Nils Frahm's Music for Animals is a three-hour work meant to evoke an experience similar to spending time in nature and staring at flora or bodies of water -- something without a specific progression or outcome. Its title riffs on the proliferation of functional playlists on streaming services, and society's insistence on attaching a purpose to music and grouping recordings by certain listening habits. Of course, ambient music is generally used as a soundtrack for sleeping, meditation, or any number of daily activities, and Music for Animals works on those levels as well, but Frahm isn't suggesting how the audience is supposed to engage with the release. He's simply presenting it and saying that it exists, just like mountains, or forests, or rivers. The album's ten compositions are lengthy and minimal, with several coming close to half an hour each. None of them feature acoustic pianos, but it's hard to tell if the sounds are entirely generated by synthesizers or if other instruments are involved -- the fragile, wheezing "Do Dream" was almost certainly created using a harmonium. Like much of Frahm's work, the music embraces the ambiance of his surroundings, with incidental noises present, and his playing is spontaneous, even as everything feels slowed down to a glacial blur. A few pieces make excellent usage of Berlin School-style rippling pulsations, with "Sheep in Black and White" very slowly and subtly evolving and fluctuating in intensity. "Right Right Right" is the only track under ten minutes, and its flickering echoes and melancholy synth shades bring to mind Loscil's more dub-informed work. "World of Squares" is perhaps the coldest and most foreboding piece, going nowhere yet giving the impression of sinking deeper and deeper. Music for Animals might seem daunting due to its length and starkness, but it's actually one of Frahm's most listenable albums, rewarding immersion and half-ignored background placement alike.

Neoclassica: un nuovo mondo ai confini dell’elettronica e della classica

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama… Da qualche anno tutti questi nomi alla moda sono stati raggruppati sotto la vasta ed eterogenea etichetta “neoclassica”. A dire il vero, questo “panorama” somiglia piuttosto ad una banda eterogenea di artisti indagatori, che mescolano strumenti classici e produzione elettronica – in connessione cosciente con i pionieri del minimalismo americano – che deliziano i sensi ed aprono nuove prospettive da entrambi i lati del loro spettro musicale.

Nils Frahm: il pianoforte come non lo avete mai sentito suonare

Salutato dai critici di musica classica come dagli amanti di esperimenti elettronici, il talento di Nils Frahm ha messo d’accordo tutti negli ultimi dieci anni. Che usi un organo da chiesa o un sintetizzatore dotato di pedali per effetti, il pianista tedesco guarda sempre avanti. Impossibile non restarne affascinati.
