Ambient - Released January 25, 2019 | Erased Tapes

After the release of Encore 1 in June 2018, Nils Frahm expanded the All Melody universe even further with Encores 2 just six months later. The artist explains, “The idea behind Encores is one we had from before All Melody; to do separate releases each with their own distinct musical style and theme, perhaps even as a triple album, but All Melody became larger than itself and took over any initial concepts. I think the idea of Encores is like musical islands that compliment All Melody”. Whereas the former was made minimalistically with just a piano and a harmonium, the German composed these five tracks in a more ambient way using a recording technique through an amplified stone well he found in Majorca! Once again, the acoustics are impressive on this album, especially on the intro Talisman with its long drawn-out melodies. Nils Frahm also brings us another round of electronic layers during the 12 minutes of his final track, Spells, which fluctuates between ambient and atmospheric techno with hushed voices and an early 90’s synth. 26 minutes of music to heal the mind. © Smaël Bouaici/Qobuz
