always play music and prevent people from feeling completely desperate. That’s my religion. I’m not Bob Dylan, I don’t have the words to express it, so I do it through emotional experiences. We have all the answers within us and they can be revealed through a conversation, an artwork or a song. I only have one life to do it, it seems very short!” By opening up a new path to channel his expression, the German musician is probably the best thing that has happened to electronic music since the TB-303, even if he probably remains the only one who knows how to navigate it. Long live Nils Frahm!
